UK cGMP quality, British grown and produced organic herbal medicines and botanical extracts for practitioners and healthcare industry – the ingredients for sustainable natural healthcare

Rutland Biodynamics Ltd was the first and is still possibly the only on-farm British or European licensed cGMP producer and manufacturer of bulk botanical extracts from home grown certified  biodynamic organic herbs. Under UK law, this means that we make

  • (a) ingredients for practitioners to make up into finished prescriptions for their patients, or for other authorised manufacture
  • (b) products that are branded and licensed for retail sale, either for our own-brand, other own label or contract packing.

Our customers tell us that the three words that best sum up Rutland’s relationship with the profession are quality, service and trust

This is because, uniquely, we grow the vast bulk of our own GAP, GACP and GMP fresh organic and biodynamic herbal medicines here in Rutland.

Therefore, unlike other herbal processors, we have complete control over the quality of our raw materials, which are grown and carefully selected for their quality and vibrancy. This is overseen by a Qualified Person (under the Medicines Act), who is also a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists and of the College of Practitioners of Phytotherapy.

We remain the only practitioners’ herb farm with adequate quality assurance to be licensed by the MHRA as a manufacturer of herbal liquids under the Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products Directive 2004/24/EC

If you have any questions about our philosophy, methods, products or services please feel free to contact us.
