An inspiring career

Born in Genk and educated at the University of Liège, Fouzia Oukacha initially began her career in biochemistry. However, her entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to healthy eating led her down a less traditional path. She travelled throughout Morocco, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Turkey, searching for the best organic pomegranate trees. This quest was not only professional but also personal, part of a family tradition. His mother was a nurse with a passion for healthy nutrition, while his grandmother and great-grandmother were both phytotherapists, passionate about phytotherapy (the use of plant extracts to treat illness) and naturopathy (promoting healthy lifestyles and using natural methods to support well-being).

More than a brand, a mission: antioxidant nutrition

Granaline is not just a company; it's a reflection of its passion for preventive, antioxidant nutrition. Its products, including pure organic pomegranate juice with no additives and no added sugar, are rich in antioxidants, offering multiple health benefits. As well as juices, Granaline also offers organic sparkling drinks, PDO and PGI citrus teas from Sicily, and unique 'Positive Mood' food supplements made with saffron extracts and pomegranate juice.
