Bech-Bruun has assisted BioCare Copenhagen in the sale to DSM
BioCare Copenhagen A/S has today been sold to the listed Dutch undertaking DSM, a global science-based undertaking working with health and nutrition. Bech-Bruun has assisted BioCare Copenhagen in the sale.
BioCare Copenhagen is a privately-held company founded in 2012, focused on probiotics and specialized in microbial actives with proven health benefits, targeting gastrointestinal disorders, metabolic disorders, infections, and immunity. The company offers high-quality white label probiotic supplements and complete product concepts with strong consumer appeal. BioCare Copenhagen has multi-market distribution agreements with a number of leading dietary supplements and pharmaceutical companies and has launched products in over 40 countries worldwide.
DSM has a strong position in gut health solutions with its Culturelle® product range, the number-one-selling probiotic dietary supplement consumer brand globally, as well as with its ingredient brands Oatwell® and Tolerase®. The company sees further growth potential in gut health ingredients beyond the established indications for digestive health and immune health.
With the acquisition, DSM expands its offering in gut health ingredients with probiotics, an attractive market segment in nutritional ingredients, growing an estimated 7% per year.
