Business Update on COVID-19

Dear visitors,
We hope that you, your family and loved ones are all well.

The coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic is changing the world as we know it. People’s health and wellbeing are at the forefront of this crisis. This is why our paramount priority is to protect our colleagues, contractors, visitors and the communities in which we operate. We are doing our best to get through this unprecedented health crisis by taking necessary precautions to care for our colleagues around the world.


The BASF global, regional, country and site crisis management teams are meeting daily to further monitor the outbreak of COVID-19 and recommend the necessary mitigation measures. Our teams are all working hard to ensure business continuity and minimize the overall impact to business operations. We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of them for their outstanding work and dedication during these exceptional circumstances – and we would also like to genuinely thank all our customers for their understanding and cooperation during these times.

BASF Nutrition & Health status as essential business to critical infrastructure 

BASF Nutrition & Health fully supports the efforts of governments around the world to help contain the spread of COVID-19. These are important steps to combat the pandemic and help ensure the health of our society. We also recognize the important role we play in supporting critical infrastructures as defined by local authorities. The chemical industry has been deemed as an essential business to critical infrastructure in most of the countries where BASF Nutrition & Health operates. The confirmation of our products as essential to critical infrastructure varies from country to country. 

BASF Nutrition & Health production sites have been given exemption from shutdowns that are implemented in various countries. We are in contact with the local authorities when necessary to support the logistical continuity of customer supply.

As of January 27, 2021, we have no indications of a significant impact on global operations and supply chain of our BASF Nutrition & Health business, which comprises BASF Pharma Solutions, BASF Human Nutrition, BASF Animal Nutrition, BASF Aroma Ingredients and BASF Enzymes, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
