Nature’s own factory

Nature's own factory is the first Russian brand of products based on an exclusive variety of Tartary buckwheat. The company was founded in 2017.

The brand produces blends of buckwheat tea with fruits and healthy sweets with buckwheat seeds according to unique recipes. "With us, everything that’s healthy also becomes delicious," say the founders of the brand Seda Khunkaeva and Anna Khabarova.

Nature's own factory is the only brand in Russia that has proven the benefits of buckwheat tea clinically and received the RAS certificate of "Compliance of buckwheat tea with signs of clinical efficacy".
