About Us

Chemie Research and Manufacturing was established over 35 years ago as the research and international sales company for our grapefruit extract. Our founder, Dr. Jakob Harich, developed and patented the grapefruit seed and pulp extraction process in the 1970’s.  Additional proprietary enhancements for patent extension were made in 1995 and 1997.  This is the only original extraction process.

Dr. Harich was a pioneer in the search for natural products.  In the early 1960’s, while living in Florida, a closer look at the native plants and fruit naturally progressed to researching citrus and its by-products. He began to focus on grapefruit and the potential benefits of the many phytochemicals present in the fruit.

Our formulation and manufacturing process was the result of years of experimentation with grapefruit and its major bioactive components.

Dr. Harich harnessed the power of grapefruit through the development of a versatile antimicrobial product.

Our team is focused on continued research and development for natural products and applications that meet the needs of our customers. We are committed to product quality and customer service .
