Pet food

For many years, Poortershaven has held a leading market position as a supplier of colour pigments and other products for the pet food market. Through our experience and technical knowledge, we can help you to substantiate the effect of these products in pet food production. Our products are of value for the following types of businesses and applications:

Dry feed production: in this process, dyes are used to colour the pellets. Other products can be used to improve manure, reduce the odour and to lower the risk of mycotoxins. Our products are also suitable as a pellet binder or to improve a product's flow properties.

Wet feed production: in this process, colourings for example are used to colour sauces and other products. Our products also help to thicken the sauces.

Treats: colourings are used to colour snacks and biscuits. Other products are used as an odour binder in, for example, dental sticks. Our products are also used to improve the baking or extrusion process. 

Premix production: in this process, colourings are used to colour the feed through the premix. Other products are used as a free flower, anti-caking agent, filling agent or carrier for liquids. In addition, our products supply minerals.
