Kenney & Ross Limited was founded in 1945 by two Canadian entrepreneurs. For years K&R manufactured high-quality products that had a variety of applications from cod liver oil to being used in reagents for laboratory testing to producing kosher, pharmaceutical grade, fish gelatin. In the early 2000s, K&R began producing Hydrolyzed Fish Collagen that has no possible contact with bovine or porcine products which eliminates any chance for contamination. K&R has grown to become a major manufacturer of food and pharmaceutical grade Fish Gelatin and Hydrolyzed Fish Collagen for export throughout the world.

Kenny & Ross Limited only uses by-products from the food fish industry, that would normally go to waste. The areas Kenny & Ross Limited source our raw material from originate from the North Atlantic, and the species of fish are regulated by quotas, season of catch, and catch/fishing methods. These rules are enforced by the respective Government Bodies in each respective country: Department of Fisheries and Oceans (Canada), NOAA Fisheries (USA), and Common Fishing Policies (Europe).
We work very closely with our suppliers who provide detailed information on the catch areas, species, vessel names, and process facility names and addresses to confirm the origin of the raw material supply. Our Fish Gelatin & Collagen products have full traceability from supplier to end user.
Kenny & Ross Limited is in the process of investigating the relevance of becoming a member of the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) organization. Many of our suppliers have already obtained their MSC certification. Our application is in process.
