Sustainable natural fats and proteins

Ten Kate’s natural animal fats and proteins are important ingredients for foodstuffs, animal feed and technical products. Sustainable products with high added value that help our customers to operate successfully in their markets. Our raw materials, processes and products all comply with the most stringent European standards for quality and food safety. We are one of the larger producers of animal fats and proteins in Europe and export our products around the world.

A family-owned company since 1920

Our company was founded in 1920 and is still a family-owned business. Our core values are continuity, cooperation, trust, innovation and sustainability. As a family-run company, we do not pursue short-term success but focus on continuity and the future. We invest in long-term relationships and are constantly innovating. Our customers can count on the safety and quality of our products and our ability to assist them with innovative solutions and sustainable products.

Ultra-modern production facilities

Our production facilities are equipped with the latest technology. We have complete control over our processes: we know precisely where our raw materials come from and can therefore deliver products of consistent and verifiable quality. We have separate production locations: our fats and proteins for foodstuffs are produced exclusively in the Netherlands, while our production in Germany is devoted solely to animal feed and technical products.

Innovation and research

Our own Research & Development department develops fats and proteins with specific properties and substantial added value. With our constant focus on innovation, we develop new products and optimise processes and so improve the quality of our products. Our R&D department works closely with universities and research institutes in Europe and Asia and with our customers in the countries where we operate. This collaboration results in solutions and products that can help our customers to excel in their markets.
