Specialist in medicinal
and fresh plant extracts
1st Generation: Creation
The company was founded after the war by Roland Rousselot, a farmer who specialised in growing and selling artichokes through local markets as well as through Parisian wholesalers. Nowadays a collective of local farmers follow our quality criteria to produce all of the fresh raw material we need to produce very high-quality botanical extracts such as Artichoke or California Poppy.
2nd Generation: Production
His son Serge Rousselot continued the business and made use of the large quantities of artichoke leaves left in the fields after the heads had been harvested. A huge dryer was then installed to dry the leaves for sale to local herbalists. This was followed by modernising the entire operation’s machinery, upgrading the macerating vessels to produce artichoke juice with a low dry matter content. This gave the business the means to supply the booming pharmaceutical industry. This operation and in depthunderstanding of artichoke is a key feature of EVEAR Extraction which produces a high-quality Organic Cynarin extract titrated at 2.5 with near 100% traceability.
3rdGeneration – International Expansion
The company metamorphosed again when Guillaume Rousselot, the founder’s grandson, developed the international side of the business, which will make Evear Extraction one of the leading industrial specialists in botanical extracts and a preferred supplier to the health and food industry, with quality extracts suitable for local and cultural uses. The company is now passing on its knowledge about botanicals from around the world and has achieved in depth traceability on its extracts by combining sourcing, extraction processes and laboratory test procedures that are performed at each stage of the production process.
We have now achieved excellence on extracts like artichoke and valerian.
Quality and Certification
With 50 years of expertise behind us on artichoke, EVEAR Extraction is diversifying its production into a wide range of botanical extracts derived from raw materials harvested in their country of origin, prioritising cultivation on native soil when possible and guaranteeing optimum traceability.
