Our Facilities and Processes
Graminex® is the exclusive grower and manufacturer of solvent-free Flower Pollen Extracts™. Graminex® has its corporate office in Saginaw, Michigan and production facilities in Deshler, Ohio. In Northwest Ohio, the production facility encompasses 75,000 ft2 of manufacturing space, 285,000 ft3 of finished warehousing, 365,000 ft3 of raw material storage and is surrounded by 6,500 acres of wholly owned farmland. It is from these fields that Graminex® harvests Flower Pollen Extracts™ for the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, food, animal health and cosmetic industries. The raw flower pollen passes through our state-of-the-art cGMP certified facility to create the highest quality Flower Pollen Extracts™ in the market.
Few natural product companies in the world can claim to have the total supply chain under direct and strict control. By maintaining this control over the process, Graminex® is able to manage product integrity and traceability.
The process starts at the planting stage with certified seed grown in ideal farm locations based on growing conditions. Graminex® Flower Pollen Extract™ raw material is grown without the use of pesticides or herbicides. At the optimal time for pollen harvest, Graminex® uses custom-designed harvesting equipment to bring the raw material into our nearby manufacturing facility.
Once raw material quality specifications are approved, the raw material then moves through our proprietary process that isolates pure pollen grains. The pure pollen is held in temperature-controlled storage to ensure long-term stability, potency and efficacy.
After passing through multiple quality-control checkpoints throughout the extraction process, the finished Graminex® Flower Pollen Extracts™ are ready for shipment to our customers worldwide.
