L'Occitane ups production capacity at Melvita

The Occitane group's bio-cosmetics company Melvita, based at Lagorce in the Ardeche region of southern France, has increased its production capacity with the construction of new units at an investment cost of 10m.

The new capacity will be in operation in 2010 and will enable the company to undertake a complete reorganisation of production to match a new strategy of internationalisation.

Melvita produces some 400 reference products comprising creams, shampoos, oils and toilet waters and has annual sales of about 30m of which over 90% are achieved in France.
