Cactus Sourcing


Nexira has established sustainable and exclusive relationships with local growers from North Africa, with premium quality resulting from natural trust and mutual interest, guaranteeing reliable and long-lasting sourcing.

The family company contributes to environmental protection through a natural production method that respects the various principles of organic farming. This growing method also helps to combat desertification by limiting erosion and enriching biodiversity

Cactus can be harvested and processed all year long, which provides a secure and stable source of income for farmers. It thus reduces the production risks related to climate sensitive agricultural products.

This long-term partnership ensures that the company benefits from a regular, high-quality source of cactus raw material for its premium weight management solutions

Thanks to Nexira’s transfer of industrial know-how and technology as well as continuous guaranteed support, a state-of-the-art factory has been set up locally.
