Pet food and animal feed is a carefully prepared mixture of ingredients created to provide your pet or animal with the balanced nutrients for proper growth and maintenance. Over nine hundred agricultural ingredients and co-products are used in the customization process of food tailored for animal and pet diets. Ingredients may include wheat, barley, corn, distiller’s grain, fruits, forage, minerals, sorghum, vegetables and vitamins. Animal source and vegetation co-products are used in the formulation of food as well.
It may surprise you, but in the United States pet food is among the most highly regulated of all food products at both the federal and state levels. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) is the federal governing agency that regulates your dog’s favorite box of treats, bag of food, can of cat food, or snacks. The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) requires that all animal foods, like human foods, be safe to eat, produced under sanitary conditions, contain no harmful substances, and be truthfully labeled.
Pet food safety starts with reliable suppliers. Ingredients are weighed, tested and analyzed to ensure their quality and safety. When handling and transporting food products, such as grain, meat, poultry and dairy, there is a chance of contamination in the processing area. BAG Corp’s food-grade bulk bag containers and liners are engineered exactly for this type of application.
BAG Corp has been proactive towards delivering a manufacturing process that delivers the cleanest, highest quality bulk bag products we can produce. Audits are conducted against the Standards for Food Contact Packaging, rather than the more lenient Standards for Nonfood Contact Packaging.
Our standard bulk bag fabric is 100% recyclable, food-grade woven polypropylene fabric, treated for ultraviolet resistance for limited outside storage and engineered for the rated capacity of the container. Fabric selection is dependent on certain performance requirements. If you would like more information on BAG Corp’s food-grade bulk bags, you can contact a BAG Corp sales representative to discuss your specific fabric and liner needs.
