Kemin Industries, a global ingredient manufacturer, is commemorating the first year of its expansion into Canada.

In January 2018, Kemin acquired the assets of its longtime distributor, Agri-Marketing Corp., and has integrated this business into Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health, which has created more growth in the Canadian market.

“With the new Canada location, we have increased our efforts to better serve our current customers, and we are continuing to explore new opportunities for Kemin products and services to improve the quality of life for people and animals across the country,” says Ferdie Nel, country manager – Canada, Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health – North America.

“We’ve had great reception from Canadian producers and the agricultural industry, and we look forward to growing our business with these partners further.”

As Kemin completes its first year of business in Canada, it’s preparing for future expansions and increasing product awareness with Canadian producers.

Currently, the company offers more than 20 products in Canada, including organic trace minerals, mold inhibitors, antioxidants and acidifiers, among other categories of products.

“While we will continue to bring new products to market in the future, we are very pleased with the diverse portfolio we currently offer. Our promise of quality and safety is embedded in everything Kemin does, and this is a great source of pride for us that we want to share with our Canadian customers,” Nel says.
