What better day to celebrate our beloved furry friends than National Pet Day. And it's also a good time to recognize the significant role manufacturers like SPX Flow play in ensuring the health and well-being of cats and dogs everywhere.

From sourcing premium ingredients to rigorous quality control measures, SPX FLOW prioritizes the health and well-being of pets at every step of the production process.

"In recent years, we've seen a growing awareness among pet owners about the importance of nutrition in their pets' diets," said Adil Andaloussi, global director of Key Accounts at SPX Flow. "As a result, the demand for high-quality pet food has increased, driving innovation and advancements in pet food manufacturing."

SPX Flow shares that pet food manufacturing at the company involves a meticulous process that ensures the safety, quality, and nutritional integrity of kibble. Here are 5 key steps to manufacturing nutritiously rich pet food for cats and dogs:

  • Step 1: High quality ingredients are added-in and blended down into a slurry-like mixture.

  • Step 2: More extensive mixing at high speeds gradually then thickens the slurry.

  • Step 3: The milkshake-like consistency is baked, and the coagulation of meat proteins takes place.

  • Step 4: Efficient food dryers cool the kibble at a temperature and pace that preserves the ideal texture.

  • Step 5: To protect future batches, run the appropriate amount of cleaning fluid to clean and rinse the product line.

Whether it's crafting nutritious recipes, conducting quality testing, or innovating new products, manufacturers play a crucial role in enriching the lives of pets around the world.
