DSM has opened its first animal nutrition and health premix plant in India, located in Ambernath, Mumbai.

The new facility allows the company to directly provide products and solutions and concepts to its customers in India. This enables DSM to capitalize on opportunities that arise from rapidly developing animal nutrition and health industries in one of the world’s key growth countries; India is emerging as a global livestock production center, currently ranked fifth as a broiler producer and fourth as an egg producer, according to DSM. 

“As a very important link in the food chain, feed premixes for animal nutrition and health are of great importance for ensuring food safety and nutrition to all," said Antonio-Ruy Freire, president of animal nutrition and health. "This investment is fully in line with our strategy which, among others, aims at sustainable development in the high-growth economies. Targeting India’s large market, we continue to strengthen our footprint and support the country in accelerating the development of its animal nutrition and health industry with new technologies and products.”
