DSM to Increase Production Capacity of Vitamin B2 in Germany


Royal DSM, a global science-based company active in Nutrition, Health and Sustainable Living, will expand the production capacity of its Vitamin B2 facility in Grenzach, Germany, by 15%-20% to further strengthen DSM’s leadership position for this important vitamin.

 It is expected that the new capacity will be available in Q4 2019 after an extended shutdown of approximately two months for the necessary technical work.

 Vitamin B2, also called riboflavin, is an essential constituent of all living cells - which when lacking can lead to symptoms including fatigue and sore throats. It is one of the most widely distributed water-soluble vitamins. As part of its human and animal nutrition & health solutions portfolio, DSM supplies vitamin B2 as application-based formulation or as premix ingredient to the food, feed, pharma and dietary supplements markets.
