Another natural astaxanthin player is increasing its manufacturing capabilities with the announcement that Piveg, Inc.  a carotenoids manufacturer with business offices in San Diego, CA and production facilities in the central Mexican city of Celaya, will shortly be vertically integrated. “We have been in the natural carotenoids business since my father started the business in 1959,” Piveg CEO Roberto Espinoza told NutraIngredients-USA. “We have been operating under the Piveg name since 1986.” Long history in industry Piveg has had a long history of supplying carotenoids derived from marigolds in the animal feed and food additive industries and sells into the human nutrition markets, too. The company has marigold production in Mexico and in Peru, providing supply security in the event of a climate event, Espinosa said. Lately the company has entered into agreements to buy haematococcus pluvialis biomass to extract astaxanthin. But that will change soon as the company has a plan underway to produce its own algae via an open raceway system at an undisclosed site in central Mexico.  The central plateau is an ideal location for such a facility in that it has a mild climate with enough solar radiation to induce the algal cells to produce astaxanthin as a protective measure when they are stressed at the end of the production cycle. “In the astaxanthin business, you have the biomass production, the extraction and the final blending and marketing.  We already do the last two.  And...
