BASF to build world-scale vitamin A facility in Germany

LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY: To meet the growing demand of vitamin A in the market, BASF SE is planning to build a world-scale production facility in Ludwigshafen, Germany, which will increase the company’s annual capacity by 1500 metric tonnes and the facility is scheduled to run in 2020.

BASF is a global top producer of vitamin A for animal and human nutrition as well as the cosmetic industry. Reference value for this amount is vitamin A acetate with 2.8 million international units.

“We can make ideal use of our resources by fully integrating the new production facility into BASF’s Verbund production. This important investment also highlights the competitive position of the Ludwigshafen site,” said Michael Heinz, member of the board of executive directors, BASF SE.

“A new world-scale facility will enable us to even better support our customers’ growth plans with high supply consistency and higher product quality,” said Saori Dubourg, president BASF nutrition & health.
