Zinpro celebrates its 50th anniversary

Zinpro Corporation, the leading provider of animal nutrition solutions, recently celebrated a milestone anniversary after being founded in Excelsior, Minnesota 50 years ago. Hundreds of Zinpro employees came together virtually in recognition of the company’s 50th anniversary during a global town hall event broadcast from headquarters, and each region of the company had planned its own unique anniversary celebrations. 

Today, we recognise the bold vision and determination that have led this company from its humble Minnesota roots to the global, family-owned business it is today. Zinpro’s founders had an incredible passion for improving animal health and well-being through mineral nutrition – and it’s a passion shared by our customers all over the world. We are excited to continue this partnership for the next 50 years and beyond, helping to drive better animal health outcomes, greater resource efficiency and sustainability, and ultimately business success for our customers.”

Zinpro was incorporated in 1971 by Dean and Mary Anderson as a small organic trace mineral company. Dean Anderson had the vision to use zinc to improve animal nutrition and performance and they began marketing their first product, ZINPRO 40 (ZINPRO zinc methionine). This process delivered the mineral to the animal’s bloodstream through a unique pathway for absorption – the amino acid transporter – and resulted in exceptional uptake. The early discovery was advanced through further studies and peer-reviewed research and established Zinpro as an authority on science-driven animal nutrition. Zinpro began quickly developing additional trace mineral products and marketing its solutions on a global scale.

Today, Zinpro is a leading global animal nutrition solution provider for ruminants, poultry, swine, equine, aquaculture, companion animals, and even humans. The company remains family-owned with a team of world-class animal scientists and 11 regional offices worldwide selling its products in more than 70 countries.
