With optical sorting technologies, pet food can be safe and fault-free

In today’s increasingly competitive market, pet food manufacturers must ensure their products are safe, fault-free, and contain exactly what they claim. This means eradicating all traces of foreign materials and cross-contamination, and guarding against the naturally-occurring poison aflatoxin. Not easy, you might say - but now that TOMRA Food has brought its world-class sorting technologies to the pet food industry, it can be done.

Why only remove foreign material from dry kibbles when you can also prevent cross-contamination?

No manufacturer of dry pet food likes losing revenue by throwing away good product. And no buyer of dry pet food likes opening the bag to find that the contents look imperfect. Yet both of these disappointments can happen - and happen too often - when poor silo-management allows differing batches of kibbles to unintentionally get mixed-up.

Keeping foreign materials out of rendered and processed pet food

Preventing foreign materials from reaching the end of the processing line is a battle that producers and renderers of pet food must fight on two fronts. On one front are the incoming raw materials, which almost always contain unwanted objects; on the other, the processing line itself, where unwanted materials can accidentally fall into the product mix. Some foreign materials are big and easy to see, some so small they’re almost invisible - but whatever their size and wherever they come from, all must be removed. No exceptions, no excuses.
