Petfood is made of animal and vegetable raw materials, vitamins, mineral add-in, and texture agents and flavors. These products qualified as wet are sold in the form of pâté with pieces, snacks, or food with jelly or sauce.
The special feature of petfood concerns their best-before date, which must be the latest possible. This requires applying high sterility values while preserving flavors, minerals and vitamins, and with a perfect integrity of all types of packaging, including flexible containers.
STERITECH can optimize and shorten this in-depth processing, while ensuring optimal sterilization at all times. We recommend our Air/Steam process to ensure fast and careful processing, with water and energy savings. The real time back-pressure control of our retorts and continuous systems will enable you to sterilize all your products with all types of packaging.
