The Importance of Food Safety in Rendering
Food safety in the petfood industry is a shared responsibility among renderers, ingredient suppliers, petfood manufacturers, distributors and even the pet owners who feed the final pet food or pet treat to their companion pets. Ensuring the safety and quality of commercial pet foods is both a challenging and complex process.
Renderers face challenges of oxidative deterioration and microbial spoilage of rendering products and raw materials. Failure to control these challenges can result in the loss of quality, palatability and shelf-life of rendered materials like fats and proteins.
