Cognis has completed the sale of botanicals extracts business to Burgundy Botanical Extracts Iberia, S.A. Burgundy, which is headquartered in Reyssouze, France, specializes in botanical extracts using solvent extraction. It is owned by Cristal Union Group and Holding Financière Maconnaise (HFM).

Cognis’ botanicals extracts business, which operates two production sites in Spain, generated sales of approximately €9 million in 2007.
