Pet Treat Contract Manufacturing

Fairview Mills also understands that it's often cheaper to store pet food and pet ingredients in bags than to transport them as loose, bulk products. Fairview Mills is a J-Six Enterprises company. This means that we can transload your bulk pet food ingredients and bag them as per your instructions. It's much easier to move your products from raw material to ready-to-use pet foods. For example, you can send your whole corn to us and we will unload, mill, and package it as you require. Now your raw corn is ready for the next stage in the pet food industry.


If you plan to pack your pet food ingredients into bags and totes you need to make sure they are quality-controlled. The pet food ingredient packaging process involves running each pet food product through an analytics lab to verify its moisture levels and nutrient breakdown. To remove as much dust and chaff from your ingredients as possible, we then vigorously sift them. This process will improve the quality of pet food ingredients and ensure that your fifty-pound bag is completely filled with your product, not with chaff or dust. When you can be sure that a fifty-pound bag of corngluten is indeed fifty pounds, it will help you track inventory more accurately.
