What does Darling Ingredients do?
We create solutions that sustain life
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.
Approximately 200 operating facilities on five continents
With over 200 processing plants on five continents and sales and distribution offices throughout the world, Darling Ingredients is a global leader in creating sustainable food, feed and fuel ingredients from edible and inedible bio-nutrients to help provide for the needs of a growing global population. The only publicly traded company in our industry (NYSE/DAR), we are headquartered in Irving, Texas with approximately 10,000 dedicated employees providing services and products to an international market.
