Rendering experts since 1939
Our promise: to repurpose everything we reclaim
As rendering experts, our role is to reclaim organic by-products from the agri-food industry, then transform them into industrial ingredients that will be used to manufacture everyday items. Each year, our operations repurpose more than 2 million tons of unconsumed by-products across the Americas.
Being a transformation champion means finding increasingly effective solutions for the challenges associated with our world’s growing population, and the resulting rise in global food demand.
A mission that makes a difference
Used cooking oil, meat by-products, organic by-products… each year, Sanimax reclaims more than 2 million tons of agri-food industry by-products.
We then produce protein, grease, and oil using these recovered organic materials. Thanks to our expertise, we are one of the leading suppliers of animal food ingredients for both livestock and pets.
Sanimax’s mission can be summed up in three meaningful steps!
Each day, our Transportation and Logistics team collects agri-food by-products from more than 25,000 sites across the Americas.
Nothing is left to chance: with a fleet of specialized vehicles equipped with real-time operations management technology, organic materials are quickly routed to our facilities to be transformed.
These agri-food by-products undergo advanced processing at our 17 sites. Each of our automated facilities is equipped with sophisticated control systems, allowing us to efficiently manufacture high quality ingredients to be used in a wide range of industries.
Thanks to intelligent data management, we are constantly optimizing our manufacturing processes, helping reduce the impact of mass consumption on the environment.
The value-added goods manufactured by Sanimax are returned to companies that, in turn, use them to make everyday items.
The expertise and engagement of our 2,500 employees benefits everyone. We are thus present in many everyday moments, like feeding a pet or livestock, driving a car, painting a house, and more.
A forward-thinking family business… for more than 80 years!
We pour ourselves into our work with the goal of being the best possible partner for organic material recovery and processing.
Our commitment is guided by strongly-held principles.
Seek better ways
Being the Very Best requires all of us to constantly outdo ourselves. We work around the clock to create greater value not only for our customers, but also for future generations. Together, we are pushing the boundaries of our trade to build a greener future.
We understand the impact of our activities and actions on our colleagues, our customers, our communities, and the agri-food industry. For that reason, we strive to be attentive, sensitive, and open-minded, always eager to listen to others and respect their individual concerns. We care about everyone’s interests, not only today, but also in the long term.
Do what’s right
We always act with integrity. The authenticity and openness that shapes our attitude and approach, no matter the circumstance, is the foundation of our success.
We contribute TOGETHER
At Sanimax, we understand we are responsible for our actions. We believe in the strength of the individual, and we value the ideas our employees bring to the table. We foster a collaborative environment where everyone can succeed, from our colleagues to our customers and partners.
