"Our commitment is to increase the value of products to our clients. Our natural solutions add the functionality, benefits and food safety demanded by the pet owner and are interesting tools for pet food manufacturers to differentiate and segment the products according to specific needs, age groups, races, etc. We have high-protein solutions that improve the attractiveness of food, and which promote gut and immune health”, adds Lima.
