GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Traded in other countries:43D.Germany,
Darling International, Inc., was incorporated in Delaware in 1962 under the name "Darling-Delaware Company, Inc. On December 28, 1993, Darling changed its name from "Darling-Delaware Company, Inc." to "Darling International Inc. It is a developer & producer of natural ingredients from edible & inedible bio-nutrients, creating customized specialty solutions for customers in the food, pet food, pharmaceutical, feed, fuel, bioenergy & fertilizer industries. The Company recycles all aspects of animal by-product streams into useable and specialty ingredients, such as gelatin, tallow, feed-grade fats, meat and bone meal, poultry meal, yellow grease, fuel feed stocks, green energy, natural casings and hides. Its value-added products include edible fats, bone products, fertilizers and blood products. The Company also recovers and converts used cooking oil and commercial bakery residuals into valuable feed and fuel ingredients. In addition, the Company provides grease trap collection services and sells used cooking oil collection equipment to restaurants and collects and land applies primarily food residuals. The Company operates in five continents United States, Canada, Europe, China, Australia, and South America. The Company operated in North America and its operations were organized into two segments, Rendering and Bakery. The Rendering segment under The Rothsay brand collected two primary types of animal by-products, (i) beef and pork by-products and (ii) poultry by-products, which are collected primarily from meat and poultry processors, grocery stores, butcher shops and food service establishments. These rendering materials are collected in one of two manners. Certain large suppliers, such as large meat processors and poultry processors, are furnished with bulk containers into which the raw material is loaded. The Company provides the remaining suppliers, primarily grocery stores and butcher shops, with containers in which to deposit the raw material. The Company's North American Rendering segment produces finished products primarily through the grinding, cooking, separating, drying, and blending of various raw materials. The process starts with the collection of animal by-products (including fat, bones, feathers, offal and other animal by-products). The animal by-products are ground and heated to extract water and separate oils and grease from animal tissue as well as to sterilize and make the material suitable as an ingredient for animal feed. The separated oils, tallows, and greases are then centrifuged and/or refined for purity. The remaining solid product is pressed to remove additional oils to create meals. The meal is then sifted through screens and ground further if necessary to produce an appropriately sized protein meal. The bakery feed division, which operates solely within the United States, collects bakery residual materials and processes the raw materials into BBP, including Cookie Meal, an animal feed ingredient prima
