We work according to traditional Māori protocols that embody respect for the land and sea, and the life that ﬂourishes there. This ensures a high level of sustainability in our operations as well as optimal potency of ingredients. We handpick from the wild in harmony with the seasons, selecting the most vibrant parts of the plants that are naturally richer in active ingredients. And we take only as much as we need, with an eye to future generations.
