TORONTO — Ag Growth International Inc. (AGI) on May 2 shared its new-and-improved portfolio of flexible pet food manufacturing solutions. The company’s solutions can be applied to a variety of product formats, from kibble to fresh diets, and are backed by a network of experts offering end-to-end support.

“AGI’s commitment to excellence begins with its team and manufacturing capabilities,” said Brian Harder, vice president of global food. “AGI expanded its competencies in food over the years by acquiring industry-leading companies along with their talented group of experts and manufacturing facilities. We have taken the time to integrate the different companies and establish processes to provide a unified offering and experience to our customers. This, combined with global manufacturing, positions AGI as a premier partner for pet food manufacturers.”

The company offers material receiving, storage, pneumatic transfer, handling, dosing, mixing, grinding and sifting solutions to help dog and cat food producers adapt to changing market demands and priorities.

AGI’s pet food manufacturing solutions are integrated — including both standalone services and turnkey offerings — and supported by in-house and external teams with decades of food process engineering, GMP and regulatory experience, according to the company. These capabilities are intended to help pet food producers improve and expand upon their existing operations.

"When you choose AGI, customers gain a dedicated partner who works as an extension of their team, aligning with your goals, standards, budgets, and timelines,” shared Barry Harkin, vice president of global food sales. “Our focus is to work in a way that complements the customer’s current structure. We can deliver on select scopes of work or manage the entire project. This is our unique value proposition to the food industry, looking for the experience and capabilities of a large company, and the personalized service and agility of a smaller one.”

Services offered by AGI include consulting, engineering, project management and execution, equipment supply, millwrighting and installation, turnkey solutions, and after-sales support. The company also serves the bakery and confectionary, food and beverage, cereal and snack, pasta, meat and seafood, and grain and pulse industries.

“Our experienced team is eager to engage with potential pet food partners,” Harder added. “In an industry that is rapidly growing and evolving, AGI stands ready to provide expertise and agile solutions tailored to meet the unique needs of pet food manufacturers.”
