dsm-firmenich resumes animal grade Vitamin A production

Royal dsm-firmenich, a global purpose-led science-based company, confirms that it is resuming Rovimix® Vitamin A production in Sisseln, Switzerland.

In November 2022, the firm announced a temporary halt to Vitamin A production at the site.

The challenging cost environment cited in 2022 spans energy, raw materials and process material costs, continues in 2023.

Restarting production will allow dsm-firmenich to serve its loyal customers with animal nutrition premix solutions ahead of the shutdown for lifetime extension work planned for the Vitamin A line this summer.
