DSM’s head of global marketing in human nutrition and health, Gareth Barker, explains why it has bought a carotenoid supplier (approval permitting), how the Martek acquisition is progressing, and why the company is not finished spending yet.
Barker outlined why the Vitatene offer, which is subject to regulatory approval, fitted with DSM Nutritional Product’s ‘natural’ strategy, which also motivated the Martek Biosciences buy-out last year.
Going forward, “we are always looking at new acquisitions” Morgan stated. “We have a shortlist which will fit our strategic direction – we’re always looking for all opportunities within our arena. But who and when only time will tell.”
