VERDILOX™ for Natural Pet Food Sustainability

Evolution of the Pet Food Market

Pet humanization is continuing to drive significant growth in the demand for natural, premium pet food products globally. The growth in consumer demand for premium pet food products has increased use of natural antioxidants in pet food ingredients and natural pet food products. The use of natural antioxidants instead of synthetic antioxidants supports a more consumer friendly label. The trend toward novel pet food ingredients (pulses, insect, catfish, etc.) creates shelf life stabilization challenges that benefit from natural antioxidant solutions. 

Natural Antioxidant for Pet Food Preservation

The growing global demand for natural antioxidants for pet food preservation has created abundant opportunities and challenges. Kemin has developed innovative products that help to maintain freshness of raw materials and pet food products. In order to keep up with the changing dynamics in the pet food market, beyond mixed tocopherols, Kemin is committed to innovation that can address challenges for maintaining freshness and shelf life. 

Vertically-integrated ingredients have enabled Kemin to develop new approaches to delivering natural shelf life stability. Kemin combines crop improvement technology and plant selection knowledge with application and research expertise to create novel products—such as VERDILOX—that increase the sustainability of natural antioxidant ingredients.

Sustainability Goals:

  • Always act with environmental responsibility
  • Ensure sustainability of raw material pricing and supply
  • Ensure social accountability
  • Continuous improvement of crop production
  • Obtain and maintain third-party verification (Kemin botanicals are certified sustainably grown by SCS Global)

This approach demonstrates our commitment to providing socially and environmentally responsible natural antioxidant solutions for pet food preservation while ensuring continuous supply and pricing stability. Leading renderers, ingredient suppliers and petfood manufacturers trust Kemin as their antioxidant supplier.
