DSM Purchases Dairy Solutions Firm Royal CSK

Dutch health and nutrition products manufacturer Royal DSM wrapped up its purchase of specialty dairy solutions firm Koninklijke CSK Food Enrichment C.V. (CSK) on December 30, a recent company press release announced. The price of the transaction was €150 million (about $165.5 million) in cash.

“The highly complementary combination of DSM’s dairy business and CSK’s business greatly strengthens DSM’s ability to serve the needs of dairy industries worldwide, and makes the company well-placed to address the fast-growing and attractive dairy cultures markets” Royal DSM said in a release.

Plans for the acquisition were first announced in mid-November. DSM said the deal expands its portfolio of products, including taste, texture, and bio-preservation solutions for semi-hard cheeses like Gouda and Edam. Under the terms of the transaction, DSM will take on CSK’s dairy application center and a fermentation facility in the Netherlands 

CSK brought in net sales of €65 million during 2018. The firm employs about 180 workers across its footprint.
