K&R is one of the few companies that only manufacture marine gelatin and collagen having no possible contact with bovine or porcine products. This prevents any possibility of BSE or cross contamination. In addition, the K&R products are also able to be certified as Halal and Kosher by strict agencies.
The Fish Gelatin and Collagen are manufactured from the skins of wild, deep-sea fish harvested from the North Atlantic Ocean and not scales from the aquaculture grown by farmers in rural areas. This eliminates the possibility of forbidden chemicals or antibiotics being present that may have been used by fish farmers. In addition, no sulphites are used in the production, yet our gelatin and collagen have a light color and very low microbial counts.
In 2015 K&R was acquired by Ajinomoto Trading Co., Inc. K&R has grown from making technical grade fish gelatin to being a major manufacturer of food and pharmaceutical grade Fish Gelatin and Hydrolyzed Fish Collagen for export throughout the world. Our exacting specifications and uniform output have made us the provider of choice to leading customers.
