OUR COMMITMENT 


JUST THE RIGHT DOSAGE OF PLANT IN OUR HTVE® WELL-BEING RANGE

A delicious Well-Being infusion in just a few minutes
To be really efficient and release all active ingredients a traditional herbal tea needs to be steeped for some time and generally requires a decoction of 10-20g of plant brewed in 1L of water for about 15-20 minutes – and it should be used the very same day. Lacking time few people follow such a tedious but essential ritual. With its patented  process DIFFUSSENCE uses just plain water and the plant in a complex protocol set up by scientists to make teas and infusions which provide the right daily dose to benefit from the traditional plant properties, SIMPLY, NATURALLY and in a FEW MINUTES only.

Just the right plant quantity to benefit from all plant properties
Numerous plants have healing properties provided a certain amount a day is consumed. Without such a minimum daily plant equivalent (daily plant intake) such plants have no traditional and beneficial effects. By using two tea or infusion bags a day in our  WELL-BEING range you will benefit from the minimum requirements to enjoy the traditional properties of each plant.

Formulas
The plants selected by Diffussence for all  WELL-BEING infusions are listed in the EFSA assessment (European Food Safety Authority) of physiological plant properties for which the health claim has been or is about to be published. Failing European regulations these plants are covered by the health claims of Member States which are temporarily allowed by EFSA pending future regulation. You will find a features a consolidated list of health claims for plants and the conditions of use with the daily plant equivalent in Article 13 of EFSA.


A GENTLE REGARD FOR PLANTS, A GENTLE THERAPY WITH PLANTS

Why denaturate and alter chemically what is naturally efficient?
The  process uses neither solvent nor artificial support, only water and plants. All plants utilized by our partners and our company have been carefully selected and inspected to provide high-quality infusions, notably by plant inspection, organoleptic testing, chemical and microbiological analyses as well as identification of pesticide, allergen and GMO residues.

Plant integrity: nothing but the whole plant
The  process is a gentle non-selective method complying with herbal medicine requirements.
- Using the whole plant and nothing else releases all the beneficial active plant ingredients. Instead of bringing forward one single molecule the underlying principle stresses the joint action of all active ingredients for a larger aggregate effect.
- Using a gentle extraction process with a gentle regard for plants maintains high biological and organic quality.

HIGH-QUALITY INGREDIENTS

Essential commitments shared by our partners
We have invested time and energy in creating each of our products and have selected our partners to share our commitment. We are all committed to total quality and food safety. Our partners hold a number of stringent certifications, depending on their business, such as IFS (International Food Standard), BRC Food (British Retail Consortium), ISO 22000. These standards use the HACCP method  (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) defining, assessing and controlling the threats against health and food safety.

A voluntary approach for utmost customer satisfaction
Presently the DIFFUSSENCE Quality Management Department is implementing a new QSE (Quality, Security, Environment) management and food safety system.
Simultaneously a Fairtrade approach is being developed with Fairtrade/Max Havelaar products, to pay a fair price for primary crops produced by farmers in the southern hemisphere. Further commitments of our company are to integrate CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) considerations in relevant policy areas. The FLO-CERT certification agency performs not only quality control and checks on Max Havelaar products, but also the following inspections: labour rights, environmental protection as well as fairness of trade practises.

Organic farming certification
Diffussence provides a range of products from organic farming. The independent certification agency Ecocert® guarantees organic farming production by imposing severe restrictions on the use of synthetic chemicals.
All our organic and non organic plants comply with the European legislation on pesticide residues.


INNOVATION ADDRESSING BOTH MODERN LIFESTYLE AND ENVIRONMENT

Enjoying plants with the latest technology
We are plant lovers and wish to widen access to traditional plant use. Back to nature, intense flavours, well-being through plants… we are seeking all those while living in modern times with a modern lifestyle. For this very reason Diffussence has developed a capsule for tea and infusion which would be compatible with Nespresso®* coffee-makers and ready within seconds thanks to the innovative process.

Towards sustainable packaging
We are committed to utilize sustainable packaging where possible so as to reduce carbon footprint.
Diffussence has selected a biodegradable and compostable bio-plastic for their Nespresso®*compatible capsule as well as the crystalline bag, complying with NF EN 13432 and Green-Pla standards respectively. Both the European and the Japanese standard guarantee degradation of packaging without emission of toxic residues into the environment.
