Superior rating from the American Institute of Baking

As you get to know us here on The Dish, you’ll find that safety and quality are two very important things to us when it comes to our pet food. So much so, in fact, that we were awarded a Superior rating for our pet food manufacturing plant from the American Institute of Baking (AIB).

TEXAS FARM PRODUCTS COMPANY AWARDED ‘SUPERIOR’ RATING
BY AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF BAKING

Texas Farm Products Company, maker of Precise Pet Products, was awarded a Superior rating for its pet food manufacturing plant from the American Institute of Baking (AIB).  The recognition is the highest level administered by the AIB, an international nonprofit organization that provides independent food safety inspections and audits for food processing, distribution, foodservice and retail industries worldwide.

“We conduct daily self-inspections and hold our pet food to the highest standards of safety – we are very proud of this recognition from the American Institute of Baking,” said Richard ‘Kirk’ Young, Precise Pet Products executive vice president.  “This year, we have diligently directed our efforts towards enacting quality control monitoring and reporting, and have installed new equipment that results in higher quality pet food.”

The American Institute of Baking rates manufacturing facilities on the adequacy of food safety programs, pest control, operational methods, personnel practices as well as maintenance and cleaning practices. An AIB coordinator was put in place at the Texas Farm Products Company facility to manage the AIB program and ensure additional safety of its products.

Texas Farm Products Company, maker of high-quality, natural and holistic pet foods, produces all of its pet products in the United States.
