Our history

It all started in the early 2000s with studies by researcher Zelita Maria Santos Rocha on Brazilian biodiversity, the potential of plant species and their contributions to human health and well-being. At that time, the Plantus industry germinated from the need to make research in the field of natural products from our biodiversity, impacting health, quality of life, employment and income. generating a sustainable process and encouraging environmental preservation. Thus, on August 27, 2010, the company Plantus Industry was founded.

The company started to operate in a physical structure that was used for the production of perfumes of a former French owner. Over the years, it has expanded its infrastructure and machinery, to maintain a high degree of biosecurity in its facilities, considered one of the best in Brazilian northeastern region. Even in the early years, it began to stand out in the market for technological development of sustainable products from Brazilian Biodiversity, preserving and valuing the bio-socio-cultural knowledge of the country's traditional communities. In its 12 years of operation, it stands out in the national and global market as an exporter of plant products, being the company with the largest number of certified organic plants in Brazil. It also stands out for conducting its business ethically, with integrity and respecting current legislation.
