Many dry pet food producers have a diverse customer base and need to produce several different premium and super premium products, also with high fresh meat and fat content.
Manufacturers face challenges when producing products for pets of different sizes and breeds, with different diets, or with a variety of health issues.
They therefore need flexibility on final products, recipes and ingrediencies, flexibility on final product shape and stability, flexibility on raw material quality.
GEA can provide any process solutions with one extrusion line.
Dental sticks for dogs
Dental sticks are healthy treats for dogs, developed with the main function of keeping teeth clean, breath fresh and gums strong and healthy.
It is therefore very important to create dental stick formats that are particularly pleasant, both in texture and shape.
The use of different raw materials allows the development of dental sticks with the desired consistency and chewability; the extrusion technology enables to transform the raw material into products with specific shapes, appropriate for the teeth of any dog.
GEA's production lines contain all the technology needed to produce the most valued dental stick for dogs.
Pillows: a moment of enjoyment for our pets
We humans know that food is not only nutrition but also entertainment and satisfaction, and in GEA we have always developed technologies that allow us to create this type of snack for humans.
Co-extrusion technology is one of these technologies, developed over many years, and now we can apply it to our pets in the shape of pillows.
Crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside, pillows allow us to create a product that our pets love and that can also become functional for their health with the use of nutritional ingredients such as vitamins and salts.
