As a socially responsible company, Kemin works closely with a variety of organizations, including, but not limited to, those listed below.
World Food Programme
The World Food Programme (WFP) is Kemin’s largest global community partner, and together, work to improve the quality and safety of the worldwide food supply chain. The World Food Programme was awarded the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize for its efforts to combat hunger and its contribution to bettering conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas. As one of the world's leading humanitarian agencies, WFP fights hunger worldwide and provides food assistance in emergencies and programs that help communities improve nutrition and build resilience.
Using our extensive knowledge and expertise in food technologies, we impact more than 25 million people each year through our partnership.
As one of WFP’s first corporate partners, Kemin has worked with the United Nations agency for more than a decade to assist with complex and evolving food quality and safety strategy. We provide critical assistance as WFP continues to expand the development and implementation of a Food Safety Quality Management System and Quality Culture within the organization. By sharing Kemin’s expertise in food safety and quality control, we help prepare WFP to better assist with emergency food programs, especially in crisis situations and war-torn areas.
In 2022, Kemin formally extended our partnership with World Food Programme and will continue to provide services, including laboratory analysis in Belgium and expertise in quality management from the U.S.A., to help achieve Zero Hunger, one of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
