T.C. Products Co. Inc. changed its company name to Tier 1 Nutritionals Inc., effective March 1. The company, a contract manufacturer of vitamin and trace mineral premixes and specialized feed ingredients, has operated under its original company name since it was founded in 1957 by H.H. Thomsen and R.M. Comstock.
Today, Tier 1 Nutritionals provides contract manufacturing services to a wide range of manufacturers, innovators and marketers of high-value, branded feed ingredients. Specializing in blending and compounding vitamin, trace mineral, enzyme and microbial ingredients, Tier 1 Nutritionals manufactures nutritional premixes, dry granular forage inoculants, direct-fed microbial feed supplements and branded feed ingredients sold throughout North America and worldwide.
Tim Jacobson is the principle owner of Tier 1 Nutritionals and serves as the company's president. Since joining the company, Jacobson has endeavored to broaden the scope and scale of the company's manufacturing capabilities to meet the growing demand for specialized, value-added nutritional feed supplements.
“We decided to change our name to Tier 1 Nutritionals to better reflect our company's first tier position in working with the micro-ingredients used to fortify and supplement animal and poultry feeds,” Jacobson said. “We specialize in compounding high-value ingredients that are used in very small quantities by manufacturers of complete animal and poultry feeds."
Tier 1 Nutritionals is HACCP certified and a Food & Drug Administration licensed and inspected feed ingredient blending and packaging facility.
