Europe: BASF expands plant for higher Vitamin A production

BASF increases its production capacities for vitamin A by 25% by expanding an existing plant in Ludwigshafen, Germany, which is part of BASF’s Citral Verbund.

With this capacity extension, the company reacted to the rising demand for its vitamin A products, as well as to the global market growth.

Additional capacities are available immediately.

Vitamin A is an essential and fat-soluble micronutrient.

It is used by the human and animal nutrition industries in feed and food products, and also by the personal care sector.

Vitamin A supports, for example, the function of the eyes, lungs and skin.

It also helps to prevent growth disorders and supports skeletal development.
