Pet Food Ingredient Storage

Fairview Mills knows that pet food and ingredients are often cheaper to transport in bags than loose products. Fairview Mills, one of the J-Six Enterprises Divisions, has the infrastructure and capability to transload bulk pet food ingredients in loose containers and bag them according your requirements. This makes it easier to move your products across the product line, from raw product to ready for use. Send us whole corn for example. We can unload it, mill and package it however we need. Now your raw corn is ready for the next stage in the pet food industry.


You want to ensure that your pet food ingredients are packaged in bags or totes. Our pet food ingredient packaging system includes running every pet food product through our lab to determine its moisture level, nutrient break down, 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. When you can be sure that a fifty-pound bag of corngluten is indeed fifty pounds, it will help you track inventory more accurately.
