Who we aren’t

We are not your typical natural products company

We do not speak in terms of extracts, but rather in terms of natural compounds that we identify and study in all of their complexity to better understand behavior patterns and harness their great potential. We apply pharmacological methodologies to maximize nature’s potential.

We are not a conventional research center

Our work is not aimed at producing scientific publications. Our goal is to develop finished products for the industry. To offer you real solutions.

We are not an agrochemical multinational

All our active ingredients are derived from natural sources. We do not work with chemically synthesized molecules.

Who we are

MAAVi Innovation Center

We are Europe’s largest biotechnological innovation hub specializing in natural compounds derived from botany, microbiology, and microalgae.

We are the global global benchmark in the search for solutions to transition from synthetic chemistry to natural alternatives while maintaining efficacy and profitability.

We are at the forefront of innovation. Through our AI platform we maximize our expertise of natural compounds and their behavior patterns.

We reveal nature’s most elusive and ferocious side

We use biotechnological processes to extract a wealth of compounds from natural sources such as botany, microbiology, microalgae, and bioinformatics

“The sea holds the key to save humanity. The MAAVi Innovation Center provides us with the AI-based technology and resources we need to make this a reality and, more importantly, to share it with the rest of the world. Science has taught us about plankton, but not how to use it as food, which is what it’s all about—discovering and decoding the secrets of the sea.”

“We met by chance, but it didn’t take us long to discover that we had the same passion for and commitment to to excellence in our work”. Angel’s ambition of discovering ingredients in the sea has become a reality thanks to our artificial intelligence tool.”

Ángel León, chef of the Sea at Aponiente, the most sustainable restaurant in the world, and Félix García, CEO of MAAVi Innovation Center and Kimitec

Open Innovation 360º

Through our Open Innovation 360o strategy, we broaden our scope and accelerate the transition from synthetic to natural chemistry by extending our potential and expertise to industries from various sectors.

Food industry

Are you looking for an ally to guide you through this natural revolution? We offer solutions to eliminate the use of artificial chemicals in your raw materials as well as natural alternatives to synthetic food additives (elimination of E numbers).
We help you in setting up a successful circular economy by increasing the value of your byproducts.

Agrochemical companies

This sector has been essential to increasing agricultural productivity for many decades. However, it must deal with an impending portfolio change as a result of new regulations and trends. Biopesticides and biostimulants will be the REAL alternative to synthetic chemistry, but not at the expense of efficacy or profitability.
