The Transformation of DSM

DSM is a major ingredients business with highly diversified interests. Between 2007 and 2010, DSM’s strategy was driven by the Vision 2010 programme and centred on transforming the company from a traditional chemical firm to a more forward-looking Life Sciences and Material Sciences group. The new strategy replacing Vision 2010 is “DSM in Motion – Driving Focused Growth”. Now that DSM has been adapted into a Life Sciences and Material Sciences group, the new plan is focused on pushing forward and maximising sustainable and profitable growth.

DSM Nutritional Products focuses specifically on health and nutrition markets so is well placed to cash in on continuing strength in both healthy eating and dietary supplementation. With the acquisitions of the two largest omega-3 fatty acids suppliers in North America in 2011 and 2012, DSM has become global market leader in this category, offering a complete range of omega-3 (DHA) and omega-6 (ARA) fatty acids from a variety of sources.
