Pet Foods

Pets are members of the family, and pet owners are increasingly seeking the same types of foods and ingredients for their pets that they purchase for themselves. This includes naturally sourced ingredients that they can count on to be safe and enjoyable for their pets.  The Kalsec® Agricultural Assurance program provides processors with the confidence that they are using ingredients grown and sourced to meet the highest quality standards.
