Solvay gets vanillin certification

Solvay Aroma Performance has acquired what the company says is the best-in-class Food Safety System Certification (FSSC) 22000 for its Zhenjiang production site in China which manufactures its vanillin range, Rhovanil. The certification was obtained only a few months after the start-up of the Rhovanil production in Zhenjiang.

"We have a unique, fully back-integrated and sustainable global industrial vanillin manufacturing platform. Solvay is the only producer with 3 production units in 3 continents: France, USA, and China, to ensure we meet our customers’ needs, either global or local," said Liu Yang, Asia Industrial platform Director.

“This recognition of our ability to ensure risk control throughout the globality of our product value chain confirms our strong focus on food safety, particularly with regard to traceability, which is the main concern in the vanillin industry,” confirms Christophe Gas, Worldwide Business Director.

The company has held the FSSC 22000 Food Safety System Certification since 2011 for its production of vanillin and ethyl-vanillin in Baton Rouge (USA) and Saint-Fons (France) and its manufacturing of natural vanillin in Melle (France) in 2014.

The production process of vanillin is key for the product quality and its final applications, the company notes. Solvay Aroma Performance says it ensures full traceability, food safety and quality consistency to both professionals and consumers.
