CONSTANT TECHNOLOGICAL IMPROVEMENT TO THE BASIS OF QUALITY AND NATURALNESS OF OUR PRODUCTS.
In Farmina we believe that technology can be a friend, especially when it becomes a tool to improve the quality of our products. We are always looking for the latest innovations that will allow us to pursue our mission: to create natural foods whose effectiveness is scientifically validated. In the production of our food, we use two unique technologies and special packaging that improve the quality of our products while preserving the naturalness.
The twin screw extruder is mainly adopted in the field of human food production (such as pasta, cookies, etc.), ensures better gelatinization of starch, with an increase in terms of mixing and baking of 20-25% compared to single-screw systems. The final result is a lower denaturing of nutrients resulting in increased digestibility of our food.
Integration of the lipids (fats) in the product is achieved using the Vacuum Coater system, ensuring better and homogeneous distribution throughout entire kibbles. This technology allows us to include also vitamins at lower temperatures preventing thermal stress and obtaining a longer duration of their effectiveness – Farmina’s concept of Long Life Vitamins.
PROTECTIVE ATMOSPHERE PACKAGING: Great attention is paid to the moment of packaging, using nitrogen, a volatile gas that dissipates once you open the bag but within the packaged product, replaces the oxygen avoiding fat oxidation and therefore rancidity. A technological solution also used in human foods and a technology that guarantees the preservation of nutrients over time, thanks to a complete isolation of the kibbles from the outside world.
STRICT CONTROLS FOR A PRODUCT TO THE MAXIMUM OF THE ORGANOLEPTIC AND NUTRITIONAL QUALITY.
The quality control system is very important in the food industry as it ensures customers to have the best product in terms of organoleptic quality, freshness and integrity. Our quality control system monitors the entire production cycle. Starting from suppliers selection, passing through raw material and production cycle controls, we finish our strict monitoring on the finished product just before shipping and further controls.
Farmina invests heavily in continuous control of quality. Our team regularly checks all raw materials and, in the same way, each production batch is subject to in-depth analysis that can span up to 18 months.
According to a strict audit process, all raw materials come from certified suppliers. The production runs are all tracked, which allows Farmina to intervene promptly when it is necessary and reconstruct the history of each package of food. In addition, the NIR (Near InfraRed) analysis of the raw materials and finished products, allows complete real-time monitoring of both incoming raw materials and outgoing finished products. Our internal laboratory is also supported by outside laboratories for all aspects related to food safety according to a strict default analysis plan. In terms of controls, we pay special attention to all activities related to ensure the absence of mycotoxins and aflatoxins.
JUST IN TIME
A PRODUCT ALWAYS FRESH AND THE MAXIMUM OF THE ORGANOLEPTIC AND NUTRITIONAL QUALITIES.
In Farmina we have developed a working method that allows us to give our pets a freshly cooked attractive product: the Just in Time. Our food is produced only after being ordered from our partners this means that we serve our 4 legged friends with products that are always fresh and at best of their nutritional and organoleptic qualities. This process allows us to deliver from our resellers a food, on average, only 4 days old. No deposit, no stock thanks to an efficient working method that allows us to offer high quality products.
