DSM Nutritional Products has opened its third premix plant in China to capitalise on increasing opportunities from the rapidly growing animal nutrition & health industry.
The new plant allows DSM to serve a larger geographical area in China, and is located in the Hengyang High-tech Zone in the Hunan Province. It will provide DSM-customers in the provinces of Hunan, Guangdon, Guangxi, Fujian and Jiangxi with feed premix under the brand name Rovimix.
DSM opened its first Chinese premix plant in 1997 in the Shanghai area. In 2006, the second premix plant was opened in the Shandong province. The fourth plant is expected to open next year in the Jilin province. Currently options for further expansion into Western China are investigated, with the intention to be operational by 2010.
DSM Nutritional Products is a supplier of vitamins, carotenoids and other fine chemicals to the feed, food, pharmaceutical and personal care industries.
