About Phytomed

Phytomed was founded in 1998 by Phil Rasmussen, a highly respected medical herbalist and trained pharmacist, who continues to head the company as it has grown to become New Zealand's leading manufacturer of liquid herbal extracts.

For many years Phil has lectured in phytopharmacology for various colleges throughout New Zealand, and has written extensively for herbal and pharmacy publications in New Zealand, the UK and Australia. He also acts as a consultant to governmental agencies and academic institutions.

   Company Founder Phil Rasmussen
Phytomed’s roots are embedded in traditional herbal philosophy, combining this time honoured wisdom with the latest scientific research to produce herbal medicines of the highest quality and efficacy.

Phytomed produces a large range of herbal liquid extracts, capsules and dried herbs for practitioner dispensing, along with the popular Kiwiherb retail product range.  Kiwiherb family health products have been specially formulated for the retail market to make high quality herbal medicine available to all. 

In 2013, to accommodate the rapid growth of the company, Phytomed expanded into customised manufacturing premises in Avondale, Auckland.
