Prulab is a vanilla laboratory performing Physico-chemical humidity and vanillin analysis of vanilla, which are important properties to measures the quality of vanilla beans, vanilla cuts and vanilla powder products.
The laboratory was founded in 2021 by Olivier Ratsimbaholison, an entrepreneur from Antananarivo with a degree in natural sciences. Prulab became the first independent vanilla laboratory in the region offering fast and accurate analysis for exporters and other vanilla operators in the SAVA region to determine the quality, price and market value of their products.
The service is also available to vanilla importers in others countries that need to have the quality of the vanilla they order quality tested and controlled before export from Madagascar. On request, Prulab will collect samples from the exporting companies and submit the test results to the vanilla buyer in the importing country.
The time to complete an analysis is approximately between one and two days and the cost for each sample analysis is 80,000 Ariary, which includes a certificate of vanillin and humidity contents.
Prulab is located in the centre of Sambava, which is the capital of vanilla production and indeed the world's leading supplier of natural vanilla. It is in Sambava, where most of the country's vanilla exporters are located.
