Your Partner for Pet Food and Rendering Technology

For decades, Kemin has worked with the world’s leading pet food manufacturers, renderers and ingredient suppliers to develop innovative solutions that address evolving consumer needs in four key product categories: antioxidants, palatants, proteins and food safety.

Kemin History in 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.

As a result, Kemin Nutrisurance, the Pet Food and Rendering Technologies division of Kemin Industries, was officially established as a worldwide business unit in 2000. We’ve evolved to offer solutions for every step of the pet food supply chain, to maintain freshness, deliver flavor and palatability and manage microbial risk.

Our Vision

Our vision is to offer a complete solutions portfolio, which links product and application expertise, to assist customers in creating safe and nutritious food for companion animals worldwide.
