ActinidinActive® and KiwiEnzyme© KEP40 are manufactured to meet the demands of a wide range of commercial applications.  We pride ourselves in producing the highest quality product from New Zealand kiwifruit.  Our story has grown from interesting roots.

In 2001 Garrick Wells was operating a Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE) plant, it became a leading provider of SFE services across Australia and New Zealand.  Garrick became a specialist in extraction from plant waste streams, upcycling the consumer market rejects.  Being in New Zealand, one of these opportunities lay in kiwifruit, from which Garrick extracted high-quality oil from the seeds for the skin-care industry.

As fortune would have it, one day a business associate asked him if he could isolate the enzyme Actinidin from the remainder of the kiwifruit. Although this process did not involve supercritical extraction, Garrick accepted the challenge. Now, with his associate Greg Stratton, they produce tons of Standardised Actinidin powder in various strengths for various uses and market it throughout the world.

Through years of diligent research and development, Garrick and Greg have perfected the Actinidin products they now offer.
