Prodap serves over 5,000 farms across Brazil

According to a press release issued by the company, Royal DSM announced that it has reached an agreement to acquire Prodap, a Brazilian animal nutrition and technology company that combines technology offerings, consulting services, and customised nutritional solutions to drive efficiency and sustainability in animal farming.

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 impressive customer loyalty rates.

By harnessing the power of Prodap's digital solutions, DSM said it will take another step forward in its precision and personalisation journey, as well as strengthen and further develop its digital solutions to reach more markets globally.

"The need for sustainable animal farming has never been greater or more urgent," said Ivo Lansbergen, EVP DSM Animal Nutrition & Health. "Precision nutrition is a key pathway to improving the efficiency and sustainability of animal farming, creating value for a range of stakeholders, including farmers and society at large. As such, I'm delighted that we're joining forces with Prodap to deliver precision farming solutions to our customers, which will contribute to more sustainable animal farming for all."
