Galen N company presentation

Our History


Galen-N Ltd. is a successor to the largest distillery for production of rose oil. Located in Zelenikovo village in the Plovdiv region of Bulgaria, it was launched back in 1957. The distillery concept was based on a French project and design.

In 1993, an innovative plant extraction facility for production of concretes and absolutes was launched. At that moment and for a long time after, it was the only installation of its kind in Bulgaria.

Galen-N Ltd. was founded in 2001 and quickly gained a leading position in the essential oils and natural phytochemical extracts market.

In 2006, the company acquired the production facilities in Zelenikovo. Our new production company – Bul Phyto Oils Plc – was founded. The investment allowed us to acquire not only production facilities but also invaluable long-standing experience and know-how.

In 2013, the new GMP-certified production facility was inaugurated. This investment allowed us to become the only Bulgarian producer that offers essential oils of a pharmaceutical quality.

In 2016, the new Organic distillery for production of Organic-certified products was opened.

In 2017, we opened our own laboratories to check and ensure the best possible quality.

In 2018, we opened our new extraction facility for production of concretes, absolutes and dry phytochemical extracts.

Our Present

Production plantOur modern manufacturing facility is GMP-certified for production of cosmetic ingredients and active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs). It has 95 m3 distillation and three extraction lines. Two of the installations are specially designed for production of concretes and absolutes.

In the last two years we have launched a new Organic distillery, modern laboratories and extraction units to meet the growing demand for Organic products and to ensure the best quality for our costumers.

Now, Galen-N is the biggest Bulgarian producer and supplier of essential oils – especially rose oil, with annual production of 600kg – APIs and dry extracts.

Our Future

Over 60 years of tradition and know-how in essential oils and natural extract production has been upgraded with modern production equipment and facilities. Our fully equipped modern research centre helps us in the development of new products and improvement of existing ones.

Our constantly increasing investments in crop plantations allow us to ensure the full traceability of our production process. Thus we can guarantee the permanent high quality of all our products, proved by certified laboratories according to international standards.

Galen-N Ltd has a long-term investment program in order to constantly ensure the highest quality products are received by our client. Galen-N is a leading producer and a reliable and trustworthy partner. We look forward to further developing our facilities and capabilities in the future.
