DSM Hikes Vitamin A, B2, B6, and E Prices

The company says the price hike is due to a combination of increased costs in securing raw-material supply, and inflation and exchange rate developments in recent months.

DSM Nutritional Products (Basel, Switzerland) has raised prices worldwide for new orders of several of its ingredients for animal and human nutrition.

The price of all vitamin B2 and B6 forms is now effectively 15% higher for all new business. Meanwhile, all vitamin E and A forms and Calpan, a spray-dried calcium D-pantothenate ingredient for animal nutrition, will increase between 5 to 10% for all new orders.
