New call-to-action

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.

Removing lethal aflatoxins from pet food

As a large number of product recalls recently showed, plant-based ingredients in pet foods can hide a dangerous poison. The near-invisible threat is aflatoxin, one of the mycotoxins produced by certain molds (fungi) on plants such as corn, grain and tree nuts. When this slips into the food chain undetected, it can harm pets and pet food manufacturers’ reputations.

The key to remaining competitive in a crowded market: Can a brand be a Man's Best Friend?

Brand Loyalty. For some, it’s a buzz word. For others, it’s marketing jargon. For petfood manufacturers, it’s the key to remaining competitive in a rapidly evolving industry. But can a brand ever be a man’s best friend? 

While a brand may not be able to compete for that position, it can certainly come close. When it comes to petfood, consumers seek long-term reliability and quality for the beloved canine members of their family.
