Centroflora Group

Those who help us make it happen


We are a Brazilian research, development and innovation company base on Biodiversity.

The company operates in bioprospecting and technology development, from the research phase to the development of prototypes using products/processes with sustainable use, originating from biodiversity and/or biotechnological routes, always respecting the legislation on access to genetic heritage. It has been carrying out expeditions in Brazilian biomes, collecting and processing plant species in a sustainable way, for projects to discover new molecules.


Brazbio was founded in 2018 as a joint venture between Centroflora Group, a Brazilian company that operates in the production and sale of natural pharmaceutical ingredients, and Givaudan, a Swiss company and world leader in the production of flavors and fragrances. The company was created to continue the Partnerships for a Better World Program, developed over 15 years ago by the Centroflora Group, and to expand the services provided to other companies that use natural ingredients from biodiversity. Brazbio focuses on the management and execution of projects with a socio-environmental impact, aiming at the supply of natural ingredients within the principles of ethical biotrade. Its areas of expertise are certifications, botanical research, development and supply with traceability and sustainability from origin.
