Through the deal, DSM is acquiring Erber Group's animal nutrition and health businesses Romer Labs and Biomin and will become the world leader in the mycotoxin risk management market. Romer Labs offers mycotoxin and food pathogen testing solutions, while Biomin provides feed additives that protect against mycotoxin contamination and increase gut performance. Biomin's product portfolio also includes livestock probiotics and phytogenics, which in recent years have garnered interest to promote livestock growth while reducing the use of antibiotics in feeds. As strict regulations covering veterinary medicinal products become fully enforced in the EU in 2022, clients should recognize this move has set DSM up for major growth.
