DSM Nutritional Products enters Tatarstan with premix plant

DSM Nutritional Products, a subsidiary of Royal DSM (The Netherlands), and Tatenergo JSC (Republic of Tatarstan) have opened the first premix plant in Russia under its newly created affiliate DSM Nutritional Products Rus.

Located in Naberezhnye Chelny, Republic of Tatarstan in the Russian Federation, the groundbreaking facility is the first joint venture between the two companies.
It was officially opened last Friday in a ceremony attended by Elena Skrynnik, Federal Minister of Agriculture of the Russian Federation, Ilshat Fardiev CEO of Tatenergo, Antonio Ruy Freire, President Animal Nutrition & Health and Enzo Trimigliozzi Vice President Eastern Europe, both DSM Nutritional Products.
The plant, which is the most advanced of its kind within the Russian Federation, will produce premixes for the Animal Nutrition & Health sector. A large percentage of the raw materials for the plant is sourced directly from DSM manufacturing sites.
Ilshat Fardiev, CEO of Tatenergo, said at the opening ceremony: “This is a significant moment for Tatenergo, for DSM, and for agribusiness in Tatarstan. It provides the basis for developing a state-of-the-art agribusiness in Tatarstan that will not only serve the needs of our own country but also make a major contribution to the animal health & nutrition sector of the entire Russian Federation.”
