Sub-Saharan Africa profits from new DSM plant
When DSM Nutritional Products’ existing blending facility threatened to reach its production capacity a few years ago a decision was made to invest in a new plant at their Isando head-office in Johannesburg. DSM transferred all of its premix production to this plant at the beginning of March 2009.
The commissioning of the new feed premix plant in Isando sees DSM Nutritional Products’ vision of having its human and animal nutrition divisions operating on a single site in South Africa realised. DSM hopes to capitalise on the synergies between these two closely related industries to maintain and grow its presence in the sub-Saharan region.
DSM Nutritional Products South Africa (Pty) Ltd is one of the largest suppliers of vitamins to the animal nutrition industry in sub-Saharan Africa and has been active in the blending and distribution of animal feed premixes in this region for the past ten years.
