Manufacturing & Production

American Botanicals specializes in the manufacturing and production of herbs, spices, and botanicals. This process often includes drying, cutting, powdering, micronization, and sifting. We offer cleaning of ingredients including de-stoning, de-stemming and sorting of materials using an air classifier which will separate pieces based on size, shape, and density.

Separation and removal of metals from ingredients is also offered to help ensure a quality product. Ensuring your product is free of contaminants is our highest priority. All botanicals are processed in accordance with customer specifications. Finally, our packaging and shipping department protects your product and makes certain that it is delivered in a safe and timely manner.
