Menon expands US footprint with new co-packing facility
Thursday, May 20, 2021
Menon Renewable Products is expanding its capacity in the United States with the addition of a new co-packing facility. The announcement comes after a large contract for Menon’s proprietary MrFeed® ingredient was placed by one of the largest producers of poultry and other livestock in the country.
Leading up to the new facility announcement, Menon conducted extensive testing of MrFeed® with some of the world’s largest poultry feed and food companies, as well as one of the largest swine contract research organizations (CRO) in the United States.
“Our goal has always been to replace unsustainable feed ingredients with something that is better for the environment and the animals themselves,” said Suresh Menon, founder and president of Menon. “Working with such a large and well-respected feed and food producer, we are now able to not only measure MrFeed®’s effectiveness on metrics such as growth and survivability, but we are also able to have conversations about scalability and what it will take to introduce MrFeed® as a leading alternative to traditional animal diets on a global scale.”
The new co-packing facility will allow for increased production of up to a few thousand tons per week of MrFeed®. Menon supplies its product to producers across four continents. The company recently announced certification for the European Union with new customers there as well.
