New strategic alliance on pet food flavours

Kemin Industries, Inc. and Tyson Foods, Inc. have formed a strategic alliance to develop, manufacture, market and sell liquid and dry flavor-enhancers known as palatants, to the North American pet food market.

The alliance, which took effect January 1, combines the expertise, experience and technology of the two companies to provide cost competitive, high quality pet food palatants from the sourcing of ingredients to the food bowl.

Both Kemin and Tyson will be involved in the research and development of the palatants. Tyson will manufacture the products from raw materials supplied by the company's chicken, beef and pork plants. The Kemin Palasurance technisales team will market the products under the Palasurance(tm) and Topnotes(r) brands to major pet food companies.

Company comments
This alliance is another milestone in our core strategy of revolutionizing the conversion of our meat and poultry by-products into higher margin products," said Dick Bond, president and CEO of Tyson Foods.
Giuseppe Abrate, president of the Kemin pet food ingredients business commented: "Kemin's core competencies in palatability, freshness, and stability, along with our excellent customer service combined with Tyson's ingredient and palatability expertise, will bring to market products which deliver the best flavor, palatability, stability and aroma on the market."

The alliance will cover the United States, Canada and Mexico with an option to collaborate in other areas of the world in the future.
