Kemin Industries Inc. has established two production facilities in Italy. Both sites will produce a full range of spray-dried and liquid petfood palatants. They will also be the first fully owned and integrated Kemin palatant manufacturing facilities in the European market.
The first facility began operating in April. The second facility is the larger of the two sites and will begin operation by the end of the year.
While cat trends continue, the pandemic has added to overall slow-growth treatment of the cat food market.
Premiumization and humanization, as well as automation, fueled continued operation growth in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic.
