In the Netherlands and Denmark, Royal DSM acquired BioCare Copenhagen A/S to expand DSM’s offering in gut health ingredients with probiotics. BioCare Copenhagen is a privately-held company founded in 2012, focused on probiotics and specialized in microbial actives with proven health benefits, targeting gastrointestinal disorders, metabolic disorders, infections, and immunity.
BioCare Copenhagen offers high-quality white label probiotic supplements and complete product concepts with strong consumer appeal. 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. 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.
