Our Quality and Safety Standards For Dog Food
We are proud to say that we own and run the factory in which our food is made. This means that we take responsibility for monitoring every step in the preparation of our product, helping us to provide you and your pet with quality pet food.
Why is quality pet food important?
At Purina® we strive to make quality pet food that you can trust. We carry on this philosophy into the creation of Beyond® pet food. You can rest assured that a bag of Beyond is not only a quality dog food but also a nutritious and made with selected natural ingredients.
We go above and beyond® with our quality and safety measures
At Purina®, we have a team of more than 400 global scientists who aim to make discoveries that better the lives of pets everywhere. Our colleagues working in quality assurance, research and development are always on the look-out for the latest available science and information regarding ingredient safety.
We also have scientists who are tasked with researching any known or suspected safety issues and informing other team members about their research. All of this allows us to create high quality pet food that you can trust.
The Protection of Beyond® Pet Food
The quality and safety of our products is our top priority, and our quality assurance procedures are among the strictest in the industry. Our sophisticated tracking system ensures raw ingredients are tracked from time of receipt at our plants, through their inclusion in finished products, and on to the shelf in store.
What’s more, to ensure that our high quality dog food meets the standards you expect, we:
- Require each of our ingredient supplier to meet our stringent standards for ingredient specifications, product safety, hygiene and manufacturing practices. For more detail on these standards, see our Nestlé Supplier Code.
- Regularly audit our suppliers to ensure compliance with this Nestlé Supplier Code and to apply a philosophy of continuous improvement.
- We adhere to over 50 pieces of legislation which cover the production of good quality dog food, and also follow the good practice guidance issued by the European Pet Food Industry association (FEDIAF).
