Our Commitment to Quality:
Kemin invests a great deal in maintaining top-of-the-line manufacturing facilities and conducts rigorous quality assurance testing of incoming and outgoing material. In 2010, we chose to further formalize our commitment to quality by pursuing Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) benchmarked certifications. These are quality certifications that GFSI has identified as meeting food safety standards worldwide.

This level of certification is not required of Kemin, but does provide documented reinforcement of our commitment to providing only the highest quality products. In the last two years, three Kemin facilities passed an audit and received Food Safety System Certification 22000 (FSSC 22000), a GFSI recognized scheme. In January 2012, our production facility in Belgium received FSSC 22000 for all food ingredients manufactured in the facility. Shortly thereafter, the Kemin plant extraction facility in Des Moines received FSSC 22000, and most recently, the certificate is applicable to our large-scale manufacturing facility in Des Moines, which produces ingredients for feed, food and pet food. Other facilities are currently ISO 9001:2008 certified with plans to receive GFSI recognized certifications in the near future.
