Becarre Natural represents, distributes and develops natural actives for Europe's nutraceutical, personal care and pharmaceutical industries.
Because the company believes that these industries value reliability and know-how above all else, it focuses on specific needs with proven products that have been extracted from sustainable resources under very strict processes.
Becarre - pronounced 'be care' - is the French word for the musical mark that cancels alterations, such as sharp or flat signs. The English translation is 'the natural sign', which exactly encapsulates the firm's strategy. Just as music requires the correct notes to be played at the right time, Becarre Natural knows that its formulations must be tailored exactly to its customers' requirements.
After more than 15 years' experience in food ingredients and additives, before specialising in botanical ingredients and nutrition, the founder decided to create a company focused on plant extracts that was supported by science and carefully standardised in order to differentiate its products from other plant extracts based on plant extract ratio.
It also wanted to be able to describe its products in detail to customers to ensure good traceability, guaranteed quality and full regulatory support. For this reason, Becarre Natural became a member of the Botanical Group, and is one of the co-authors of annexes II and III of the plant decree. It also delivers regular lectures on plant extracts to explain how it processes extracts, and the advantages and limitations of the techniques it employs, as well as the company's safety data and unique marketing points.
Every Becarre Natural product is provided with a clear specification sheet, information on use and details of supporting studies, as well as alternatives, whenever necessary.
The company believes that the best customer satisfaction is achieved with its support. It also asks its partners to stand for environmental preservation, sustainability and corporate responsibility. As Becarre Natural's partners are committed to the continuous improvement of their quality systems in respect of local regulations, it pays careful attention to the relevant documentation and regulatory information that are passed on to its customers.
Becarre Natural's products are listed in a 48-page brochure that is renewed every six months, where they are detailed and classified according to their activities or their fields of application, as well as various articles from contributors:
