DSM has opened a new animal nutrition center in the Chinese town of Bazhou, south of Beijing. The China Animal Nutrition Center is focusing on swine and poultry nutrition and has the capability to conduct world-class scientific and application research.
With a special focus on enzymes, eubiotics and vitamins, the facility will support ongoing market development by enabling the application of DSM products to address the needs of local swine and poultry producers, the company says. It will also produce scientific data to support product and application development for use in global markets.
Dr Georg Kau, vice president of DSM Nutritional Products R&D comments: “The new facility is an important step forward in our strategy to provide specialized product development capabilities tailored for local requirements to customers across the world.
“Complementary to our existing research center in Europe, the new site allows us to perform feeding trials with a higher number of animals.”
