 How biotechnology can enable more sustainable food systems

DSM regards biotechnology as a key enabler to develop more sustainable products, processes and solutions for the agriculture & food sector that are safe, healthy and scalable. We speak with DSM Chief Technology Officer, Marcus Remmers, about the developments in the field of alternative proteins, the need for more collaboration and open innovation, and DSM’s biotechnology activities in Austria, this year’s EFIB host country.
