American Dehydrated Foods, Inc.

ADF was founded more than thirty years ago by William H. Darr, who began with the concept of re-purposing unused egg protein into a highly digestible, balanced source of essential amino acids for the pet-food industry. Mr. Darr’s leadership set ADF’s standard for delivery of uncompromising quality in its products and services, and continuous improvement in quality is still a fundamental principle of the company.

Our bottom line continues to be a commitment to customer satisfaction. Today, ADF offers premium-quality Chicken Protein, Chicken Broth, and Chicken Fat from a USDA-inspected facility.

ADF's drying facility is located in Missouri, in the U.S., where HACCP principles have been used for decades to ensure product quality and safety. Most products are EU-certified so that they can be imported into European Union countries and Canada.
