Our Ipecacuanha root material is harvested at approximately 30 cm length and a finger wide, with a 5% ipecac alkaloid percentage. The crops are transferred into tents that are used as dry-dock for the roots.
From the dry-dock the roots and vegetative material are separated in preparation for packaging. The prepped materials are weighed and the roots are packed in export bags. The vegetative material is used to grow new seedlings to grow future crops with.
Before exporting a lab test is done and certification is obtained. From here the orders are finalized for local or global distribution to any client facility requested.
Average fulfillment practice is based on rolling annual client contracts with regular delivery cycles of 1000 kg root material at a time.
