Basel, Schweiz, 18 July 2013 – On July 4th, the European Commission published Regulation EC No 642/2013 confirming the authorization of Niacin and Niacinamide as feed additives. Lonza has submitted its dossier for Niacin and Niacinamide in 2010. It has been reviewed by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and Niacin and Niacinamide are now reconfirmed to be authorized as feed additives for all animal species.
For more than 40 years, Lonza has been the global leader in vitamin B3 production specializing in both Niacin (nicotinic acid) and Niacinamide. Currently, Lonza operates three vitamin B3 plants in Europe and China. To support future growth initiatives, a new vitamin B3 manufacturing facility is under construction at Lonza’s cutting edge life-sciences campus in Nansha, China. As the world’s largest supplier of vitamin B3 to the global feed and food industry, Lonza has always been at the forefront of regulatory compliance and quality.
Lonza’s commitment to the global feed industry is the same today as it was in 1971: to be the global leader in vitamin B3 production. Over the past four decades, we have invested to align production with market, environmental and quality demands to guarantee that we can serve our customers’ ever growing and changing needs.
