What we do

We venture to suggest that virtually every person across the U.S. has either used, consumed or benefited from a KENT® Corporation product at one time or another.

Hundreds of the products we make are either used as standalone or as an essential ingredient in thousands more — including livestock production, pet care, food service, consumer retail, health care, sport drinks, spirits brands and packaging, to name a few.

Our vision

Population growth is the only consistent demographic trend. The desires and dietary requirements of this trend require innovative technology. KENT® Corporation is in pursuit of this global challenge through a diversified team of companies. Our vision is to become a recognized leader in creating value through innovative foods and ingredients for the whole family.

Our mission

KENT® Corporation is engaged in Strategic Investment Management for the benefit of its shareholders, customers, employees and their extended community. KENT is dedicated to applying its Core Values across all its operating subsidiaries and coordinating the management of those subsidiaries in order to deliver reasonable and consistent financial returns on a long-term basis.
