About DSM Nutrition

Our Nutrition business comprises DSM Nutritional Products and DSM Food Specialties. This cluster provides solutions that benefit the health of people and the health of the planet. We are active across a wide range of sectors: animal nutrition & health, food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, medical nutrition, early life nutrition, nutrition improvement, dietary supplements, personalized nutrition and personal care.

We cover all stages of the associated value chains, producing pure active ingredients, incorporating them into sophisticated forms and providing tailored premixes, functional solutions and branded consumer products. Our unique portfolio of products and services is global and highly diversified, serving customers and other stakeholders locally across an extensive range of end-markets worldwide.

With our ‘global products, local solutions’ business model, we have successfully built a broad, highly integrated and profitable growth business. We are expanding our business model with leading precision & personalization propositions. More detail on our business model can be found in Strategy.

On 1 January 2022, we reorganized our Nutrition business into three market-focused Business Groups: Food & Beverage, Health, Nutrition & Care and Animal Nutrition & Health. These underpin our transformation to a Health, Nutrition & Bioscience company as announced in September 2021. At the same time as announcing these changes, we also announced a series of new quantifiable Food System Commitments. These underpin DSM’s overarching commitment to meaningfully contribute to Health for People, Health for the Planet and Healthy Livelihoods and span all three new Business Groups. Through investment in our (bio)science-based innovations, extensive partnerships, and advocacy activities, we aim to help deliver change to ensure accessible, affordable, healthy nutrition and healthy livelihoods within planetary boundaries.
