Partnerships with customers
Darling Ingredients Inc. has a global presence, with production units in Europe and Asia, and subsidiaries in France, Germany, Spain and Italy. But the company’s main focus is the European market. By offering partnerships in R&D and product development, Darling Ingredients Inc. strives to forge long-term business relationships with its customers.
The fat products supplied by Darling Ingredients Inc. are important energy providers and an essential component of good animal feed. Animal fat is versatile in use because of its nutritional value and technical characteristics. The same applies to protein products. These are essential for the structering and maintenance of the body. Animal protein is easiest to absorb, as it consists of the amino acids needed by people and animals. Animal protein therefore has many applications in chicken feed.
Minerals improve resistance levels and ensure strong bones and good functioning of the muscles and nervous system. As opposed to minerals sourced from quarrying, the animal minerals supplied by Darling Ingredients Inc. are part of a sustainable cycle, as phosphate is reused.
