Ingredient solutions to support the wellbeing of animals

When you picture your family, is your pet included?  According to a recent Mintel Global Pet Food Packaging Report, more than half of US consumers indicate that they are concerned about the health/wellbeing of their pets as they are with that of their family.  With consumer demand becoming increasingly dynamic and the humanization of pets propelling innovation, formulators of pet food and treats have to consider health benefits, the research behind ingredients, the functionality of ingredients, sustainability and sourcing considerations, more and more. Conversely, owners of farms from cattle, swine, poultry and aquaculture require ingredients to help ensure livestock health and well-being, minimize distress and maintain or increase animal production.

Launch state-of-the-art pet food products that combine high quality with nutritional value to make pets and their owners happy.
