Royal DSM has acquired Danish probiotics manufacturer BioCare Copenhagen, helping it expand its position in gut health ingredients.
Royal DSM is a global science-based company active in health, nutrition and materials.
The company has publicized the acquisition of their company with BioCare Copenhagen.
DSM along with biocare will expand its offering in gut health ingredients using probiotics.
BioCare Copenhagen has multi-market distribution agreements with a number of leading dietary supplements and pharmaceutical companies and has launched products in over 40 countries worldwide.
DSM already has a strong position in gut health solutions with its Culturelle product range, the number-one-selling probiotic dietary supplement consumer brand globally, as well as with its ingredient brands Oatwell and Tolerase.
The company sees further growth potential in gut health ingredients beyond the established indications for digestive health and immune health.
Fields increasingly recognized as being impacted by the gut microbiome include the gut-brain axis, metabolic health and heart health.
DSM's ambition in addressing the gut microbiome and its portfolio of nutritional ingredients are very synergetic with BioCare Copenhagen's approach and products, and the combination is well-catered to address the existing and emerging gut health areas.
