More than a century later, it continues to be a central part of their business, but they have also taken the underlying philosophy of rendering – reclaiming material, renewing it, and returning it to the market – and extended it in new directions. Today, Sanimax offers a range of by-product collection services, as well as specialized maintenance for the restaurant industry. Sanimax is a leading supplier of ingredients for agriculture and animal nutrition and a globally respected source for hides and skins.
