Webinar: Contamination control in pet food production

July 1, 2020
45 minutes

In this webinar we show you the importance of food safety in the pet food production and the measures which can be implemented to reduce the risk of product contamination. Learn how we can help you to validate and monitor your extrusion processes as a trusted kill step for bacteria. We will also show you digital solutions to achieve best final product moisture, as well as, hygienic equipment and plant design possibilities. 

In the last years, hundreds of pet food products had to be recalled due to microbiological contamination with Salmonella, Listeria, E. coli or others. Each of these incidents has had devastating consequences, not only on affected people and animals, but also on pet food producers. On one side, product recalls can lead to costs of USD 10 million* and on the other side, they harm the reputation of the brands and companies with reported median loss in corporate value of USD 240 million**.
