Our world

The story begins with research into the anti-fungal properties of New Zealand's indigenous herb, Horopito. Forest Herbs Research discovered that Horopito, a rainforest dweller for 65 millions years, had developed a unique bio-active compound that helps the plant ward of fungal attacks in its damp, forest habitat.

to studying and growing Horopito in Golden Bay, New Zealand
