DSM Nutritional Products has completed its fifth feed premix plant in China. Located in the city of Chengdu, the capital of the province of Sichuan, the new plant has the biggest capacity of all DSM’s feed premix plants in China.
The Chengdu plant marks the start of DSM’s development plan in West China and further strengthens the company’s overall strategy for the animal premix and feed market in China. DSM already operates four feed premix plants in Shanghai, Shandong Province, Hunan Province and Jilin Province.
In November 2010, DSM Nutritional Products signed an investment contract with Chengdu Modern Industrial Port to set up the new plant and established DSM Vitamins (Sichuan) Limited. The Chengdu plant, which was built in less than 10 months, has three complete production lines for all product types: macro premixes and vitamin concentrates marketed under the Rovimix® brand. The capacity of the plant is designed to respond to the fast increasing consumer demand. It is carefully built to prevent cross-contamination between active ingredients and non-active ingredients and can provide fully traceable production of poultry, swine, aquaculture, ruminant and petfood premixes.
From construction to inauguration, the Chengdu plant will – just like DSM’s other plants – strictly adhere to DSM’s advanced global standards for Safety, Health and Environment. This will ensure full compliance with heightened requirements regarding food safety, animal nutrition and feed quality in this industry.
