CSS Teams up with Kemin Industries to Create Sustainable Pet Food Ingredients from Upcycled Fruits & Vegetables

Global ingredient manufacturer Kemin Industries is working with CSS’s innovative grocery recovery and proprietary Harvest to Harvest technology to create sustainable pet food ingredients from upcycled fruits and vegetables.

McCLELLAN, California, January 11, 2021 /Businesswire/ --

Every year, up to 40% of food in the U.S. is wasted, at a cost of over $200 billion. For this reason, Kemin Nutrisurance, the pet food and rendering technologies business unit of Kemin Industries, is bringing together its scientific expertise and industry-leading pet food solutions with CSS’s innovative food recovery processes and technologies. Together, the two companies aim to develop high-quality, environmentally sustainable products that are safe, shelf-stable, tasty and nutritious for the rapidly growing pet food market.

Since its founding in 2012, CSS has been dedicated to reducing food waste by bringing new life to food. CSS is leading the way by recovering unsold fruits, vegetables and meats and converting them into valuable products before the food perishes. CSS has introduced and perfected its patented Harvest to Harvest technology to collect and repurpose recovered food from supermarkets and other food recovery partners.

Kemin Nutrisurance provides industry-leading solutions for pet food stability, safety, palatability and nutrition. Using scientific expertise and innovative technologies, Kemin Nutrisurance partners with pet food manufacturers and renderers across the globe to solve challenges through every step of the pet food supply chain.
