Transitioning for a sustainable future

As a purpose-led company, for years, dsm-firmenich has supplied science-based products, services and groundbreaking innovation fundamental to the health, well-being and sustainability of farm animals. 

With growing demand for sustainable animal protein that is safe, nutritious and affordable, we’re helping the industry transition to a more sustainable future to meet this complex challenge.


An end-to-end portfolio

Through our 3 business lines, we’re able to offer our customers a true end-to-end portfolio of products, solutions and services for sustainable and profitable animal farming.


High quality vitamins, premixes and carotenoids

Essential nutrition is fundamental to the production of healthy, sustainable animal protein. Our Essential Products provide vital nutrients for the healthy growth and development of farm animals — delivered to the customer in the most flexible, tailored way.

Vitamins for animal health and performance
Vitamins contribute to both well-being and performance. With more than 100 years’ experience, we offer the world’s largest portfolio of trusted animal nutrition products.

Premixes customized for your needs
Our premixes are customized blends of functional ingredients – vitamins, minerals, amino acids, carotenoids, nucleotides, eubiotics, enzymes, mycotoxin deactivators and more – delivered to you in a single, homogenous compound.

Carotenoids for product quality
Carotenoids play a key role in animal health and reproduction, while helping ensure product quality, meet consumer expectations, and prevent food waste.

OVN Optimum Vitamin Nutrition®
Our OVN Optimum Vitamin Nutrition® is about feeding animals with high quality vitamins, produced with the lowest environmental footprint, in the right amounts, appropriate to their life stage and growing conditions, to optimize animal health and welfare, animal performance and food quality & food waste.

Vitamin Academy
The Vitamin Academy is a new platform for those in the feed industry to explore the benefits of vitamins and how to use them. Through classes, webinars, videos and other exclusive content, global experts will share the latest research as well as on-the-ground experience.


Offering advanced performance, health and nutrition solutions

Our Performance Solutions + BIOMIN® are designed to improve the sustainability and profitability of animal farming. Our broad portfolio delivers the level of functional nutrition needed for the industry to meet the challenges of sustainability, animal welfare and feed quality. We are proud to welcome BIOMIN® — a global leader in nutritional science and mycotoxin deactivators— to the dsm-firmenich family.

Enzymes unlock nutrient potential
Our feed enzyme portfolio enhances the wellbeing and performance of livestock by unlocking nutrient potential in feed and lower feed costs.

Mycotoxin deactivation
We harness the power of science to support all aspects of animal health and performance. With our BIOMIN portfolio, we are world leaders in advanced mycotoxin risk management techniques, including mycotoxin detection and mycotoxin deactivation.

Eubiotics in balance
Our range of eubiotics delivers an optimal balance of microflora to promote efficient gut performance, ensuring that animals get the most from their feed.

Ensuring adequate 25OHD3 level in blood serum
Sub-optimal Vitamin D3 levels in husbandry species such as poultry, swine and ruminants comprises animal health and reduces performance which leads to negative impacts on operating margins for animal protein producers. Our vitamin D3 dietary supplement Hy-D® ensures that optimal levels of Vitamin D3 are provided through the diet.

Greater precision in animal farming is key to a more sustainable and profitable future. Our Precision Services use the latest data analytics and diagnostics to improve animal health, lifetime performance, resource use and environmental footprint — while mitigating risks and unlocking more value.

Improve animal sustainability
Our global sustainability service, Sustell™, allows farmers to measure their actual environmental footprint and identify the best possibilities to improve, and providing advice and practical solutions for implementation.

Improve animal health
Our animal health management service, Verax™, uses the power of diagnostics to enable farmers to adjust feeding regimes and optimize their animals’ health, productivity, and welfare by providing evidence-based recommendations for better nutrition and performance.
