COMMITTED TO EXCELLENCE
START TO FINISH
The highly regarded raw starch of Vitargo comes mainly from specially selected and strict non-GMO contract farming in the south-east of Sweden. The farmer-owned cooperative plant in south-east Sweden where Vitargo is produced is completely computerized and controlled to ensure the highest quality grade available.
The Vitargo powder is processed in a “closed system”, meaning it goes directly from production into the packaging. Vitargo is produced in a factory which only produces starch. This means that there is no risk of contamination. Each and every single batch is tested by an accredited laboratory.
