A major fire due to a technical issue on March 12 at a BASF plant in Germany will close the plant for a month or more and affect supply of vitamins A and E.

The company declared a ‘Force Majeure’ on vitamin A and Vitamin E products for human and animal nutrition, along with citrus-based aroma chemicals.

It said it would supply customers on a pro-rata basis while the situation at the Ludwigshafen plant was rectified.

The Force Majeure situation is not related to any product safety or quality issues,” ​it said.

“BASF will continuously inform customers about the development and the details regarding our supply capability with the affected products.”
