Vertical Integration

At Kemin, we understand that in today’s environment, consumer perceptions and trends are shifting toward natural ingredients. Our passionate and relentless pursuit for these solutions has produced high quality products that span the world.

Kemin has become one of the most vertically integrated suppliers of plant based ingredients in the world. This method allows us to have complete control of the entire process from plant to final natural extract for safe, consistent, and sustainable products of the highest quality and integrity. These molecules are used to manufacture ingredients that provide functional or active benefits for a wide array of applications in the feed and food industries as well as the health and nutrition and beauty markets.

Consumers are also becoming more environmentally conscience and socially responsible. In response, we began to grow sustainable rosemary and a proprietary line of spearmint, referred to as Hi-RA mint, which were bred to produce higher concentrations of carnosic acid and rosmarinic acid, respectively, and other important phenolic compounds. Today, Kemin is proud to have achieved 100 percent Sustainably Grown certification for both rosemary and spearmint.

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.
