Reuniting Science and Nature through rigorous targeted research.

At Herbal Apothecary we seek to produce natural medicines of the highest quality. We manufacture under ISO9001:2015 and Organic certification and according to HACCP and GMP principles. We are supported in our work by highly qualified scientific personnel.

Our In-House Laboratory

Our new laboratory is fully equipped with a brand new HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography) system and managed by a fully trained Research Chemist under the Knowledge Transfer Partnership scheme. This programme is supported by the University of Bradford, Centre for Pharmaceutical Engineering Science. We are now able to carry out both routine in-process analysis as well as specific research work into plant materials and bee products. Our quality and research work is supervised by Professor Anant Paradkar, Director of the Centre for Pharmaceutical Engineering Science.
