Animal Nutrition

QualiTech Animal Nutrition supplies hundreds of products to the livestock and pet industries worldwide. Our flagship product, SQM™ trace minerals, help animals achieve their maximum genetic potential in health and performance. Products are developed specific to customer needs using a unique PolyTransport™ technology that ensures the bioavailability of essential nutrients. Every year, multiple research trials are conducted that lead to improvements in existing products and the development of innovative new products.

In addition to SQM™ trace minerals, QualiTech also offers rumen-protected nutrients, vitamins, flavorings and other animal nutrition solutions.
QualiTech customers rely on experienced animal health and nutrition technical service consultants for expert advice on feeding practices that suit the specific needs of their animals and maximize their profit potential.

Plant Nutrition

QualiTech Plant Nutrition is rapidly making an indelible mark in some of the most technologically advanced agricultural regions of the country. Over years of intensive product development and multiple field performance trials on a wide variety of crops, QMIN™ micronutrients have steadily earned a reputation for consistently outperforming long-established competitive products—especially in high-value specialty crops such as fruits, vegetables and nut trees. Today QMIN™ products have won the endorsement of respected crop consultants with one of the largest retail agricultural product distributors in the United States.

Food Solutions

QualiTech Food Solutions are focused on building our customers’ brands—and market share. QualiTech Food Solutions division has excelled at commanding a narrow but vastly deep market segment that innovative food technologists and marketers are increasingly using to add value to their products. Our core competency is particulates and inclusions and savory blends that add flavor, function, mouthfeel and visual appeal.

But it’s what we can do with them that really gets the creative juices flowing. It’s all about Imagining. Exploring. Innovating.
QualiTech Food Solutions can be used as a delivery system for getting unique ingredients such as fiber, protein, fruit content and nutraceuticals into a system while masking or minimizing some of the inherent issues that particular ingredient may have in the finished application. And that’s just for starters. Top it off with extreme customer service and you have an entire portfolio of products, service and expertise that defines added value.

Our quality standards are tighter and more stringent because all three divisions are held to higher standards.
