About us


AFPI is dedicated to producing innovative foods and nutraceuticals made from 100% natural ingredients. Our ethos is to ensure everything we produce serves a healthy purpose. We achieve this by combining scientific knowledge with thousands of years of traditional health practices.

AFPI is well known for Mast Chew; a plant based, organic and sugar-free chewing gum. Our gum base is neither synthetic (petroleum) nor latex (chicle), rather it is extracted from Pistacia trees. Pistacia resin exhibits naturally occurring antimicrobial activity and has been used for hundreds of years throughout the Mediterranean to maintain gut health and treat stomach related illnesses. Our gum base is then sweetened with xylitol and naturally flavoured with essential mint oil. The combination of xylitol, mint and antimicrobial gum base cleanses the mouth and soothes the stomach. 

Our founder and CEO, Dr. Sharif Sharifi is known for his contribution to medical microbiology and the food/pharmaceutical industry in Kurdistan, Iran. He has applied his knowledge and experience to create a unique range of products that reflects the intrinsic relationship between food and science. Our current range of health foods and nutraceuticals reflects our dedication to innovation in health.
