Global Ingredient Manufacturer Leads Conversation on Food Security

Kemin President and CEO featured as global leader on advancing global nutrition

News provided by, Kemin Industries, DES MOINES, Iowa: Dr. Chris Nelson, President and CEO of Kemin Industries, a global nutritional ingredient company that uses science to touch 3.8 billion people every day with its products and services, was recently featured by The Wall Street Journal on The Business Debate, a news organization based in London, England.

“At Kemin, our goal is to see that by the latter half of the century, the nine or ten billion people we have on the planet will have adequate nutrition,” said Dr. Nelson. “The United Nations (UN) has cited up to a third of the food we produce is wasted in some manner. There are a variety of things we can do to ensure our food is safe, high quality and appealing from production.”

Since 1961, Kemin has been dedicated to improving the quality of life for animals, pets and humans by providing scientifically sound ingredients and solutions to a growing population. Kemin is also an established corporate partner with The World Food Programme in providing research and products to support the organization as it feeds 80 million people around the world in times of crisis each year.

“When looking at the future of feeding a growing global population, it is essential to provide adequate nutrition in the first 1,000 days of life. The UN states that children who do not receive such may have a lower IQ and may be stunted in life. We must ensure we are preparing the next generation with the resources and proper nutrition needed to thrive,” said Dr. Nelson.

The Business Debate is a partner of The Wall Street Journal. The news organization calls upon business leaders across industry sectors to lead conversations on the future of business and community.
