1)    Is there a need to produce pet food for various age stages?

Kittens and puppies have different nutritional needs as compared to their adult stage. With different types of food ingredients included. For instance, at the early stage of growing up, our furry pets need more energy-dense foods that are high in calories to support their tremendous growth.

At about 18 months of age, they will turn into adult cats and dogs, thus during the short growing-up stage, essential nutrients are needed to support proper development. Darin suggests that your formulation the pet food may include goat milk, a higher percentage of animal meal to enhance the protein content to build bones and support mind development.

Darin Pet Food Production Lines

Dry food and Semi-moist food are produced by an extruder, just like human processed food. For example, pasta and cereal. The cooked ingredients are pushed through the holes and cut by the die plate.

Further down the process, it will be transferred into a dryer to dry and remove the excess moisture. Next, is the flavoring drum to add flavor to finished products. Once it was cooled, it will be evenly packaged into different packaging bags.

Considering a diverse mix of ingredients, these are what your target market is looking for. Ensure your formula is well balanced and complete meeting a pet’s total nutritional need. You should include carbohydrates, protein, fats, minerals, and vitamins.

4)   Guidelines on storing and packaging your mass pet food production?

Store your productions at a dry, cool, and off-the-ground location after processing. Wait until the products cool down, then process on the packaging. As if the packaging is sealed when the products was still warm, it will be prone to spoilage.
