DRT Purchases Crown Chemicals Shares

Posted: April 12, 2011

DRT (Cedex, France) announced its purchase of shares in Crown Chemicals, a specialized manufacturer of synthetic piperonal based in India. The investment solidifies DRT’s position on promoting responsible chemistry, as Crown Chemicals develops and manufactures synthetic piperonal as a way to eliminate the large amount of sassafrass trees being cut down each year to obtain sassafras oil, from which natural piperonal is made. Crown Chemicals is a subsidiary of Anthea Aromatics, which is also an Indian partner of DRT. Anthea Aromatics specializes in the production of ingredients for the flavor and fragrance industry.
