We are dsm-firmenich

We’re innovators in nutrition, health, and beauty. And we bring progress to life

The countdown is on to tackle the world’s biggest problems and meet consumers’ ever-evolving needs.

Our ambitions may be sky high, but our feet are firmly on the ground

Our four complementary businesses use trailblazing science to deliver solutions that make sense. Think plant-based burgers that taste great as well as reducing the pressure on our planet; a clever feed additive that cuts methane emissions from burping cows; a yummy gummy that boosts people’s immunity; or perfumes with outstanding ingredients that smell beautiful. 

Perfumery & Beauty

Incredible scents, naturally. We believe in conscious perfumery and beauty, using the latest science and innovation to create fabulous fragrances and innovative ingredients with a more positive impact on people and planet.

Taste, Texture & Health

Food and drink that’s delicious, nutritious, sustainable, and affordable? We don’t think that should be too much to ask. By supporting our customers in delivering extraordinary food and drink experiences, we help bring joy to consumers.

Health, Nutrition & Care

Whoever we are, wherever we live, we all need a boost sometimes. We add critical nutrients to diets, deliver proactive health solutions, and drive medical innovation. It’s all part of our mission to improve quality of life for all.

Animal Nutrition & Health

Protein production that powers more sustainable nutrition – let’s make it happen. From healthier livestock to healthier farms and a healthier planet, we help farmers navigate and accelerate the food system transition our world needs. ​
