On June 16, 2019, Kemin Industries unveiled a new logo and global vision to guide the global ingredient manufacturer to 2042 and beyond.

Kemin strives to sustainably transform the quality of life every day for 80 percent of the world with our products and services.

Kemin reaches more than 3.8 billion lives – half the world’s population – every day with its products and services. This was a vision set in 1998 with a target goal of 2019. Kemin reached this milestone two years early.

“When we created our previous vision 20 years ago, it was ambitious and encompassed all aspects of our business. Since then, Kemin has grown ten-fold, and now the impact we can create is even greater.” 

– Dr. Chris Nelson, President and CEO

Kemin Logo

By 2042, the world’s population will reach approximately 10 billion people.

For Kemin to transform 80 percent of the world’s population – approximately 8 billion people – each must encounter Kemin products five times a day. From sunrise to sunset, they may have eggs for breakfast, feed their pets, wear jeans, take health supplements and purchase bakery items or meat at the market – each step of their daily routines an opportunity to interact with Kemin ingredients.

To focus on transforming the future, Kemin created a new logo to accompany its expanded global vision.

The new logo reflects transparency and innovation, while honoring Kemin’s history. The company kept its stylized “K” to commemorate the previous two logos. The thick circle that previously encased the logo has been replaced with an arch showing forward movement – but still in the signature Kemin red. The arch calls attention to the “I” to emphasize Kemin’s innovation. Behind the arch is the “N”, representing the Nelson family who stand behind Kemin now, just as they have since found the company, and will continue to do so.

Now, as Dr. Chris Nelson said, “We’ve turned our attention to ensuring that what we do at Kemin today creates a better tomorrow.”
