For your information, Green Mountain Animal, LLC, being among the top pet food contract manufacturers out there, handle all types of pet food projects. Let’s take a look at the streamlined manufacturing process of pet foods like gels, liquids, pastes, and powders below.
Nearly all manufacturers try to customize the manufacturing process as per quality standards. But even so, processing and manufacturing methods are somewhat common among many manufacturers.
Pet food production processes are nearly the same as processed food in the food industry. The only difference with respect to pet product manufacturing involves the use of ingredients. All manufacturers utilize different sources and varieties of ingredients. Besides, if you’re talking about a great pet food contract manufacturer like Green Mountain Animal, LLC, you must know that the use of ingredients is strictly based on the clients’ discretion.
For flesh products, manufacturers must attend to a variety of different processes, including rendering, processing, water/fat/protein separation, and other tasks. Hard offals (such as hoofs and bones) and soft offals (viscera) are also removed from flesh products and flesh byproducts during the manufacturing process. The rendering process helps in determining the overall shelf life and quality of the pet products being manufactured.
Usually, flesh products composed of meat come rendered directly from outside companies. From there, the pet food manufacturers process, seal and package the pet food/products directly for the retail market. On the other hand, frozen meat products are generally used for dry pet food processing and production.
The manufacturing processes reach the cooking, grinding, and mixing stages once the ingredients are sourced from reliable locations and suppliers. The flesh and flesh byproducts are ground with tough machinery (third party-authorized) to be mixed with other ingredients chosen for the final pet products/foods.
Once the products are mixed in bulk, they’re given the required shape. This step will depend on the manufacturer’s efficiency. When talking about Green Mountain Animal, LLC, you must know that the company is capable of giving the desired shape to all pet products.
Once cooked, ground, and mixed, the products enter the shaping stage (if required by the brand that has ordered the production of the pet products). There, the products get appropriate forms. However, we’re talking about chewing and solid pet foods.
For liquids, gels, and pastes, the manufacturers enter additional processes to give the product the desired form. After giving the final products the required shape and form, the manufacturer will transfer the products to the packaging stage. Professional workers handling all the machinery will ensure that all products enter the right containers designed respectively for them.
After the packaging process, a reliable manufacturer hurries to distribution, but not before ensuring that the products pass quality control checks. The canning processes and preservative additions improve the shelf life. Canned pet products have a higher shelf life if they have been packaged and contained right with the use of natural preservatives. However, some manufacturers are still debating over the use of chemical and natural preservatives.
Various authorities have taken control of setting quality standards for pet product manufacture here in the United States of America. Food and Drug Administration has various branches that stem from one parent governmental organization. The FDA and USDA (US Department of Agriculture) emphasize the use of certain ingredients for pet product manufacture while restricting the use and import of several ingredients.
