Families are looking for healthier alternatives to feed their furry animals. Recently, raw (BARF diet) or minimally processed pet food has become popular due to the health benefits it offers to dogs and cats.
High pressure processing (HPP) ensures food safety in the production of raw (non-thermally processed) pet food, while keeping all its organoleptic and nutritional properties intact, without the need for preservatives. Because of this, the variety of raw pet food products continue to grow, offering them a healthier and safer diet.
