As a result of this merger, DuPont N&H is positioned as one of the world’s leading providers of sustainable, bio-based food ingredients and extended its capabilities into the fast-growing pharma excipients space. FMC’s complementary portfolio and technical expertise has enhanced DuPont N&H’s growth potential with a broader offering of products and solutions, an expanded footprint, a strong R&D pipeline, and access to different and complementary routes to market.
