Kemin Will Open a New Plant for Clean-Label Protein Ingredients for Meat and Poultry Products
Global ingredient company Kemin Industries announced it will open a new site in Verona, Missouri. The new facility will manufacture Proteus®, a patented line of clean label functional proteins that Kemin recently added to its portfolio through the acquisition of Proteus Industries.
The new 38,000-square-foot state-of-the-art production plant is a $40 million investment. Once operational - in March 2023 - it will employ more than 30 full-time workers in the Verona community. The site will have an initial capacity of creating applications for more than 100 billion pounds of meat, poultry and protein-based formulations.
“Our Proteus line is in high demand with food processors of protein-based products," said President and CEO Chris Nelson. "Proteus products improve yield, nutrition and quality of functional foods."
Kemin’s presence in Missouri started in 2011, when Kemin Nutrisurance, the company's pet food and rendering technologies business unit, opened its first manufacturing facility in the region. Today, Kemin has two locations in Missouri: the existing facility in Verona (located about two miles from the new one), and another in Sarcoxie – employing 60 area residents.
“Southwest Missouri has served as an excellent place for Kemin's production capabilities and will continue to be a great community to expand our manufacturing opportunities," said Nelson. "We believe that Verona and the surrounding areas provide a talented and dedicated workforce ideal to grow our global footprint and transform the quality of life."
Established in 1961, Kemin is a privately held, family-owned-and-operated company with more than 3,300 global employees and operations in 90 countries, and customers in more than 120 countries.
Kemin supplies over 500 specialty ingredients for many different applications: human and animal health and nutrition, pet food, aquaculture, nutraceutical, food technologies, crop technologies, textile, biofuel and animal vaccine.
