Solvay to increase prices of Rhodiarome® ethyl-vanillin by 15%
Ethyl-vanillin prices have consistently decreased in the last years while raw material, energy and labour costs have steadily and continuously escalated.
This price increase is absolutely essential to guarantee a continued high level of quality and services everywhere in the world, close to all markets and customers.
Ethyl-vanillin is a key growing ingredient for food, flavors and fragrances, thanks to its highly competitive usage value and properties.
Designing vanilla flavors since 1884, Solvay Aroma Performance was the first to synthetize and produce the vanillin molecule on an industrial scale. Solvay is the only producer mastering the whole manufacturing chain — from Catechol to its historic flagship brands Rhovanil® and Rhodiarome®. The Aroma Performance business unit operates facilities in Saint-Fons (France, Baton Rouge (USA) and soon in Zhenjiang (China).
