CHINA - DSM Nutritional Products is proud to announce the completion of its fifth feed premix plant in China. Located in the city of Chengdu, the capital of the province of Sichuan, the new plant has the biggest capacity of all DSM's feed premix plants in China.

The Chengdu plant marks the start of DSM's development plan in West China and further strengthens the company's overall strategy for the animal premix and feed market in China. DSM already operates four feed premix plants in Shanghai, Shandong Province, Hunan Province and Jilin Province.

In November 2010, DSM Nutritional Products signed an investment contract with Chengdu Modern Industrial Port to set up the new plant and established DSM Vitamins (Sichuan) Limited. The Chengdu plant, which was built in less than 10 months, has three complete production lines for all product types: macro premixes and vitamin concentrates marketed under the Rovimix brand. The capacity of the plant is designed to respond to the fast increasing consumer demand. It is carefully built to prevent cross-contamination between active ingredients and non-active ingredients and can provide fully traceable production of poultry, swine, aquaculture, ruminant and petfood premixes.

Nathan Bird, Vice President of DSM Nutritional Products China, said: "The completion of our fifth premix plant in China further strengthens DSM's leading role in the rapidly evolving Chinese animal nutrition & health industry. As an essential link in the food chain, premix has a key role to play in food safety and nutrition. DSM applies highest manufacturing, safety and environment (OVN – Optimal Vitamin Nutrition) standard to provide reliable, high-quality and innovative products to our customers. Our efforts are helping to speed up the sustainable development of the animal nutrition & health industry in China."

As the global leader in animal nutrition & health, DSM has always been committed to providing high-quality and safe products. The company implements a 'whole food chain' concept which guarantees safety and traceability 'from farm to fork'. DSM has extensive experience in managing product traceability along the entire food chain. From construction to inauguration, the Chengdu plant will – just like DSM's other plants – strictly adhere to DSM's advanced global standards for Safety, Health and Environment. This will ensure full compliance with heightened requirements regarding food safety, animal nutrition and feed quality in this industry.

Dr Weiming Jiang, President of DSM China, commented: "The opening of DSM's fifth feed premix plant in China gives me great pride. We have further optimised our premix network in this country and successfully grasped a market opportunity in China's fast-growing animal nutrition & health industry. This investment shows DSM's great commitment to China, one of the world’s high-growth economies. It also fully fits with our 2015 strategy, 'DSM in Motion: driving focused growth'."
