Quality feed

Welcome to KMP - Köster Marine Proteins GmbH.
We are a trading house for high-quality, high-protein feed such as fishmeal and soy protein concentrate (SPC).
Quality assurance and traceability, taking sustainable aspects into account, are important cornerstones of our business.


Consumers, government authorities and legislators demand complete traceability of feed. We overcome this logistical challenge with the help of our network, which has grown over decades.

Referring to the chart, as an example you can trace a sample batch of fishmeal back along the entire supply chain from catching the fish to delivering the fishmeal to the customer.
