ELMIRA PET ADVANTAGE
The manufacturing process begins at our Mixing Plant (dry mix operation), with quality approved ingredients and stringent procedures. Our facility was expanded and refurbished in late 2014, highlighted by a 13,000-square foot centrally-located, dedicated ingredient warehouse and receiving area. We added 18 dry-ingredient silos, bringing the total to over 100. New hammer mills were installed to improve grind, which supports processing and aids with nutrient absorption and palatability. Material handling was maximized with updated equipment and support systems, while proprietary software was installed to increase automation and tracking.
This expansion plan took a year to fully integrate. All of the planning, hard work, and diligence netted great results. This includes enhanced food safety, which is integral to all facets of our operations. The dedicated ingredient warehouse results in less handling of material, which translates to decreased risk around food safety and security. The new and refurbished areas are designed with more space flexibility to support the ease of sanitation and cleaning.
At Elmira Pet Products, we have always firmly believed that food safety is an evolution. We remain committed to the journey.
