DSM has announced that it will build the ‘industry’s first’ premix production plant dedicated to the early life nutrition market at its factory in Buk, Poland.
According to DSM, the new plant will be outfitted with advanced mixing technologies, allowing the company to develop complex infant formulas which meet the needs of manufacturers operating in the early life nutrition market.
Construction of the new plant will start in the next few weeks, and DSM estimates that the investment will double the production output of the factory within the next two years.
