" to give back. " Rendering reclaims the
meat and bone scraps from animal agriculture and grocery store leftovers and
transforms them into ingredients for new
products, including high-quality protein
for pet foods.
Without rendering, roughly 50% of
each meat animal would go to waste,
according to the North American
Renderers Association, Alexandria,
Va. But rendering does more than that
in terms of sustainability. It diverts billions
of
pounds
of food waste from landfills; water is

Jiminy's
salmon harvesting and processing. Parts that do not go
into the human food chain are used to deliver protein,
omega-3 fatty acids and other essential nutrients to pets.
" Our patented process - known as enzymatic hydrolysis - transfers fresh and pure Norwegian salmon
parts in a natural and gentle way into premium foodgrade ingredients, " said Marianne Warnaer, director of
global sales. " Essentially, our biorefinery hydrolyses the
salmon parts into hydrolysed proteins (peptides), and
we gently separate the oil, proteins and sediments, making total use of rest streams with zero waste.
" The advantages of our enzymatic hydrolysis process
are not only increased digestibility and bioavailability
(due to lower temperatures), but also reduced allergy
risk and increased solubility and palatability, especially
in pet food, " she continued. " What makes this process
more sustainable compared to a like ingredient is the
way it's manufactured. Instead of using a batch-based
process, which can result in higher energy costs and in-

creased impact on the environment, we use a continuous
process that provides consistent quality and yield. "
As one of the largest pet food makers in the world,
Nestlé Purina PetCare, St. Louis, also believes it is critical that the company be a good steward of the global
food supply chain for both humans and pets.
" Every ingredient in our food serves a purpose and
we formulate for the nutrients needed for the pet, " said
Jack Scott, vice president, sustainability and responsible
sourcing, Purina. " A large majority of the animal protein that we use in our pet food today is quality sources
of meat not used in the human food stream. The use of
these ingredients, like the nutrient-rich organ meat that
is not generally consumed by people, provides a source
of high nutritional value for pets and helps offset the environmental impacts of the human food system.
" The practice of sourcing nutrient-rich ingredients
from the same suppliers working with the human food
supply chain supports the utilization of the whole animal
and demonstrates our respect for the environment and the
overall food system, " Scott said. " [We are also] looking at a
portfolio of protein sources, including traditional animalbased protein, as well as plant- and marine-based proteins. "

Alternative proteins

Jiminy's started with the concept of " what if we could reduce our dog's carbon footprint? " The star ingredient in
the company's products is insect protein.
" We started with crickets - roasted and ground with
nothing else added - and have recently added recipes
with grubs, " Carlson said. " It's simple. If you're sourcing
your protein from smaller animals, you're using less land
and water. Using insects is of course a huge advantage, as
you can't go smaller for your protein.
" Grubs and crickets are an amazingly efficient food
source, as they take up a fraction of the acres required
by a cattle feedlot, " she added. " Water usage is similar.
Insects require a fraction of the amount needed by cattle
or chickens. The delivery system itself prevents waste
