Who are we?

Coesam Scandinavia was founded in 2004 by two molecular biologists, Monica Takamiya Wik and Peter Kristoffersen with the goal to bring a range of high quality organic rosehip products to the European market. The key to achieve this goal has been the organic rosehip plantation Santa Magdalena in the South of Chile. From this plantation we harvest standardized and high quality rosehip fruits of the special variety of the dog rose, named Rosa canina AP-4.

We launched Coesam AP-4 Rosehip powder on the Danish market in 2005. Today Coesam Scandinavia is both manufacturer and distributer of organic rosehip products for both the human and the veterinarian markets, all based on the AP-4 variety. Our products are present in more than 10 European markets, and we are expanding our activities in Europe and other countries.

Our mission

Coesam is continuously increasing the plantings of AP-4 rosehips.

In 2012 the first local Mapuche indigenous people started the cultivation of one family – one hectar plantations of AP-4 rosehips in collaboration with Coesam Chile. Read more about the Mapuche development project.

Coesam Scandinavia is also distributor of a food supplement made from Maqui berry (Aristotelia chilensis), a novel super fruit from Patagonia in the South of Chile.

A freeze-dried powder is made from the deep blue anthocyanin-rich maqui berries.

We follow all the way

We follow the AP-4 rosehips all the way from harvesting in Chile until the finished products are delivered to our clients.

We visit the Coesam rosehip plantation every year during the harvesting season to follow the harvest and the drying procedure.

The Coesam Rosehip powder is manufactured freshly from month to month at ISO-9001:2008 certified facilities in Germany. The finished products are packed in Germany and Denmark.
