In today’s globalized, networked and highly transparent pet food market, obtaining the right product or ingredient is not enough. From the nutritional and functional properties of your products to formulation and efficiency requirements. From traceability and sustainability trends to innovation.

Pets are like family, and we want to do the best we can to care for them. A proper, nutritious diet sets a good foundation for our furry friends, but what may sound unpalatable to our tastes, is likely an ingredient that our pets need for optimum health. What is in your pet's food matters. It can also help save valuable resources that are in ever shorter supply as population grows. Pet Food Processing magazine discusses this in this article from their June 2018 issue.
