Healthy Eating has never tasted so Delicious!
Following a crisis caused by overproduction, the industry began seeking alternatives to using agave as the raw material solely for Tequila production. Following research and development, production plants for other agave-derived goods such as agave syrup, were soon designed and constructed. The first commercial efforts were made in October 2001. Nekutli began manufacturing organic agave syrup in 2002.
In 2005, Nekutli initiated biotechnology research and development to obtain two agave-derived soluble organic fibres, later trademarked Metlos® and Metlin®. The manufacturing plant was completed in 2008 and commercial production began the same year. Nekutli now has 10 years experience exporting bulk and bottled agave syrup and now has over 4 years experience exporting Metlos® and Metlin® in bulk.
