FMC BioPolymer to raise prices globally

November 29, 2012

FMC BioPolymer, a business unit of FMC Corp., is increasing its global prices on microcrystalline cellulose, carrageenan, alginate products, and other gums up to 15% or as contract terms permit in food, personal care, and other market segments.

“Each year we dedicate significant resources to identifying and implementing productivity improvements to reduce the impact of rising raw material and other input costs,” said Mary T. Clarke, General Manager, Food Ingredients. “However, continued cost increases in raw materials and energy make this pricing action necessary.”
