The pre-processing of peat and herbs is outsourced to two local companies. Also techno chemical processing, packing, product development and research have been outsourced. Oriola Oy handles the domestic distribution to 850 pharmacies and 375 health shops.

 

 

As raw materials pure and effective organic herbs from Lapland

Over thousands of years, the plants of Lapland have evolved to thrive in a challenging growth environment. Lapland herbs contain exceptionally pure and effective active ingredients compared to plants grown somewhere else. It is these powerful Lappish herbs that are used in Detria products.

As a base for its products, Detria uses only the best herbs, handpicked in the purest parts of Lapland. In these areas, strict upper limits are set for the concentration of sulfur, nitrogen and heavy metal in the ground. Herbs used in Detria products meet the GAP standard for raw medicinal herbs.

Collecting methods, time and hygiene are precisely regulated and monitored. A sample of each herb batch is taken to ensure the best possible quality. Detria has developed a quality control system that enables tracing of a faulty batch to the growing place. The concentration of effective ingredients in the products is closely monitored. Every product batch is sampled and analyzed.
