Kemin Nutrisurance opened its newly expanded 5,000-square-meter production facility in Vargeão, Brazil. The expansion increases the facility’s capacity allowing Kemin to serve more customers in South America and around the globe.
Most of the facility’s production will support customers in Brazil and other South American countries.
Research and development
The new facility includes a research and development center, expanded storage and state-of-the-art production equipment. A new spray dryer was installed to support Kemin’s line of pet health and nutrition ingredients, including protein hydrolysates and functional ingredients. The facility will also support Kemin’s palatant product lines, which include meat and plant-based flavorants for pet products.
The facility is currently certified to serve countries in South America and Europe and is in the process of approval in the United States. It is GMP-certified for food safety and quality and uses a LEAN manufacturing program for process and product quality improvement. Kemin is finalizing food safety certification FSSC 22000.
