Agriculture and Food Pet Food Testing
Pet food testing from SGS ensures product quality and compliance with the standards of the American Association of Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) and regulations of government bodies.
Our pet food analysis covers nutrients, vitamins, minerals, pathogens such as salmonella, and contaminants including heavy metals, mycotoxins, plus melamine and its derivatives. We perform sensory and physical evaluations, plus label reviews and, for products such as dog, cat and bird feed, composition analysis.
By ensuring you comply with national and international guidelines, we help maintain your reputation as a responsible manufacturer, supplier or retailer of cat and dog food, and other animal feed.
With a network of over 1,000 offices and laboratories – some of which are part of AAFCO’s proficiency testing programme – we offer you a global/local service. Our experts are aware of international regulations and familiar with local laws and trading conditions, and laboratories are ISO 17025 accredited.
Through rigorous product testing, we can offer you quality assurance at every stage of the supply chain. We can help you to enforce strict specifications for material supplies, to perform routine testing of all incoming materials, and to implement vendor assurance schemes. We can test at an early stage, for specific raw materials, then again as the food is being made, and finally analyse and verify your finished products.
