My story

What "We Make It Possible" means to me

We Make It Possible!

At DSM, we are tackling some of the biggest challenges facing society & the animal protein industry today.

We strongly believe in sustainable food systems. We are sure that the livestock industry can transform itself from within to be a part of the solution. We want to play a key role in this transformation and work at species and country level, with our partners, to provide tangible and actionable solutions to create brighter lives for all.

If not us, who?
If not now, when?

See what some of our employees have to say about their dedication to making this vision a reality.

Whether thinking back to what first brought them into animal nutrition & health, or looking forward to the evening’s discussion around the family dinner table, they know that they are part of a bigger world that is calling for positive change right now.

Sustainability was the first impression I had of DSM. My story with DSM can be traced back to three years ago. When waiting at the reception area for an job interview, I randomly picked a booklet from the bookshelf.

Christie Chavis | VP, ANH Specialty Solutions

As a young girl on my parent’s farm, it was one of my responsibilities to monitor the cows of our beef herd. In the morning, I would start by saddling my horse and riding the fence to ensure all was in order and none were out. Quick check of the water, hay and the animals to be sure everyone was OK...

Since I was a boy my dream and passion have been to work with animal farming. In order to be in touch with nature and also for having the possibility of using science in the field, I decided to pursue the veterinarian career..

African Swine Fever(ASF), a century old animal disease originated from Africa in 1921, now affects more than 40% of the global swine herd. It took only one year for the virus to spread across China and to reduce in half our swine inventory...

Jean-Paul Ruckebusch | ​​​​​​​Global Enzymes Business Lead

My grandfather was a farmer proud of his herd and respected by his neighbors. It looks like these times are gone but we can help today’s animal producers to be proud again of their efforts to feed the world...

Charlie Culley | ​​​​​​​HyD Global Lead

Growing up in North Carolina, one of the most prominent swine regions of the US, pigs were a way of life. My family never owned livestock, but my father was a swine veterinarian and our entire livelihood depended on the local swine industry...
