The PELAFORCE™ Story
PELAFORCE™ is rooted in African ethnopharmacology. We are passionate about discovering, protecting and developing southern African botanical wisdom. We are poised to unlock the tremendous potential of southern African medicinal herbs and bring these resources to a global platform. We wish to share the success of the African pharmacopeia with South Africa and the world.
At PELAFORCE™ we are committed to combining twenty-first century innovation with ancient African indigenous knowledge. We are experts in traditional medicinal knowledge and our team maintains strong ties with local plant users. We are also leaders in sustainable harvesting and diligent partners with rural harvesters.
Our products are backed by science: PELAFORCE™ has research partnerships with a number of South African universities, including Stellenbosch University (SU). Together with SU, we are pioneering novel processing techniques to bring our customers tailor-made botanical raw materials and extracts.
PELAFORCE™ is driven by superior quality – we believe our standards of food safety set us apart. We have invested in a state-of-the-art quality assurance system with FSSC 22000 accreditation. This Food Safety System Certification demonstrates our company’s robust and effective management system. Our team is well positioned to meet the requirements of regulators, food business clients and consumers.
PELAFORCE™ seeks to empower our clients to reap the benefits of these valued botanicals, thus enabling others to share in the healing power of nature. We believe that the botanical resources of Africa may hold the key to the treatment of major medical and health ailments, and we want to be at the forefront of these discoveries. We believe that the star of our natural medicine chest is undoubtedly the African geranium, Pelargonium sidoides.
