BASF's Formi® now under Addcon Nordic

BASF will transfer its Formi® feed additive business to Addcon Nordic AS. The move allows BASF's Nutrition Ingredients business to concentrate their respective activities more on the supply of liquid organic acids.

Formi® is solid potassium diformate synthesized from formic acid and is used in the pig farming industry. In recognition of its antimicrobial activity, Formi was authorized by the European Union in 2003 for use as an alternative to conventional in-feed antibiotics.

Formi has already been manufactured for BASF at Addcon's Porsgrunn (Norway) production site since 2002 and has been marketed by BASF's Nutrition Ingredients business so far. Full responsibility for global marketing and distribution of Formi will transfer to Addcon during the first quarter of 2008.
