22 Sep 2017 --- Royal DSM, a global science-based company active in health, nutrition and materials, has announced the acquisition of Twilmij B.V., a well-established Dutch nutritional solutions company in the animal feed sector. DSM notes that its strategy in Animal Nutrition & Health is to offer tailor-made solutions to its customers leveraging its product portfolio and innovation capabilities.

Twilmij is recognized by its customers and other stakeholders as an outstanding partner due to its excellent nutritional services, speed and agility, DSM reports. The acquisition also includes Twilmij’s affiliated company Kwalipak B.V. which offers specialty small-pack solutions for specific applications for the feed industry.
