Our story begins around the 1980s, in a small city in Albania. Everything started with the grandmother. She was providing homemade remedies for children suffering from infections, cold, flu, rheumatic pain, and other conditions. At this point, it was only a passion and a non-profit duty she would undertake for her community.
Soon after that, our founders, her son & daughter-in-law, Ylli & Leonora, thought that they needed a change in their career. They were both teachers and absolutely loved to enlighten the new generation. However, they noticed how fulfilling it was to alleviate these children from pain or discomfort. They thought of doing something greater with their life, so decided to pursue our grandmother’s path and advance to a different level. They devoted themselves to start a unique Herbal store in the 2000s, providing holistic combinations, absolutely unique at the time and right now in Albania. At this time, the founder, Ylli Merja, decided to pursue a PharmD program in Albania, which inspired him to formulate all of what we now provide to you: All our Wellness Herbal Products!
Late in the 2000s, the founders expanded their products with natural cosmetics. Thus, we were manufacturing herbal creams and herbal extracts composed 100% of natural ingredients.
By 2010, we expanded our presence in Albania, Kosovo and Europe significantly through the help of our distributors. The trust of our customers in our products has helped us grow our impact in Europe.
Now, Merja BioProducts is one of the biggest tea suppliers in Albania providing unique products and a unique service. We manufacture over 350 products, Proudly Made in Albania.
In 2019, we were enthusiastic to open our first store in NYC, Merja Herbs.
Today, we are happy to bring you the power of the Mediterranean herbs and serve you with all the questions on your health, providing consultation with our experts and doctors certified in Albania.
Our goal is to provide the best holistic care with natural and minimally processed products to best conserve natural values!
