January 11, 2011
Dishman Netherlands (Vitamins & Chemicals) announced recently their intentions to produce, market, and sell Vitamin D3 for the animal feed, pharmaceutical, and food markets during 2011, from their new facility in India which is currently being completed. All Products from this facility will be GMP + certified. Existing Vitamin D products from Dishman Netherlands include Cholecalciferol, Vitamin D3 resin, Dohyfral D3 2000AG
(vitamin D3 in oil) and Ergocalciferol.
The new products from Dishman Netherlands will include Dishman D3 500,000IU for use in the animal feed market worldwide, Dishman D3 100,000IU for the food market, and also other Vitamin D3 products in oil. The new Dishman D3-500 grade will provide a high quality D3-500 to meet the growing demand in the marketplace.
The history of Vitamin D production at Dishman Netherlands can be traced back to the 1920s and the invention of the process to produce vitamin D2 and thereafter in 1946 when the production of Vitamin D3 began.
This agreement strengthens Dishman Netherlands’ position as a leader in the manufacture and sales of Vitamin D3 in the North American market; particularly the animal feed market with Dishman D3-500. “Charles Bowman and Company was a natural choice fro us as they have worked with Dishman Netherlands for many years with our Vitamin D
products and Cholesterol,” stated Rodney Fox, International Sales and Marketing Director of Dishman Netherlands. “They bring not only an understanding of our operations but also considerable experience in the areas of marketing and distribution of vitamins and nutrition ingredients to the feed, food, and pharmaceutical markets.”
