FORT COLLINS, COLO. — PetDine received a high Safe Quality Food (SQF) audit rating from the Safe Quality Food Institute (SQFI) at the end of January. The pet food manufacturer’s Windsor, Colo., manufacturing and warehouse facilities received a 94 out of 100 rating.

Through its state-of-the-art manufacturing technology and equipment, PetDine offers co-manufacturing capabilities for a variety of baked treats, semi-moist treats, long goods, and nutritional blends, liquids and powders. ADM acquired majority ownership of the co-manufacturer in 2021.

PetDine’s Colorado facilities, which include a 105,000-square-foot manufacturing plant that recently opened in December 2022, passed SQFI’s rigorous audit, which examined the company’s production processes. According to PetDine, the high SQF rating demonstrates its high commitment to product safety and quality.

“The certification process is an important factor in delivering on PetDine’s ‘Made Better’ promise to clients served across the globe,” said Amy McCarthy, vice president of ADM Pet Nutrition North America. “Earning a high rating is a significant achievement and demonstrates the team’s dedication to producing the highest quality pet supplements and treats for clients to bring to market.”

The Colorado facilities join PetDine’s other SQF certified facility. The company’s original facility in Harvard, Ill., has been certified since 2019 and received an "Excellent" SQF rating in May 2022.

“PetDine contracts with clients on a complete range of highly customized pet treat and supplement products for domestic sale and export around the world,” said James Gong, ADM quality and food safety manager at PetDine. “Participating in the SQF program assures clients their products comply with the highest possible global food safety standards for pet product manufacturing.”
