EXPERTISE

Scientific and in-field testing

Stoak has been researching and testing its natural extracts for over 15 years, developing highly precise biotech extraction processes that are both natural and highly effective in isolating the core congeners and active ingredients that can transform food and beverage products.

MODERN FOOD SOLUTIONS

Customer and regulatory demands on the food and beverage industries are dynamic and challenging. Demands for healthier, more natural and non-synthetic solutions place an increasing burden on companies to innovate and continuously develop new solutions to meet changing demand.

Stoak has been working together with food industry clients for many years in creating new and innovative applications our oak wood extracts. We have applied our technology to a wide range of industries where clients have been looking for unique solutions to problems traditional approaches have simply been unable to solve.

AN INVESTMENT IN THE FUTURE

Stoak has invested in extensive technology, raw materials and infrastructure to ensure that the products we sell meet the ethos of purity and preservation. We believe that the food and beverages we consume should be as close to as nature intended. For this reason all our our raw materials are sustainable and responsibly farmed and maintained.

Similarly our production process does not make use of any chemicals or non-natural ingredients, our process of extraction whilst complex is designed entirely around the single objective of being sustainable, sensitive and natural absent of all synthetic or unnatural inputs and processes.

We regularly meet with our suppliers to ensure that our quality chain of inputs is maintained such that we can continue to assure our clients and their customers of the highest quality natural extracts and solutions.

QUALITY STANDARDS AND PRACTICES

We have a focus on quality standards across our organisation, this is imbedded in our processes, our attitudes and our certifications.

Full food standards compliance and track and trace throughout or processes are of critical importance as is the assay and analysis of each and every batch produced.

We work hand in hand with our global distribution partners and clients to ensure that this is maintained right throughout the supply chain into the final food or beverage product, this provides our customers with the piece of mind that using or product set brings.
