Ingredient solutions to support the wellbeing of animals

When you picture your family, is your pet included?  According to a recent Canadian Pet Market Outlook 2014 report, eighty six percent of dog owners and eighty nine percent of cat owners consider their pets to be part of the family.  Since pet owners are trying to eat more healthfully, and get their nutrition from foods rather than supplements, they are more likely to purchase nutritionally enhanced foods and beverages for their pets. With consumer demand becoming increasingly dynamic and the humanization of pets propelling innovation, formulators of pet food and treats have to consider health benefits, the functionality of ingredients, sustainability and sourcing considerations, more and more. Conversely, Canadian owners of aquaculture & livestock farms require ingredients to help ensure livestock health and well-being, minimize distress and maintain or increase animal production

Launch state-of-the-art pet food products that combine high quality with nutritional value to make pets and their owners happy. Ingredion offers a unique portfolio of ingredient solutions- from starches and gums to pulse flours and fibres that deliver numerous functional benefits in canned, semi-moist, kibble, treats and extruded dry pet food applications.

Partner with Ingredion to:

  • Provide nutritional enhancement for dogs, cats and horses.
  • Improve functionality, reduce breakage and improve the appearance of your end products.
  • Deliver clean label declarations, from pure and simple ingredients to non-GMO and organic.
  • Differentiate with grain-free, gluten-free and enhanced nutritional value




“Do the little things well” is a basic mantra while raising livestock. Vital management of the smallest areas of your business can reap big rewards. Reducing animal stress, improving nutrient absorption and lowering feed costs can offset many inherent productivity and profitability risks.
