HORN Animal Wellness will distribute Emsland Group’s Empet ingredients, sourced from renewable raw materials that provide better nutritional properties, with non-GMO, gluten free vegetable proteins as well as starch derivatives with excellent water binding, high expansion and moisture properties.
“Our priority has been to meet our client’s needs—to source and distribute reliable, quality ingredients from renewable raw materials that provide better nutritional properties,” said Jane Petrolino, vice president, HORN Animal Wellness. “As the global leader in the production of vegetable-based starches and top-quality proteins, we’ve seen firsthand Emsland’s commitment to provide superior products with considerable importance to resource saving.”
She added, “Emsland Group offers a unique portfolio of pea and potato flake products that allow our customers to use label claims consumers are looking for, such as ‘non-GMO,’ ‘gluten free,’ ‘grain free,’ ‘pure and simple ingredients’ or ‘all-natural.’ All of Emsland's ingredients are manufactured without the use of genetically modified plants and are free from genetically modified genetic substances.”
Tomasz Lorenz, global director-feed and animal nutrition for the Emsland Group, said, “We’re excited to partner with HORN Animal Wellness for our U.S. distribution. Their technical and application expertise and leadership within the animal wellness industry parallel our values and commitment to provide the best products for our customers.”
