Who We Are

BioAfrica are experts in manufacturing of distillation and process equipment from stainless steel and aluminium for rugged African conditions.

The BioAfrica team has 20 years experience in design, building and commissioning of distillation and extraction of chemical components from plants and any other medium.

We specialize in agricultural, pharmaceutical and industrial units. Together with our experienced workshop of boilermakers, welders and sheet-metal experts, BioAfrica's work is designed and built in-house to ensure all work is produced to German engineering standards.

BioAfrica is based in Heidelberg just outside Johannesburg in South Africa and has manufactured and commissioned distillation units worldwide from Estonia to Algeria to Germany.


Most people wishing to buy their new distillation equipment often consult engineers or manufactures of steel tanks or boiler makers and steam supply companies. Surely it would be wiser to purchase essential oil extraction equipment from a company like BioAfrica with years of experience and grow their own essential oils in large volumes.


As farmers BioAfrica realise that not all farms are equal and not all standard distillation equipment is suitable for everybody which is why BioAfrica also offer custom distillation equipment manufacturing to make sure you get the right equipment for your specialised needs and particular requirements. Contact us and our friendly and knowledgeable team will discuss your particular requirements for your essential oil distillation needs.

Essential Oils Extraction

BioAfrica produces essential oils and plant extracts to different markets from perfume to soft drinks. BioAfrica offer these quality oils to buyers and consumers from Chamomile to Yarrow. BioAfrica stringently uses only Carbon Dioxide Neutral extraction and is not reliant on fossil fuels or the electricity grid.


BioAfrica has been involved in farming for over 30 years starting with mainstream food crops and eventually moving fully into the leader in growing essential oils that we have become today. Through trial and experimentation and the combined experience of many farmers, BioAfrica have a wealth of knowledge that has benefited experienced and new farmers across the globe. Become part of our ever expanding growing family and start producing the oils that are the future of farming


We wouldn't be able to grow our plants without the help of our BioBees!
