Global nutrition and animal health company DSM has opened its refurbished plant in Auckland.

The company says it is looking to expand and strengthen its New Zealand footprint, building on its established presence of at least 20 years. 

Powered by renewable electricity, the newly upgraded Auckland facility will further improve DSM’s resource efficacy, decreasing its emissions and sending a clear message on its commitment to using renewable energy, it says.

The facility will produce a range of sustainable and innovative nutritional compounds for a wide range of segments such as early life nutrition, food and beverage, sports nutrition and medical nutrition. 

The company aims to deepen its connection to its consumers in the Oceania region. The new plant serves as a catalyst for growth in Australia and New Zealand, reinforcing DSM’s ambitions for both countries. 

DSM says it draws on the latest science and technology to develop tailored solutions, leveraging its product portfolio and innovation capabilities to ensure customers extract maximum value from the solutions developed and produced locally.

Commenting on the opening, Leah Davey, general manager, Oceania DSM Nutritional Products, said, “We are proud to be walking the talk with our site run on renewable electricity”. 

“Our newly upgraded facility in Auckland will further advance the high quality standards in the production of our nutritional premix. 

“We will continue to front run the production of premixes with new and innovative ingredients, all of which will enable our customers and partners to deliver more innovative and sustainable solutions to tackle some of the toughest social and environmental challenges.”Apart from new blending and packing equipment, the facility also has improved layout and zoning, and floors with anti-microbial growth properties.
