Kalsec has been a pioneer in extracting rosemary for its naturally occurring flavor and powerful antioxidant components for over three decades. As farmers, we know that crops can change drastically in the blink of an eye. That is why not only do we grow our own vertically-integrated rosemary in Texas for our rosemary extract, but support the local economy of Morocco with their rosemary yield as well through a select group of suppliers. This ensures that in the case of flooding, poor crops or bad yield in one area, we would still have supply for our customers.

Vertically Integrated Rosemary Extract
For over 60 years, Kalsec has been committed to both the planet and people. Kalsec’s experience with rosemary at our farms in Texas have created better plants through continuous improvements in natural seed selection, plant breeding, and crop selection. These efforts have led to more efficient and robust rosemary plants with powerful bioactives, increased yields, and significant reduction of land and water usage.
Rosemary from Morocco
Morocco is the top global producer of rosemary. Native to the hills of the Mediterranean, rosemary provides the best of what nature has to offer as a natural alternative to artificial preservatives.
Rosemary grows wild on the Moyen Atlas mountain range and is harvested by hand in compliance with Moroccan authorities to allow for plant regeneration. No pesticides are used, meaning it undergoes “wild harvesting.” The region’s rosemary acts as a buffer to the desert, keeping it from overtaking Morocco.
