Sami-Sabinsa Group Opens 2nd Continuous Extraction Facility to Meet Demand for Curcumin C3 Complex® and Other Extracts

October 10, 2017


Sabinsa Corporation manufactures and markets phytonutrients, Ayurvedic herbal extracts and specialty fine chemicals for nutritional, pharmaceutical and food industries. Sabinsa has carved a niche for itself by its extensive research support for its customers and products, and the scientific credentials of its key technical staff. Founded in 1988 by Muhammed Majeed, Ph.D., Sabinsa is a company dedicated to the principles of tradition, innovation and research. Sabinsa's efforts have begun to earn the company vast recognition, in addition to growing sales.

Bangalore, India (October 10, 2017) – Sabinsa’s parent company Sami Labs, which manufactures and markets phytonutrients and standardized herbal extracts, specialty fine chemicals, and organic intermediates used in the nutritional, pharmaceutical and food industries, inaugurated a second Continuous Extraction Plant on October 5, 2017, to meet demand for Curcumin C3 Complex®.

This new facility will be exclusively used for curcumin extraction, increasing production of Curcumin C3 Complex to 25 tons from the previous capacity of 6 tons. The two Continuous Extraction units are spread across 5 acres in Dobaspet, Bangalore, India.

Seeking to avoid the seemingly ubiquitous artificial ingredients in the food and cosmetics industry, health conscious consumers have increased the demand for natural herbal extracts globally. That preference for natural, accompanied by a robust body of research, has fueled enormous growth in the curcumin extract market. According to a new research report by Frost & Sullivan, the global curcumin market is expected to reach more than $100 million by 2023, which is growing at a CAGR of 12.6% from 2017 to 2023. While the demand for curcumin in dietary supplements, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics have experienced continuous growth, nutraceuticals make up more than 50% of the curcumin demand share, both by volume and revenue, and continue to grow faster than the other segments.

“Because of turmeric’s historic place in India’s traditional medical system Ayurveda, India dominates world turmeric production, with 80% taking place here“ said Dr. Muhammed Majeed, Founder and Chairman, Sami -Sabinsa Group. “With our Curcumin C3 Complex the world leader in curcumin ingredients, expanding extraction capacity to ensure that we can continue to meet demand was the logical next step.”
