Precision implement supplier Mettler Toledo has released HACCP in the Pet Food Industry, a white paper analyzing worldwide market and legislative changes involving petfood safety. The paper outlines food safety challenges, and shows how product inspection tools can provide confidence for both consumers and regulators that the products coming off the production line are as safe for pets as they can possibly be.
Topics include the HACCP (hazard analysis and critical control points) approach to managing food safety, food safety compliance and legislation, and choosing the most appropriate product inspection solution for different applications. On the market side, it discusses consumer awareness of food safety issues and the emotional nature of buying decisions.
