Your Partner for Pet Food and Rendering Solutions
Kemin is proud to partner with many of the leading renderers, ingredient suppliers and pet food manufacturers to innovate effective solutions that fulfill changing consumer expectations in key categories of the pet food market: antioxidants, food safety, palatants and proteins.
Serving the Pet Food and Rendering Industries
Kemin has been supplying ingredients for pet food since the 1960s. By the mid-1980s, pet food choices were becoming increasingly sophisticated and sales were increasing as markets expanded. This shift required Kemin to reposition its approach to match that of its customers.
Since the 1960s, Kemin has developed and supplied a variety of ingredients used in the pet food market. As the pet food market evolved over the next few decades, with pet food choices becoming more sophisticated and diverse, Kemin changed its approach to meet the evolving needs of pet food manufacturers, ingredient suppliers and renderers.
In 2000, Kemin Industries established a new global business unit- Kemin Nutrisurance, which has become the company’s Pet Food and Rendering Technologies division. We’ve continued to evolve, developing and supporting solutions for every phase of the pet food supply chain. Today, our expansive product portfolio fulfills the local and global needs of our customers, helping them to effectively maintain freshness, deliver flavour and palatability and manage microbial risk.
The Kemin Nutrisurance Vision
Here at Kemin we operate with a unified vision: to provide a complete solutions portfolio, which includes application and product expertise, to help our customers produce safe and nutritious food and treats for companion animals worldwide.
