Innovation

It's in our DNA.

Growing through science and innovation

Regardless of whether you help build a product or provide a service, change will be a part of what you do. More than waiting for change to impact us, at Kent Corporation, we work to lead it — to look for ways we can do better, to make others better, to be more responsive and relevant.

 
Plant-Based Products

We take one of nature’s most abundant plants, corn, and turn it into products that are essential to our economy, health and wellness and used around the world. Across our operating companies plant-based products are core to who we are, from using virtually every part of the kernel in our wet-milling process to supporting backyard gardens by introducing, or reintroducing, families to canning.

 
Future of Agriculture

Founded on the innovation of Kent 34% Baby Beef in 1927, which revolutionized the feed business, Kent continues to find innovative animal nutrition solutions for commercial livestock producers, fleet channels, retailers and backyard farming enthusiasts. We are proud to partner with those advancing new technologies in our marketplaces.

 
Scientific Achievement

We launched our sustainable cat litter when our scientists were looking for valued added ways of using the entire kernel of corn. They formulated a cat litter that was a more sustainable alternative than typical clay-based litters. Today, World’s Best Cat LitterTM is a family of natural cat litters that harnesses the power of naturally absorbent corn and leads in the U.S.

 
Innovative Packaging

Our innovative flexible packing capabilities allow our customers to make a more eco-friendly and sustainable choice when it comes to delivering trusted food and beverage products to consumers. Capitalizing on marketplace trends and internal expertise, Kent delivers on this unique packaging, which, compared to rigid packaging, takes up less space when disposed.
