Amyris enters first production development and production agreement with DSM

July 17, 2017 |

In California, Amyris announce it has entered into its first product development and production agreement with Koninklijke DSM N.V. (Royal DSM), the global science-based company active in health, nutrition and materials, to develop a food and nutrition molecule for which DSM is a major market provider.

As part of the previously announced equity investment DSM is making into Amyris, DSM and Amyris have agreed to focus on a number of short- to medium-term product development & production opportunities in vitamins and other nutritional ingredients. This agreement is the first of what is expected to be several of such development and production projects.

As part of the agreement, DSM will partner with Amyris and fund the development of the technology to produce the specific molecule that Amyris will scale and supply long term to deliver improved performance while growing its business. DSM will take the molecule to market utilizing its channel and market access and take advantage of Amyris’s biotechnology production, which provides a lower cost of production than currently available.
