As pet owners demand high-quality ingredients, authentic feeding experiences, and functional ingredients, a new set of considerations come to light. More recipes and batches are needed to offer more pet food options, yet this presents new risks such as cross-contamination with allergens, dealing with fresh meats and vegetables, and the potential for recalls. As the once inexpensive dry food is recreated with high-quality ingredients, more sanitary requirements are put into place.
Hidden dangers exist within dry and wet pet food. Dry pet food will tackle the challenge of eliminating moisture for a consistent product, while also using a Clean-in-Place (CIP) system. Wet pet food deals with a messier CIP instance, and high-meat pet food will need to have foreign material sorted out prior to production. Learn what a CIP system can do for your production. Additional utility considerations include product handling, separation procedures, and special handling for allergen batches.
