DES MOINES, Iowa (November 18, 2021) – Kemin Industries, a global ingredient manufacturer that strives to sustainably transform the quality of life every day for 80 percent of the world with its products and services, has added new team members to the Kemin Food Technologies group following the acquisition of Proteus Industries, Inc. earlier this year, which added sustainable, clean-label yield enhancement technology to the global Kemin Food Technologies portfolio of ingredient solutions.
With Kemin now producing and suppling the Proteus® product line, Kemin Food Technologies – Americas has expanded its team to support these products and solutions. The below individuals have taken on the following roles:
“We are very excited to grow the Proteus business as part of Kemin Food Technologies,” said Bill Fielding, Proteus Business Director, Kemin Food Technologies – Americas. “Expanding Kemin’s key platforms to include functional proteins is an exciting challenge and a synergistic effort for our team, as Proteus technology will enable Kemin customers to improve quality and yield while meeting clean-label and cost-savings initiatives – which is more important now than ever.
“The pandemic and recent labor shortages have given the consumer a glimpse of what happens to cost at the meat counter when demand outpaces supply,” said Fielding. “The growing population and increasing global demand for protein is a very real challenge to the industry, which we expect to continue well past recent events. Innovative ingredients that enable processors to improve quality and yield more naturally and efficiently will play an important role moving forward. Our job is to help our customers meet that challenge.”
