When the competent authorities approve the takeover the move expands the company’s global network of premix facilities and offers DSM improved access to the growing Romanian livestock feed market.
With 21.5 million people, Romania has the seventh largest population of the European Union. Agriculture has traditionally been the backbone of the country’s economy.
Romania has approximately 10 million hectares of actively cultivated arable land, producing ample resources of grains which favour livestock production.
Doubling of feed production
Recent studies forecast a doubling of industrial feed production over the next decade to match the growth in animal farming.
The modern premix facility was originally built in 2005 with the technical support of DSM Nutritional Products. Following commissioning, it has grown its sales significantly year on year.
