We are a science-based company comprised of on-site researchers, specialists and growers. Crop health and production is woven into the very fabric of our being, and you’ll see that passion and commitment in all the high-quality crop technologies we provide.

Kemin products are made by growers, for growers. Our Specialty Crop Improvement (SCI) program allows us to grow our own high-quality specialty crops for our plant-based ingredients. Our team has expertise in plant biology, breeding, propagation, pest management, agronomy, formulation and greenhouse production. We put all that knowledge into products we bring to market, tested on our own valuable crops.
