Who We Are

Each day brings new changes to the world. Each sunrise is met with a larger population, new bacteria and diseases, droughts and other environmental crises, and a myriad of other new challenges across many fronts. Helping to maintain the Earth’s fragile equilibrium is why Kemin innovation is constantly in action around the world.

Our network of specialists and scientists worldwide stays attuned to the needs of each region by being on site, experiencing them firsthand, and speaking with government officials, farmers, ranchers and local authorities to learn their concerns and needs.

Staying abreast of these developments drives Kemin innovation, directing our efforts to solve the most critical, current and impending problems first, allowing us to introduce timely food production solutions that will have the most benefit for producers and consumers – ultimately helping abate issues such as food insecurity.

Our innovative leadership affects more than agriculture. We’re originators of countless ingredients that improve the health and lives of humans, their pets and animals. Some of these innovations include new food technologies that keep edibles fresher and more flavorful, and nutraceuticals that maintain wellness, improve eye and cognitive health, aid weight loss and enhance athletic power.

At Kemin, we will never stop in our mission to improve the quality of life.
