Product Areas


To sharpen our focus on innovation and growth, we have carried out a strategic realignment, placing our businesses into three subgroups that operate virtually independently and are fully aligned to their respective markets. They are supported by competent service companies.

With our distinctive knowledge of people, animals, plants and materials, we intend to focus in future on the areas of health care, nutrition and high-tech materials. By applying our skills in these areas we aim to

  • prevent, diagnose, alleviate and cure diseases,
  • contribute to ensuring a sufficient supply of high-quality food for an ever-increasing global population and
  • help people to lead fulfilling, active lives through the contributions made by our products in the fields of communications, mobility, sports and home living.
