Aroma ingredients

BASF is one of the leading producers and suppliers of aroma ingredients such as Geraniol, Citronellol, and Linalool, which are part of BASF’s Citral value chain.

In 2012 we expanded our value chain by starting up the production of L-menthol in our plant in Ludwigshafen, Germany. Currently, we are starting up a new aroma ingredients complex in Kuantan, Malaysia at BASF PETRONAS Chemicals, a joint venture with PETRONAS Chemicals Group. This is the most important milestone to meet our customers’ needs all around the world.

We are convinced that the way to achieve the best results is to be passionate about what we do – we share this passion with our customers from the flavor and fragrance industry. With our expertise, deeply-rooted in our long tradition, we want to support our customers’ ambitious projects by adding tangible value to the products they create. We work every day to realize our vision as we use our passion and technical know-how to help you realize your most creative ideas.
