Healthy & Conscious
Always good for you, now better for the planet
Achieving excellence in our products while protecting the environment is our healthy obsession; from start to finish and from the most essential to the smallest details what we do and how we do it defines us:
Our next step in going green
Making a difference
We are a Biotech company with a constant R&D activity:
Our commitment to quality and traceability is strong and unique:
Our Mico-Quality production process includes up to 3 rounds of analytical control of both raw materials and final products to ensure maximum safety and effectiveness.
Maximum concentration via a dual extraction process: Dual extraction, an exclusive patent-pending process, allows us to more efficiently and sustainably obtain standardised levels of active biomolecules in our medicinal mushrooms at higher concentrations than those offered by other natural products.
Glass not only has an infinite life span, but also, thanks to the thickness and topaz colour of our new containers, protects and preserves the activity of the extracts within, eliminating 100% the possibility of material transfer to the product.
Did you know that mushrooms are invaluable for the recovery and regeneration of soil? Hifas da Terra (HdT) carries out environmental research projects on the recovery of soil contaminated by hydrocarbons and substances derived from mining extraction as well as soil devastated by forest fires. While certain fungi are able to degrade pollutants, others bring life back to inert soils by interracting with the roots of chestnuts, oaks and various conifers. These species of mycorrhizal fungi provide great resistance and vigour to the trees they interract with, helping them to survive in adverse conditions.
The natural greenery that surrounds and characterises HdT headquaters requires excellent management of water resources. To this end, we have a well that collects rainwater which, with the appropriate ozone treatment, serves to supply the company’s main water needs, including dealing with fires. The biomass derived from the maintenance of the forests that surround us is used as the biofuel that generates heat in winter for our radiant natural slate floors.
We also use a closed loop system for the management of waste from the cultivation sacks and logs we use in the production of our medicinal mushrooms. Once the production cycle of the sacks and logs is over, the resulting substrate is used to nourish our soils with organic matter.
THE HIFAS GROUP generates more oxygen than it consumes. Thanks to Hifas Foresta, more than 120,000 trees are planted every year. These trees play a major role in the restoration of the landscape and the soil. They also support sustainable economy by generating valuable resources in the countryside for future generations.
In 2028 Hifas da Terra will be 30 years old. By that date our commitment is to generate more oxygen than we consume in all our production processes, eliminate plastic from our products, promote the use of recycled materials and reward attitudes in line with our philosophy. Can we count on your support?
