For over 80 years, vitamins have been at the heart of our business, and our portfolio is deeply rooted in quality, safety and transparency. As well as being the first company to synthesize and produce vitamins A, D, E and K, we are pioneers in the production of vitamin C and B vitamins and continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible with vitamin technologies.
Going beyond ‘good enough’ takes more than just ingredients. It takes an end-to-end partner who can support you across your entire product development process - from concept to consumer. Our unmatched expert services enable you to push the boundaries of discovery, innovation and commercialization – backed by unique and patented production methods, products and forms.

Our sustainability experts continually reevaluate our entire production and supply chain to explore new ways to reduce our environmental impact - as a result we’re proud to offer a selection of vitamins with the lowest carbon footprint available 1. We also took first place in the Sustainability and Circular Economy category at the US-based Manufacturing Leadership Council’s 2023 Manufacturing Leadership Awards.
