Beyond the Test: a new Era in the Pet Food Safety Industry !

Pet Food

Pets are part of the family and they deserve the very best! With a growing demand of Premium & nutritious products, Petfood manufacturers must continually innovate new formulas and implement even higher standards of Food Safety to meet evolving regulations. Dry Petfood and minimally processed Petfood which are the largest growing categories in the market are also the ones of higher microbial risks. As required by regulators, in order to limit potential transfer of contamination to pet owners, deliver pathogen-free products is a new huge challenge for Petfood manufacturers.  

Moreover, understand and master the microbiome of the factory is key for Petfood manufacturers to lead them limit massive sanitization and potential chemical residues in finished products that can affect pets who are much more sensory sensitive than humans.

Pet Food

To control and minimize all these risks, extensive daily microbial testing throughout the production process combined with rigorous environmental monitoring are required, that can be very expensive. Current controls based on testing alone and risk detection have limitations. Today’s ever-increasing food safety and pet owner demand challenges demand new, innovative solutions to grow their business and maintain a competitive edge in the market.
