The acquisition of Alban Muller enhances Croda’s position as a world leader in natural and botanical actives, helping us meet the increasing demand from customers looking for ingredients of natural origin to improve the sustainability profile of their products.” 

Monsieur Alban Muller added: “I am pleased to pass on the baton to Croda to further expand the eco responsible approach I have advocated for so many years. Croda is the ideal partner to increase the growth of natural products, enhancing our expertise and giving us access to new markets. I am sure the combination will drive future developments in natural ingredients that will be very beneficial for consumers.”
