Our world is growing. Global population is increasing by tens of thousands every day, and the pressure on our planet’s resources for food, feed and fuel is greater than ever. Our future – and that of our children – depends on our ability to find economically and ecologically viable ways to provide for a growing population’s basic needs.

At Darling Ingredients, we contribute to that goal by creating sustainable food, feed and fuel ingredient solutions.  We take the meat by-products from our animal-based diets, and process them to reclaim valuable and essential bio-nutrients, fats, oils, proteins, meals and more that are used daily in personal, commercial, and industrial products. Our natural and sustainable ingredients are marketed internationally to the pharmaceutical, food, animal feed, pet food, biofuel, fertilizer, sports nutrition and cosmetic industries. 

Our commitment to the health and safety of humans, animals, industries and the planet as a whole ties in firmly with our core values: 

  • ENTREPRENEURSHIP

  • TRANSPARENCY

  • INTEGRITY

These values are the foundation for all of our activities, setting our path as we develop and produce sustainable solutions for our world.
