We don’t just manage quality, we take it to the next level. 

Nutrace® is Trouw Nutrition’s company-wide management program that ensures feed-to-food quality and safety. 

Through Nutrace, we focus on all aspects of quality with an added emphasis on feed-to-food safety, setting uncompromising standards from pet food raw materials through to finished products and help to minimize our customers’ exposure to risks. 

The program has five pillars that represent the foundation upon which we safeguard the manufacturing of high-quality pet foods from high quality raw materials. 

Certified quality and food safety 

Certification against leading international safety and quality standards, and strict internal procedures form the basis of consistent sourcing, formulation, production, storage and logistics. 

Ingredients & supplier assessment 

Continuous ingredient and supplier assessment ensures that only safe and sustainable raw materials are used in the production of animal feeds and pet foods. 

Monitoring & control 

Global monitoring and control systems prevent the presence of undesirable substances in our products. 

Risk management  

Risk management procedures ensure an effective and professional response should the need arise. 

Tracking & tracing 

Tracking and tracing systems guarantee rapid, efficient information flows between Trouw Nutrition, our suppliers and our customers. This rapid flow of data is essential for implementing dynamic recall systems. 

Our Pet Food facility in St. Marys, ON is certified under FSSC 22000.
