A family company since 1930
The Ricola brand was created by confectionery business Richterich & Compagnie in 1930 based on the twin pillars of innovation and quality awareness. The family company now exports its herb specialties to more than 50 countries around the world. As a pioneer in organic herb cultivation, Ricolas close ties with culture and architecture were established early on in the companys history. These ties are further reinforced through the two Ricola foundations and its own art collection.
Natural methods from Switzerland
We give our herbs the time they need to grow. But once they have been harvested, we have to work quickly. Because fresh herbs are sensitive, it is not good to keep them in transit for long periods of time. This is why we cultivate and process our herbs right here in Switzerland. The plants are sent to the Herb Center at our production site in Laufen, where they are dried, cleaned, cut, stored, and mixed. Next, the natural essences and active ingredients are extracted from the herbs and mixed together with all the other ingredients. This mixture is cooked, molded into drops and pearls, and left to cool. In other words, every single step of the production process takes place in Switzerland.
