Pet owners increasingly demand high-quality food and care products for their pets, which has begun to blur the lines between food and supplements for humans and pets. This trend has put significant pressure on original equipment manufacturers (OEM) in the pet products sector to improve their processes and enhance the quality of the goods they produce.

At Readco Kurimoto, we specialize in designing and manufacturing advanced industrial mixing equipment. We can provide pet food and product OEMs with the means to consistently and efficiently mix high-viscosity doughs, pastes, and slurries. Along with our industrial controls partner, Melfi Technologies, Inc., we can enable superior quality control, track and trace production, and enhanced formula and recipe management for pet product manufacturing operations.

Pet Food Applications, Key Standards, and Other Capabilities

All manufacturing operations that produce perishable products have a contamination risk, and the pet food supply chain is no different. Pet food OEMs and suppliers have a responsibility to take steps that will mitigate the risk of dangerous microbial contamination in their products. Failing to do so can result in injury or death for beloved customer pets and result in extensive brand damage and extensive recalls for the manufacturer. 

With fully enclosed industrial mixing equipment from Readco Kurimoto, pet sector OEMs can manufacture their products with no batch-to-batch variations and minimized contamination risk from external sources. We design and build our equipment in accordance with stringent standards set forth by:

  • American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)
  • U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA)
  • Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO)

Before finalizing any sale, we ensure that our industrial mixing equipment will perform reliably in your operation. The Readco Kurimoto team will conduct extensive laboratory testing to determine that our machines can scale to any capacity you need and that they integrate seamlessly into your other processes. 

Thanks to this testing capability, we have a 100% success rate for identifying and selling industrial mixing products that work as intended in their final application. The efficiency improvements provided by our mixing equipment help users to eliminate excess storage requirements and support Just-in-Time manufacturing processes. 

Readco takes all customer confidentiality agreements very seriously. If you haven’t heard of us, it’s because we don’t talk about our customers or the specific products our solutions have helped them produce. Generally speaking, however, we have supported manufacturing operations for a variety of pet products, including:

  • Biscuit treat doughs
  • Creme fillings
  • Meat emulsions
  • Encapsulation of medicine in veterinary pharmaceuticals
  • Textured vegetable protein pet food

With industrial mixing solutions from Readco, you can improve the traceability of your products. We integrate advanced controls to monitor each input, helping you to improve the precision of your track and trace efforts. If you’re still not convinced, here are 10 reasons that continuous processing is better than batch mixing.
