Kemin’s Animal Nutrition Plant Gets FSSC Certified

February 20, 2013

Kemin says that although GFSI-recognized certifications are considered a quality standard for the food industry, this recognition is unique for a feed ingredient manufacturer.

Kemin’s Des Moines, IA, manufacturing facility has received Food Safety System Certification (FSSC) 22000:2010. The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) recognizes FSSC 22000:2010 certification as indication of a rigorous food-safety management system. Kemin’s Des Moines facility manufactures over 250 ingredients used in animal agriculture nutrition as well as the food and pet food industries.

Kemin says that although GFSI-recognized certifications are considered a quality standard for the food industry, this recognition is unique for a feed ingredient manufacturer.

“This certification gives our customers peace of mind that Kemin delivers on its promise to provide quality, safe ingredients. It also validates our role as the market leader in food safety,” says Dr. Chris Nelson, president and CEO of Kemin Inudstries.
