BASF lifts force majeure for citral plant

BASF announced that it is lifting "force majeure" declaration for citral-based vitamin A and E products for human and animal nutrition.

BASF announced April 15 that it is lifting its declaration of "force majeure" with respect to citral-based aroma chemicals as well as vitamin A and vitamin E products for human and animal nutrition.

BASF said its citral plant had to be shut down after a fire on March 12, and the company consequently had to declare force majeure. BASF was able to stay within the announced shut-down period of four weeks starting March 19.

Product supply will normalize within the framework of delivery lead times and respective inventory levels, BASF said.
