Nacka (Sweden), March 2023 – AstaReal, the global pioneer in natural astaxanthin production and related research, has started a new partnership with raw material distributor C.F.M. Co. Farmaceutica Milanese SpA. From now on, nutraceutical producers in Italy who wish to include AstaReal® natural astaxanthin in their formulations will receive professional technical, regulatory, scientific and logistical support.

“We are delighted to introduce C.F.M. as distributor of our natural astaxanthin from the microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis in Italy, which is a significant part of our European market business,” says Peter Ahlm, Head of Marketing & Sales at AstaReal AB. With this new partnership, AstaReal has taken another step towards becoming the leading natural astaxanthin brand in Italy.

AstaReal chose its new partner wisely, as C.F.M. has more than 70 years of experience. The company distributes raw materials for pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and cosmetic industries, both in Italy and more than 50 other countries worldwide.

This partnership will help satisfy the growing market demand for natural astaxanthin. The antioxidant is gaining in popularity as an increasing number of scientific studies, mostly conducted using AstaReal® astaxanthin, provide evidence of its health benefits. Furthermore, the antioxidant is obtained from regrowing microalgae, which makes it a particularly environmentally sustainable ingredient.
