Royal DSM, a global science-based company active in health, nutrition and materials, announces it has acquired BioCare Copenhagen A/S, based in Copenhagen (Denmark).

BioCare Copenhagen is a privately-held company founded in 2012, focused on probiotics and specialized in microbial actives with proven health benefits, targeting gastrointestinal disorders, metabolic disorders, infections, and immunity. The company offers high-quality white label probiotic supplements and complete product concepts with strong consumer appeal.

DSM already has a strong position in gut health solutions with its Culturelle® product range, the number-one-selling probiotic dietary supplement consumer brand globally, as well as with its ingredient brands Oatwell® and Tolerase®. The company sees further growth potential in gut health ingredients beyond the established indications for digestive health and immune health. Fields increasingly recognized as being impacted by the gut microbiome include the gut-brain axis, metabolic health and heart health. DSM’s ambition in addressing the gut microbiome and its portfolio of nutritional ingredients are very synergetic with BioCare Copenhagen’s approach and products, and the combination is well-catered to address the existing and emerging gut health areas.
