We know that not all dog food ingredients are created equally and that there are many ingredient suppliers to choose from.

That's why we're extremely selective when establishing a relationship with a new one. Our dog food ingredient suppliers play an important role in the creation of each Purina Beyond® recipe, so we ensure from the start that they meet our expectations for ingredient specification, product safety, hygiene and good manufacturing practice. We are proud of our quality assurance standards.


Our 5 Steps for Properly Choosing a Supplier of Pet Food Ingredients


1. Identify suppliers to source ingredients

2. Conduct an audit of a supplier's facility

3. Study the integrity of their ingredients through regulatory food safety and toxicology reviews

4. Test each ingredient prior to purchase through Nestlé Analytical labs

5. Use near infrared technology to 'fingerprint' or evaluate select ingredients for purity, protein and moisture levels
