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.
TYPES OF ADDITIVES FOR ANIMAL NUTRITION
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.
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.
