Douglas Machines Pet Food Processing Equipment 

 For 40 years, Douglas Machines has worked alongside pet food companies involved in the production, importation/wholesaling, and retailing of pet food.

An effective container cleaning program is essential for every pet food manufacturer and processor.  Why?  Because consumers love their pets and demand the same high level of cleaning standards that they have in the food and beverage industry.  After all, nothing is too good for our four legged family members!

Wet food, dry food, kibble, cooked, plant-based, organic, raw.  Pet food manufacturing and processing facilities have to be flexible when working with different ingredients and producing various blends. Washing and sanitizing play big roles in preventing bacteria and pathogen cross-contamination with consistent, repeatable cleaning practices. 

Replacing manual washing procedures and/or outdated equipment is paramount, along with ease and speed of equipment dissassembly. Success means less downtime and more throughput by creating a system dedicated to container or equipment parts cleaning.  The potential for improvement is vast in terms of not only cost savings, but labor and time.

Pet food companies trust Douglas with their container washing needs because we provide maximum productivity, decreased energy, chemical and water costs, increased shelf life for equipment, tools and utensils, and reduced manpower for regular washing.
