Valverbe is an amazing blend between ancient herbal traditions and advanced research on new production technologies.
It was created in 1985 in Bellino – 1500 m above sea level in high Val Varaita – an unspoiled setting, a pearl of Alpine architecture, where man and nature find the right balance respecting each other.
Dedicated to the cultivation, drying and processing organic medicinal herbs, Valverbe is currently based in Melle, middle Val Varaita.
Particularly known for its “mountain herbal teas”, Valverbe – cooperative agricultural company– works following a unique logic, from the cultivation to the finished product packed in filters.
Its herbs – organic, OGM-free and freshly harvested – are dried using an innovative “open-cell” system, that takes away the water but keeps the cellular membrane intact, as well as the active ingredients, the aroma and the flavor: a true revolution compared with the traditional system, with amazing results!
Herbs dried with this method, once they are rehydrated, swell and regain the turgor of fresh plants, thus creating the optimal conditions for an effective extraction process when preparing the herbal tea.
After being cleaned, sieved, milled in the right size, mixed in proper proportions following traditional recipes, the herbs are “naturally” cleaned from their bacterial load and packaged in double-wrapped filters in organic cotton, without wire staples, using solar energy from a 120 Kwp photovoltaic system.
