DSM acquired Erber Group’s Biomin and Romer Labs. Erber Group’s specialty animal nutrition and health
business Biomin specializes primarily in mycotoxin risk management and gut health performance
management, whereas the Romer Labs business focuses on food and feed safety diagnostic solutions. Both expand DSM’s range of higher value-add specialty solutions.

The acquisition of Erber Group’s Biomin further strengthens DSM’s expertise and reputation as a leading provider of animal health and nutrition solutions for farm productivity and sustainability, with an emphasis on emissions reduction, feed consumption efficiency, and better use of water and land. It is
therefore very much aligned with DSM’s focus to make animal farming more sustainable from both an ecological and economical perspective. Romer Labs also complements DSM’s human nutrition and health offering to customers in the food & beverage market segments.
