Kemesys said the natural products will receive certification from Ecocert in mid 2008 and are already developed in accordance with its specifications. Contract manufacturing and services ​ In addition to its own products, the company operates as a contract manufacturer working from formulation and testing through to product production and packaging. It also offers consultancy services in marketing, packaging, raw materials intelligence and regulations.
