Ricola supports Tor des Géants 

Tor des Géants is an important race set in Aosta Valley; it was created  for promoting  an healthy and rigorous sportsmanship. Ricola, swiss company leader in the production of herbal specialties,  shares the same values of Tor des Géants and wants to participate at this important event.

Ricola’s brand is characterized by the strict link to the territory and to the traditions of the firm: a modern, innovative firm but strictly linked to its roots. The receipt of Ricola is clear : love for the environment, strict quality control and only natural ingredients. Ricola is also famous for its blend made of 13 herbs (Burnet, Speedwel, Mallow, Peppermint, Yarrow, Sage, Marshmallow, Horehound, Lady’s Mantle, Plantain, Elder, Cowslip, Thyme) which was created more than 70 years ago by Emil Richterich and is still kept top secret; this blend is still used in all Ricola products. 

Herbs are coltivated in Swiss Alps  with  organic farming methods and with the aid of mainly manual labor (without pesticides). 

A wide range of tastes and formats: including the famous sugar crystals - with their particular shape (availables in bags and in tins)- and 11 sugar free tastes available in 50 g boxes: Herbs, Lemon Mint, Orange Mint, Blackcurrant, Menthol, Elderflower, Sanddorn, Alpin Fresh, Eucaliptus, Licorice, Mountain Mint.
