Our mission is to change the way the world is colored. We are introducing novel natural colorants to meet consumers demand of better & healthier products.

Biocolorants do exist, but they are expensive to use and don´t hold their color when cookd or processed; insect-based dyes aren´t halal, vegan or kosher.
We allow banks to track and build a graph of every single interaction they have with loan applicants from looking to booking, whether that's through their Website, mobile banking app or social media.
