Artemis International (Fort Wayne, IN) has signed a distribution agreement for the U.S. with Distillerie Bonollo Umberto S.p.A, a leader in the distillation of grappa. As part of the agreement, Artemis will be representing Bonollo’s Ecovitis, a standardized grape seed extract with the highest level of oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC) available. Ecovitis employs a proprietary and innovative water-based membrane extraction method.

“We are always looking to diversify our ingredient portfolio with innovative, science-supported products,” said Leslie Gallo, president of Artemis International, in a press release. “Our focus has been on dark berry extracts – elderberry, aronia berry, tart cherry, etc., so we are excited about this new venture with Bonollo, and adding Ecovitis grape seed extract to our offerings."

“The strategic agreement with Artemis International is instrumental for Bonollo,” stated Paolo Morazzoni, scientific advisor of Distillerie Bonollo Umberto. “We are excited to introduce to the North American market our advanced technological approach for introducing new generations of plant-derived extracts such as Ecovitis.”
