Plant Science at Kemin

As the human population continues to expand and resources become more limited, solutions to global challenges are increasing to maintain the quality of life. While Kemin continues to strive to improve this quality, our company is committed to invest in the research and development of plant based solutions for these answers.

As a result of our relentless pursuit to improve the quality of life of half of the world’s population each day with our products and services, we expanded our business in the late 1990’s to include highly valued specialty crops. This Specialty Crop Improvement (SCI) team, composed of plant biologists, breeders, agronomists and analytical chemists focus on selecting and developing proprietary plant breeds with sustainable sources of novel, highly efficacious molecules that have strong antioxidant and antimicrobial activities.

During this time, much of our research has transitioned from the lab to the greenhouse, and finally to the field, which gives us unique insights to the daily challenges encountered in growing operations. It is through our experience as growers that we have developed innovative solutions to common problems that we know all growers experience. Our knowledge and expertise in formulating, chemical blending, and manufacturing are the basis for these innovations.


The Kemin Vision

Improving health, feeding a growing population, protecting our resources, and being a resource for others in need . . . these comprise our purpose. They’re our passion. They’re what move us forward and drive us constantly to do more. They’re about touching lives and improving life.

And as we see our world continue to change and grow, we continue to change, to foster new ways of thinking, to redefine our focus, and to expand our reach.

These are our stories: stories of partnership, innovation, growth, new discovery, and, most importantly, of lives changed.
