PetDine’s Colorado Facilities Earn High Safe Quality Food Rating

The facilities passed a rigorous audit of all production processes to earn the certification.




(PRESS RELEASE) FORT COLLINS, CO — The Safe Quality Food Institute (SQFI) has awarded PetDine’s Colorado manufacturing and warehouse facilities a 94 out of 100 Good Safe Quality Food (SQF) audit rating. The facilities, which include the recently opened 105,000-square-foot Windsor, CO, plant, passed a rigorous audit of all production processes to earn the certification, demonstrating a high-level commitment to safety and quality for its clients’ pet products.

Through state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment and technologies, PetDine offers clients a portfolio of baked treats, semi-moist treats, long goods, blends, soft chews, liquids and powders. ADM acquired a 75% ownership stake in PetDine in September 2021.

“The certification process is an important factor in delivering on PetDine’s ‘Made Better’ promise to clients served across the globe,” said Amy McCarthy, vice president, ADM Pet Nutrition – North America. “Earning a high rating is a significant achievement and demonstrates the team’s dedication to producing the highest quality pet supplements and treats for clients to bring to market.”

Food processors, retailers, brand owners and food service providers worldwide recognize SQF certification as a benchmark for food safety and quality. To be an “SQF-Certified Site” involves following a comprehensive food safety management system and participating in annual audits to establish a thorough and sound food safety program. PetDine’s original Harvard, IL, manufacturing facility has also been SQF certified since 2019, with a recent Excellent SQF rating in May of 2022.

“PetDine contracts with clients on a complete range of highly customized pet treat and supplement products for domestic sale and export around the world,” said James Gong, ADM quality & food safety manager for its PetDine business. “Participating in the SQF program assures clients their products comply with the highest possible global food safety standards for pet product manufacturing.”

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
