Quality Assurance

Both Meateor Foods plants have the highest possible Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) audit grade for a pet food ingredient facility.

Quality is a critical compliance issue and includes:

  • A Risk Management Plan – incorporating HACCP and GMP principles.
  • Temperature and visual checking of all raw materials on arrival.
  • Materials stored in controlled conditions until production begins.
  • Rapid temperature reduction using plate freezing technology to maintain freshness.
  • All product is shipped on wooden pallets to ensure no wood or nail contamination occurs during devanning at port of entry.
  • Near Infra Red analytical equipment ensures materials meet specification.
  • Three metal detectors, including one as a final step before palletising.
  • Sorting belts allow inspection for non metallic contamination.
  • Year round in-house auditing by a full time QA manager in addition to independent scheduled and unscheduled audits by MPI staff.
  • Continuous staff training on quality, safety and process changes.
