Kemin Industries opens a new manufacturing facility in Verona, Miss., to produce its Proteus line of clean label functional proteins for a variety of meat and poultry applications.

The 38,000-sf facility cost $70 million and employs nearly 30 full-time workers in the Verona community. The production plant will have an initial capacity to produce enough functional protein to treat more than a billion pounds of meat, poultry and protein-based applications.

“Since acquiring Proteus in April 2021, we’ve been eager to open this site and serve customers, who continue to demand sustainably sourced, technologically advanced solutions,” said Marc Scantlin, president, Kemin Food Technologies – North America. “Opening our first-ever Proteus dry production plant provides the opportunity to partner with more meat and poultry manufacturers, positively impacting the quality of our global food supply.”
