The company will unify three areas of nutrition business: food specialty, hydrocolloids, and a portion of its nutritional products group. According to the supplier, this will “closely align” the company’s structure with market and emerging customer needs. The new F&B organization combines DSM’s entire range of food and beverage ingredients, as well as expertise and science-based texture and taste solutions. The new F&B company will help consumers “enjoy it all” without having to choose between texture, taste and health. The company announced that this will be the foundation of a new campaign.
Responding to ‘new pressures’ on producers
DSM said that the global food sector is set to continue to grow as the world’s population increases. The Dutch company stated that this puts ‘new pressures on producers’ in an ‘already competive space’. Food businesses must innovate and get to market quickly.
DSM is a one-stop shop for ingredients, solutions, and end-to–end capabilities that will allow food and beverage companies around the world to accelerate product development and produce efficient products. The industry faces many challenges, not just the need to reduce innovation pipelines. DSM pointed out that the food industry is “converging” with the health and wellbeing space. Products are expected to be delicious, healthy, environmentally- and socially responsible, and will have a variety of products. DSM stated that DSM’s strategy is to help this market advance through the creation of one food and beverage business group that includes the ingredients, global expertise, and solutions provided previously by its different food specialties, nutritional products, and hydrocolloids business areas.
