Packaging pet food ingredients in bags or tins is a decision that must be made. To ensure that your pet food ingredients are properly packaged, we run each product through our analytics laboratory to check for moisture, nutrients, and other metrics. We then sift through your ingredients vigorously to remove as much dust and chaff as possible. This sifting helps to improve the quality and safety of your pet food ingredients. It also ensures that every fifty-pound bag contains your product. If you are able to trust that a bag of fifty pounds of corn flour is actually fifty, you will be able track inventory more accurately.
