Solvay doubles production capacity of a vanillin variant

Solvay is spearheading the switch to natural vanillin alternatives to satisfy the growing demand for true-to-nature products. To achieve this, Solvay has doubled its production capacity of Rhovanil Natural Crystal White (CW) capacity to reach 120 t.

Solvay’s Rhovanil Natural CW offers the advantages of non-GMO products, derived from a unique bio-conversion process from natural ferulic acid. It is compliant with the European natural flavouring Regulation (EC) No 1334/2008 and can be labelled as Natural flavouring or Natural Vanillin.

“At Solvay, we are committed to supporting the switch to natural ingredients,” said Peter Browning, President of Solvay’s Aroma Performance global business unit (GBU). “By doubling the production capacity of Rhovanil Natural CW and aligning our production process with the National Organic Program requirements in the United States, we are responding to our customers’ global long-term natural growth needs. It also reflects Solvay’s environmental and socially conscious practices”.

Rhovanil Natural CW has a typical pure, sweet, long-lasting vanillin profile, key to formulating competitive and consistent natural flavours. Approved and used in a wide range of well-loved food brands, it is a global solution for sustainable products.
