AHLEN, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Europe's most modern Aloe vera production site was opened on 9 February 2018 in Ahlen. LR Health & Beauty has been developing and producing Aloe vera products for over 15 years. Processing approximately 12,000 tons of Aloe vera leaves, the internationally operating network marketing company is one of the largest manufacturers of Aloe vera products worldwide. The building at the company's headquarters in Ahlen, where LR Aloe Vera Drinking Gels are going to be produced, was completed in less than a year.
