Royal DSM Opens New Animal Feed Premix Plant in India

Dutch health and nutrition solutions firm Royal DSM announced the opening of a new premix facility in Jadcherla, India on Monday that will provide tailor-made products to local customers. 

Operated by the company’s Animal Nutrition & Health unit, the plant contains new safety, health, and environment compliance systems and includes room for future expansions. The company initiated plans to open the new plant after conducting years of research and analysis on the Indian market, according to a DSM press release. 

“The opening of this premix facility in India underlies our commitment to meeting the global feed industry’s need for innovative and sustainable solutions through continuing investments in our production footprint to support the growing markets,” DSM President of Animal Nutrition & Health David Blakemore said in a statement. “The plant is an example of DSM’s growing global presence, and its commitment to drive innovation building on its wealth of resources and capabilities and extensive understanding of customers’ need both in the country and globally.”

DSM’s new 120,000-sq-ft plant will produce vitamin-enriched feed supplements for the poultry, aquaculture and dairy markets, according a report by Indian news publication Telangana Today. It is the second Animal Nutrition & Health plant the company has opened in India. 

“India is one of the world’s largest and fastest growing economies. We see strong potential for growth in the animal premix industry. The Jadcherla plant shows our willingness to support further development as it gives us far greater geographic reach and increases our production capacity to meet the growing industry demands,” Ravindra Vyawahare, business unit director for South Asia for DSM’s Animal Nutrition & Health, said in the release. 

The company did not offer any specifics on the plant’s capacity or capabilities, and did not provide details on how much it invested in the project.
