The Canadian company – Tait Labs – takes advantage of the medicinal virtues of mandarin skin for healthy and environmental purpose. It combines human health and environment.
The creation of Tait Labs
Tait Labs was founded in 2011 by chemistry expert – Andrew Tait. During his PhD, he found out more about Traditional Chinese Medicine Techniques that could cure specific disease. Dr. Tait was actually the first to choose this topic for his degree. Now through his company he desires to modernize these ancient techniques into nowadays food industry. From an extract of mandarin skins that have been upcycled from crop leftovers of the juicing and canning industry, Tait Labs conceives and sells digestive food supplement. The juicing and canning industry throws away 4.000.000 mandarin skins per year!
