A Kiwi Original - Phil Rasmussen - Phytomed - Episode 87

This week I'm joined by Phil Rasmussen from Kiwiherb, a Phytomed company brand. Phil is an experienced herbalist with more qualifications than letters in the alphabet. His decade as a pharmacist led him towards the magical world of plants where Phytomed have been making a range of herbal medicines for health practitioners since the late 90's. We also talk about the export barriers that New Zealand's absence of world class regulations causes and why Phytomed works actively with achieving certifications recognised overseas. Listen to the story to hear why New Zealand might have an advantage in growing herbs, what Phil learned growing up on the East Coast of the North Island of New Zealand.
