Fairview Mills understands that it is often less expensive to store and transport pet food or pet food ingredients in bags as opposed to loose, bulk products. Fairview Mills is one the many J-Six Enterprises divisions. We have the infrastructure to handle your bulk, loose pet food ingredients, and then bag them to your specifications. It's much easier to move your products from raw material to ready-to-use pet foods. For example, send us whole corn. We will unload it and mill it. Then, we'll package it in the way you want. The next step in pet food processing is now that your raw corn has been processed.
THE FAIRVIEW MILLS TREATMENT
Packaging pet food ingredients in bags or tins is a decision that must be made. 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 improves the quality of your pet foods ingredients. However, it also ensures that fifty-pound bags are filled with your product. Being able to trust that the fifty-pound bag containing corn gluten is full of corn gluten will allow you to better track your inventory.
