Royal DSM, a global science-based company active in nutrition, health and sustainable living, officially opened a new Animal Nutrition & Health premix plant in Baishazhou Industrial Park, Hengyang City, China.

The site is DSM’s second premix plant in Hunan Province and the seventh of its kind in China, underlining a deep commitment to the country, the company said in an announcement.

DSM said the new plant aims to meet increasing local demand for high-quality premix solutions and significantly expands DSM’s footprint in China. Featuring a range of cutting-edge smart technologies, the new Hengyang site will be one of the world’s leading premix plants, with an expected annual production of 120,000 metric tons.

Furthermore, this new facility brings together DSM’s advanced processes and innovative solutions to promote sustainable animal protein production in the Chinese market, the announcement said.

This is aligned with the new We Make it Possible strategic initiative DSM Animal Nutrition & Health recently launched to help meet growing global demand for animal protein while reducing the environmental footprint of animal farming. Its mission is to lead a robust and achievable worldwide transformation of the animal protein industry, enhancing sustainability and accelerating solutions that will foster a brighter future for everyone, DSM said.

DSM China president Joe Zhou said, “As a purpose-led global science company, DSM has been committed to growing with China since entering the market in 1963. Our customer-centric ethos and 'local for local' approach have played a key role in DSM’s success in China. The opening of our new Hengyang site is a vote for confidence for DSM’s long-term vision for the country.”

Justin Wang, vice president of DSM Animal Nutrition & Health Greater China, added, “The opening of our second premix site in Hengyang is built on DSM’s cooperation with many local partners. This world-class facility will help DSM better satisfy the evolving demands of the Chinese market and provide local customers with high-quality products. It will also boost DSM’s offering of innovative solutions to promote the development of sustainable animal husbandry.”

Cultivating industry talent

The opening of this new plant also marks the official launch of DSM Vitamins Academy, the company said, explaining that the academy will serve as a new platform to educate the market and share the latest scientific research and practices with players across the animal feed and husbandry value chain.

This collaborative initiative will promote industry understanding of the crucial role that vitamins play in animal proteins, helping to ensure a healthier and more sustainable future for all, DSM said.

DSM Vitamins Academy’s curriculum is expected to cover key areas from market trends and value systems to product performance and monitoring systems. DSM said it will bring in in-house experts and scientists as well as customers and scientific institutions for knowledge sharing as part of the curriculum design.
