DSM''s Nutritional Products, a Dutch-based company, signed an investment agreement on March 18, 2009 with Changchun Economic & Technological Development Zone to set up a premix feed plant in Changchun, Jilin Province.



With a total investment of US$5 million, the new plant, named DSM Vitamins (Changchun) Ltd, will begin construction work on May 2009 at Changchun Economic & Technology Zone.
