DSM Integrated Annual Report 2022

About Food & Beverage

Highlights 2022

At the start of the year, we introduced our new integrated Food & Beverage operating structure, which unified the former Food Specialties, Hydrocolloids and elements of the Nutritional Products Business Groups into a single, focused Business Group. This strategic decision allowed us to bring together our full range of ingredients, expertise and sustainable solutions that improve taste, texture and health into a one-stop-shop ‘powerhouse’ organization serving producers of consumer packaged goods.

With this unified approach, Food & Beverage supports its customers to innovate, improve and grow with stand-out food and beverage products across dairy (fresh dairy, cheese and plant-based); bakery, cereals and bars; savory foods; beverages and brewing; confectionery and fruit; plant-based meat and fish alternatives; and in petfood. Our ingredients and solutions are widely used to create a broad range of food products, from grocery favorites such as cereals, yogurt, cheese and soups to specialized products. These include gluten-free bread and beer, plant-based meat and dairy alternatives, lactose-free milk and dairy products, sports and performance nutrition, and sugar-reduced foods and beverages.

We have more than 150 years’ experience in biosciences and fermentation, and draw additionally on DSM’s portfolio of solutions for taste, texture and health. We help food and beverage manufacturers better support the health of people and planet, lowering the environmental impact of food production while also boosting the nutritional value of their products.

Biosciences are any of the sciences that deal with living organisms.
