Organic Greens from New Zealand’s Heartland

Folium Drying Limited (FDL) was established in 2016 to meet the increasing international demand for high quality, New Zealand grown, certified organic plant powders. Realizing that the shorter the time from harvest to drying the higher the product quality FDL has built New Zealand’s newest and most sophisticated on farm hot air drying operation.

FDL grows and processes certified organic barley grass, certified organic wheatgrass and other certified organic leaf crops in New Zealand’s cereal growing heartland – the Canterbury Plains.

These certified organic crops are tended with expert care. They receive natural sunlight, certified organic fertilizers, sustainable irrigation and natural rainfall. The crops grow in rich ‘bioactive’ soil and dry into the highest quality plant powders available. The product has a mild, pleasant taste and vibrant, green appearance. New Zealand grown and processed greens set the standard for quality and taste around the world.
