Product recalls associated with pet food have sparked calls for heightened safety controls by industry stakeholders, regulators and consumers.

Pet food manufacturers face a number of challenges such as proper temperature monitoring, raw material sourcing and product design, traceability, sanitation methods and standardizing industry best practices. Meeting these and other unforeseen challenges are key for pet food companies to maintain consumer trust and loyalty in the expanding global marketplace.  Pet food testing is a necessity in today's environment to ensure a safe, high-quality product that will meet a consumer's expectations.

Our food testing labs offer an extensive portfolio of expert services to the pet food industry. Our analytical testing services for pet food testing are supported by integrated and robust quality systems that translate into value and brand equity.
