Kemin’s innovative and natural solutions help prevent microbial growth and extend shelf-life, meeting the needs of manufacturers and consumers alike.
Since time immemorial, agricultural products such as meat and poultry have been highly perishable due to their nature—this factor makes the extension of their shelf-life a core issue for manufacturers.
In recent years, food quality and safety issues in meat have been receiving media coverage in developed and developing countries. Consumers continue to have concerns regarding food safety issues and suppliers are equally concerned with addressing issues affecting shelf-life to ensure the safety and quality of products and increase consumer appeal and loyalty. As an innovative solutions provider, Kemin has expanded its portfolio to address these concerns with clean-label and natural, plant-based ingredients to satisfy customer and supplier requirements for natural food, delaying spoilage and improving shelf-life.
Delivering a fresh, tasty and most importantly, safe product is at the core of the ethos of meat manufacturers, regardless of whether the meat is fresh or processed. As such, manufacturers should consider the broader implications of food safety lapses and recognise the benefits that natural shelf-life extension solutions could bring to their products.
