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.
Petfood manufacturers face challenges like oxidative deterioration and microbial degradation of both their raw materials and finished pet food products. Failure to control microbial and oxidative deterioration in pet foods can result in loss of nutritional quality, reduced palatability, and reduced shelf-life.
Kemin provides natural and synthetic antimicrobial treatments and mold inhibitors to help extend the shelf life of pet food and treats. Our range of food safety solutions, developed for renderers and petfood manufacturers, protects ingredient quality and extends product shelf-life by mitigating microbial risks and managing oxidation.
Kemin's ALLINSURTM line manages both oxidation and microbial risks in fats, oils, fresh and frozen meats and rendered raw materials.
