Brenntag can Fulfill Your Animal Nutrition Ingredient Needs

People want the best for their animals. Families often consider their pets a part of the household they wish to protect. Farmers see their livestock as a valued part of their business that needs to stay strong and healthy.

We are sure your business has its own philosophy about animal care, and we can give you the ingredients you need to make the animal feed and pet food you envision. Our network of more than 490 locations covers all markets and regions, so you can focus on doing what you do best.


Our portfolio features a wide range of pet food additives that target one of three applications.

  • Preservation
    Pet food needs a long shelf life to keep both animal and owner healthy.
    Additives that inhibit mold and reduce microbial load prevent spoilage and illness.
  • Nutrition
    Animals have dietary needs that require added nutrients.
    Some ingredients can promote a pet food's nutritional value to give pets a well-rounded meal.
  • Processing
    Pet food ingredients like binders and conditioners make the pelleting process
    easier for more efficient processing.

Animal Feed Ingredients Aid in Three Things

In addition to the applications above, animal feed ingredients can aid in:

  • Medication
    Ingredients such as antibiotics help farmers keep livestock healthy.
    These additives reduce the chance of illness and promote weight gain.
  • Pest Control
    Feed for livestock tends to attract pests that spread disease and create a nuisance.
    Specific ingredients can change breeding conditions in the feed,
    repelling pests without harming the animal.
  • Increasing Appetite
    Flavored additives make the feed more appealing to livestock, so they can get the
    nutrition and weight gain they need.

We work with leading producers to distribute clean label ingredients that meet discerning customers' standards. Our portfolio includes organic, non-GMO and naturally derived additives for specialized feed.

Benefits of Feed Additives

The animal feed ingredients we distribute enhance product quality by promoting freshness and keeping out pests. They adhere to industry standards for safety and nutrition and improve overall health. Our portfolio of animal food additives enables you to create a product you can be satisfied with because we do not take a one-size-fits-all approach. We work with every customer to meet them on their terms, so we can innovate together.

Your customers will enjoy the benefits of quality additives as much as their animals. Pet owners will appreciate that you made food their animal friends enjoy — not to mention the long shelf life. Customers in the agriculture industry will also get to benefit from increased feed efficiency and healthy livestock. No matter what challenges your customers need you to solve, we can help you find the answer.
