DSM opens extended manufacturing facility in Poland


With the addition of four dedicated premix production lines, the facility will help meet growing demand for a reliable and faster supply of premixes

Royal DSM, a nutrition, health and sustainable living company, has opened Buk2, its extended premix manufacturing facility in Buk, Poland. The plant will enable DSM to increase its production capacity and efficiency, it says, while upholding safety and reliability requirements. The Buk2site will be used to manufacture premixes for early life nutrition, as well as being equipped to serve customers in the medical nutrition and nutrition improvement end markets.

With the addition of four dedicated premix production lines, Buk2 will help meet growing demand for a reliable and faster supply of premixes, specifically for consumers who require special care. The facility will allow the company to bolster its specialist premix capabilities, using technology to develop tailored formulas for challenging applications. Located to serve markets across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, the site is aimed to provide an enhanced level of end-to-end customer support.

“The demand for tailored nutritional premix solutions for consumers requiring special care – such as medical nutrition for patients, immunity products for elderly consumers, as well as specialized nutrition for infants and young children in Europe, Middle East and Africa – has reached new heights in recent years. Meeting the specific needs of our customers in these markets requires not only a deep understanding of nutritional science, but also the state-of-the-art production facilities that the extended Buk2 site will provide,” said André Rhoen, VP EMEA at DSM.

“We built Buk2 to enable us to continue to partner with customers to create high-quality, customised products with purpose – even under the most stringent regulations – from concept to consumer. As a global leader in premix production, this is an important step in our journey to providing the right nutrients that every generation needs for a healthier, brighter future,” said Philip Eykerman, President Human Nutrition & Health at DSM.
