Ricola is a well-known brand of herb lozenges, with its roots in Switzerland. Founded in 1930 by Emil Richterich and two other pharmacists, Ricola has grown to become one of the largest manufacturers of dietary supplements and herbal teas in Europe. The company’s headquarters are located near Basel, Switzerland, and besides their European production facilities, they also have manufacturing facilities in North America. While most people associate Ricola with their Swiss herb drops (called “drops” because they dissolve quickly in your mouth), the company also produces a variety of teas as well.
Ricola’s popular Swiss-made drops use a blend of 13 herbs that grow only at very high altitudes – between 3,000 and 7,500 feet above sea level. The herbs are cultivated in various areas of Switzerland and imported to the company’s facility, where they are with glucose syrup and sugar to make up the lozenges.
