AGHG’s organic aloe plantation bases were first established in 2000 in Guangdong Province and Hainan Province with a plantation area growing to up to 750 acres. All of our aloe plants are Aloe Vera Barbadensis Miller, the most beneficial of the Aloe Vera species, and were originally imported from Taxes in the United States. We currently have over 10 million mature aloe plants and our annual yield of fresh aloe leaves can exceed 30,000 tons. AGHG aloe plantation bases are one of the largest, most standardized and organically certified aloe farms in China.
