Dog Food Manufacturing Process

What is the dog food manufacturing process? Dog foods don’t necessarily come in one-size-fits-all varieties. Rather, they come in different formulations, providing varying combinations of energy levels and tastes. However, it’s the dog food manufacturing process that affects most products’ quality. How a certain dog food was made will reflect its quality and efficacy in the pet food market. Most dog owners don’t want their pets to chew on low quality supplements or eat low quality dog food. Therefore, most dog owners opt for companies and brands that promise high quality manufacturing processes and quality control.

Without any interruptions in the manufacturing process, we ensure high quality production on all ends. Here’s what to know about the high quality dog food manufacturing process.

Careful Ingredient Selection

As per our clients’ requirements and big pet food companies, we choose ingredients as specified and highlighted in the manufacturing contract. At no point do we choose ingredients not fit for the production of high quality dog food. While being in the industry for 25 years has provided us immense experience in manufacturing high quality dog food, we tend to stick to our client’s specifications and details.

A balanced nutritional diet for all pets, including dogs, is highly necessary for a healthy life. Selecting ingredients from reliable sources allows our manufacturing processes to yield high quality dog food. The ingredient selection tends to keep other aspects of dog food in check as well. For example, certain ingredients are specifically beneficial or harmful for a certain size range, age range, and variety of pets.

Cooking, Sealing, and Storage

It’s important to make sure that all ends of the manufacturing process are up to par. That’s why we use the latest dog food production technology. While reducing waste to low levels, we keep the cooking and sealing efficiency above industry averages. It allows us to perform quality control checks along with timely delivery to all clients. Our technology has allowed us to measure and  inform every part of our manufacturing process.

Controlling everything from length and time to temperatures, we streamline the manufacturing processes, so no client experiences a delivery delay. Efficient sealing and appropriate storage help preserve the dog food’s nutritional potency. We extend the shelf life of dog food through FDA and third party authorized processes.

Accurate Labeling and Quality Control Checks

Quality is something that Green Mountain Animal, LLC never compromises on. Interestingly, our consistent quality and timely deliveries are two of the main qualities that separate us from the competition in the pet food industry. Once the dog food is ready, we cool the products and place them under appropriate packaging machines. During the packaging process, every individual item receives accurate labels defining the manufacturing process in summary along with the ingredient listing.

The label contains the main source of all ingredients used to manufacture the products. It’s clear that quality is a major priority because it’s a matter of diet and nutrition for consumers’ beloved pets. Before reaching distribution centers, our products undergo robust quality checks to make sure that no client receives sub-par products.

The most important quality control checks include:

  • Reliable suppliers selection to make sure that the company is sourcing ingredients that are inspected, tested, and verified by third parties.
  • Maintaining all important dog food parameters extending to color, textures, palatability, and moisture content.
  • Maintaining the nutritional profile of the manufactured dog food consistent and worthy of the clients’ choice.
