Storing Pet Food Ingredients

How are ingredients for pet food kept in storage? Almost all pet food ingredients are dry products that can be kept in a food-safe setting at room temperature. Bulk storage options for ingredients include Gaylord boxes, big totes, and super-sacks. Pallets are usually used to store them in 25–50-pound bags. Pet food ingredients are frequently safe to stack since they are compact and thick. Another excellent option for storing food ingredients is racking storage. 
Murphy Logistics is a dependable fulfillment partner for brands of dog food, pet supplies, and other products. Recently, we expanded our presence in Kansas City with the opening of a new logistics center, offering an additional 315,000 square feet of warehouse space equipped with the latest logistics and warehouse technology. With a strategic central location and proximity to critical infrastructure, including rail routes and interstate highways, this expansion aims to meet the growing demand for Murphy’s services. The facility provides added flexibility and room for growth for Murphy’s customers seeking storage solutions for pet food warehouses.

Pet Food Ingredients and Safety

When handling food products, whether intended for human or companion animal consumption, specific guidelines and protocols need to be followed. To guarantee the safety of consumption and that these products do not affect the client or, in this case, their pets, all logistics and fulfillment processes must adhere to these criteria from beginning to end. 
Logistics providers must operate pet food distribution warehouses, storage facilities, transport vehicles, and individual delivery personnel that meet the regulations set forth by the FDA, USDA, and their equivalents in other nations. Murphy holds logistics certifications in several areas related to industry safety, food safety, and food security. We are a great option for your pet food warehouse and distribution needs.
