Royal DSM completed the acquisition of Prodap, a leading animal nutrition and technology company in Brazil.
Based in Belo-Horizonte, Prodap is at the forefront of the market for digital solutions, which is growing particularly quickly in Brazil. Prodap combines nutrition, consultancy, and technology services to optimize ruminant farming operations. Through its portfolio of digital solutions, it collects data and develops insights in real-time, which are then translated into tailored nutritional solutions for customers, with remote or in-person support provided by its experienced consultants. Prodap has operations in the states of Mato Grosso and Minas Gerais and employs 330 employees, serving more than 5,000 farms across Brazil with customer loyalty rates.
By harnessing the power of Prodap’s digital solutions, DSM will take another step forward in its Precision & Personalization journey. DSM will strengthen and further develop its digital solutions to reach more markets globally, enabling smarter nutritional decision-making thanks to artificial intelligence and other tools.
Prodap will complement DSM’s deep animal nutrition knowledge and advisory capabilities with its extensive consultancy experience, facilitating an even higher level of customer experience. Additionally, by supporting more efficient farming, the acquisition contributes to DSM’s commitment to enabling a double-digit reduction in on-farm livestock emissions by 2030 as part of its 2021 food system commitments.
