We’re Driven to Be Sustainable


At Kemin, we’re curious for a better tomorrow, and we’re driven to be sustainable. For us, sustainability isn't just a mission; it's our essence and has been since 1961.  

We strive to meet the global demand for safe animal protein. Our commitment is rooted in optimising production methods with safety, efficiency, and sustainability, leading every initiative.

At Kemin, we are compelled to be transparent and accountable. We’re committed to the following:

Producing Safe and Nutritious Food — We believe in providing innovative solutions that protect people and animals from foodborne risks. Our focus on health risks, such as salmonella and mycotoxins, ensures that we not only meet today's needs but also contribute to a sustainable and thriving future for generations.

Sustainable Sourcing and Product Offering — We're committed to responsible choices, assessing environmental impacts through Life Cycle Assessments. Moreover, we're actively working on integrating more sustainable products, expanding services, and addressing any less sustainable ingredients in our formulations.

Efficient Operations and Sustainable Collaborations — We are compelled to manage resources wisely, investing in energy savings and precision technology. As part of the Global Feed LCA Institute, we contribute to a global database, ensuring stakeholders can make sustainable decisions. Our collaborations with industry groups like FEFAC and Fefana deepen our drive to be more sustainable.

Embarking on a journey to become a leading sustainability company, we acknowledge areas for improvement. Key targets and actions include reducing GHG emissions from sourced materials, responsible sourcing through memberships like RTRS and RSPO, and setting ambitious reduction targets for single-use packaging.
