DSM, a food ingredients company, has appointed Pieter Nuboer as vice president of Animal Nutrition and Health, Asia Pacific, and André Rhoen as vice president of Human Nutrition and Health, Asia Pacific.

The Food Innovation Cluster (FIC) partnered with DSM Nutritional Products (DSM) to strengthen the food manufacturing and nutrition science ecosystem in Singapore.

DSM has extended its range of continental cheese solutions. The Delvo Cheese CT-Taste is a blend of cultures that creates a balance between aroma and acidifier cultures, and allows producers of continental cheeses such as Manchego, Gouda and Edammer to maintain the taste, texture and shelf-life that consumers expect.

Yet, in the process, it also allows producers to halve the ripening time of the cheese, and this results in significant energy savings, as less energy is required to control temperature and humidity for each gram of cheese produced. Cheese producers can now achieve a more sustainable cheese production, with total savings reaching almost US$209,000.

The signed agreement will assure SIT students are provided with industry experience as part of a holistic learning approach.
