Fihumin builds second school in Kilema (Kenya)

After the successful completion of a primary school in Damang (Ghana) in 2018, Fihumin has now built nine classrooms for Kilema Primary School in Kenya.


Kilema Primary School is one of the oldest schools in the Makueni district. It is located in a very dry area, with an average rainfall of just 300 mm per year. Because the children are partly taught in buildings classified as unsound, they urgently need new classrooms. The team from Fihumin has long been involved in the extremely poor education situation in Africa. By building new schools, Fihumin wants to help children in Africa to be given access to a solid basic education.

The children receive teaching material there and learn to read and write in child-oriented lessons. In addition, the water supply and sanitary infrastructure have been expanded in order to provide amenities such as safe drinking water for the children. The children will be taught important hygiene rules, which will protect them from diseases. They can take these rules back to their families and establish them there.

The classrooms financed by Fihumin were planned together with the German Welthungerhilfe aid organisation and realised with the involvement of the local population.  The management board and the entire Fihumin team are very pleased about the successful realisation of this sustainable project and will continue their commitment to Africa.


Our customers’ demands are constantly evolving as regards sustainability and climate-change, amongst others.
We react to this by offering new and innovative products, such as a complete feed for dogs and cats with insect protein.

What is special about a complete feed with insects?
Insects provide very high-quality proteins (with a comparable protein content to meat), as well as valuable fatty acids and minerals; they thus offer a perfect alternative to meat.
In addition, they have high levels of unsaturated fatty acids, such as linoleic acid (omega-6 fatty acid) and linolenic acid (omega-3 fatty acid). Furthermore, the food is also ideal for hypoallergenic dogs and cats. The use of insects also helps to protect the environment and no antibiotics are used in the breeding.
In addition to the extruded recipes, cold-pressed and grain-free recipes with insects are also available.

Please contact us, we will be happy to advise you.

Fihumin GmbH manufactures cold-pressed dog food

For several years now, cold-pressed dog food has been developing from a niche or trend-setting product to a constituent of many dog food brands and pet food product ranges.
But what actually is cold-pressed dog food?

Cold-pressed complete food is manufactured without any additional exposure to heat in the form of steam. The raw material is first carefully blended and then molded in a special cold press. Due to the relatively low temperatures prevailing during manufacture, the nutrients as well as vitamins and minerals are optimally preserved.

Fihumin GmbH, one of only few manufacturers of cold-pressed dog foods in Europe, has been offering a variety of formulae since 2013.
At your request, we will also develop a cold-pressed formula exclusively for you.
Having more than 30 years of experience in the animal feed sector, we will stand by your side and advise you comprehensively on how to expand your product line the right way.

Please contact us, we look forward to assist you.
