Company Description:

Lonza is the leader in the development and manufacture of active ingredients and intermediates for the rapidly growing life science industry (nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, foodstuffs).

Lonza is the world's largest manufacturer of L-Carnitine. Due to a unique manufacturing process, Lonza is the only manufacturer that guarantees 100% pure L-Carnitine, completely free of harmful D-Carnitine. The L-CARNIPURE[R] logo is a sign of this quality assurance.

The market favorite, L-Carnitine L-Tartrate, is the most stable and purest form of L-Carnitine available. L-Carnitine L-Tartrate is a white crystalline product that contains 68% L-Carnitine and 32% L-Tartaric acid (GRAS). L-Tartaric acid is the natural form of Tartaric acid. L-Carnitine L-Tartrate is non-hygroscopic, free flowing, has a pleasant citrus-like flavor and long term stability. Lonza developed and patented this stable form in order to better serve the needs of manufacturers of tablets/capsules (non-hygroscopic, free flowing) and of retailers/marketing companies (long-term stability).

Company headquarters are in Switzerland and production facilities and sales offices are located worldwide.
