Kemin Industries is working with CSS to explore the development of sustainable pet food ingredients from upcycled groceries.

By doing this, Kemin and CSS aim to produce ingredients that are safe, healthy, tasty and nutritious for pets, and sustainable for the planet.

Every year, up to 40% of food in the US is wasted, at a cost of over US$ 200 billion. Kemin Nutrisurance, the pet food and rendering technologies business unit of Kemin, is using innovative technologies from CSS’s patented Harvest to Harvest technology to collect and repurpose recovered food from supermarkets and other food-recovery partners to explore the development of high-quality, sustainable pet food ingredients from upcycled groceries.

“Pet parents are increasingly demanding natural and sustainable solutions for their companion animals. We are excited to leverage CSS’s innovative grocery recovery and H2H technology with our commitment to providing safe and sustainable pet food ingredients that improve pet nutrition, health and wellbeing,” said Yannick Riou, president of Kemin Nutrisurance.
