Nutriment Raw is the latest supplier to be officially certified under the UK Pet Food’s Raw Pet Food Certification Scheme.
The scheme is a new standard for raw pet food manufacturers in the UK developed by independent certification scheme experts KIWA on behalf of trade association UK Pet Food. The standard is designed to provide industry-leading quality and best practice to support the safe production of raw pet food within the UK, covering plant design and maintenance, supplier assurance, safe product formulation, full traceability systems, safe handling, quality checks, microbiological testing, internal auditing, staff training and labelling compliance.
Nutriment Raw was awarded the status following a full audit earlier this month.
Managing director Martin Heal said: “We are one of only four companies that have achieved this high standard certification so far and I’m extremely proud of the team and all the hard work internally that has gone on to consistently raise the standards of commercially prepared raw pet food in the UK.
“We are fully committed to producing the highest quality, ethically prepared raw food for dogs and cats in the marketplace and our focus on high-quality standards of processes and quality of ingredients has met all the criteria set out by UK Pet Food’s certification scheme.”
Founded in 2013, Nutriment now produces in excess of 1.3 million raw meals per month.
