Worldwide approved quality

Quality tests

United Petfood guarantees the very best quality.

In order to be able to guarantee a high level of quality and standardisation, we work under the highest quality standards available. Each raw material delivered to our production plants is subject to an inspection, to ensure that the delivered product meets the required standards.

Both the raw materials and the finished products undergo quality monitoring throughout the production process. This is necessary to ensure full traceability throughout production. For every bag we sell, we can trace the origin of each single ingredient. Each of our productions sites has its own team of quality-control professionals to ensure high-quality products.
