Kaiseraugst (Switzerland), Maastricht (Netherlands), April 16, 2024

dsm-firmenich, innovators in nutrition, health and beauty, will showcase its full range of ingredients at Petfood Forum 2024 including the latest addition to the company’s portfolio, Veramaris® Pets – the world’s most powerful and complete omega-3 solution for cats and dogs. At stand 1306, attendees can also discover DHAgold™ alongside innovative taste ingredients and gut health-supporting nutrients, to help pet nutrition brands create food, treats and supplements that are good for pets, good for producers and good for the planet.

Ensuring the world’s access to omega-3s, sustainably 

Veramaris® Pets algal oil is the latest addition to dsm-firmenich’s petfood portfolio. Containing 60% eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) – the highest of any solution on the market – it delivers more than double the potency of equivalent fish-oil while also providing enhanced taste and stability benefits. 

Around 930 billion fish are removed from the oceans each year, just to supply the pet food industry with fish oil and meal.1 Veramaris® Pets aims to change this as an infinitely consistent and scalable source of omega-3 that does not rely on fish stocks. With Veramaris® Pets joining dsm-firmenich’s growing petfood portfolio, producers will benefit from the company’s worldwide team of experts, global supply chain and access to a leading range of nutritional and taste products.2

At Petfood Forum, dsm-firmenich will also showcase DHAgold™, which offers petfood brands even more versatility in DHA fortification. This easy-to-use powder is made from fermented algae and is scientifically proven to support brain health in dogs. In one study, a group of 8- to 11-year-old dogs were fed food containing DHAgold™ for 6 months and displayed significantly improved memory and visual performance.3

All bite, no bark

Additionally, at Petfood Forum 2024 dsm-firmenich will spotlight its flavor-enhancing solutions for improving the taste in petfood applications with a Cheddar cheese flavor concentrate. Made using genuine Wisconsin Cheddar cheese and whey, this versatile spray-dried powder helps producers craft irresistible food for dogs.

Petfood Forum 2024 attendees will also be able to learn more about Leva-Mos® – a convenient, spray-dried, prebiotic powder that supports healthy digestion, gastrointestinal health and immunity by stabilizing the gut microflora and strengthening intestinal barrier function in dogs.
