Ingredient Accreditation

At PLB International, we are firmly committed to providing superior quality food for our consumers and their pets. We guarantee that all ingredients used in our recipes are inspected for safety and wholesomeness.

To ensure this quality, we place great importance on the accreditation of our ingredient suppliers and the safety tests carried out on ingredients.

Quality Assurance from A to Z

We keep a close eye on every stage of production, with numerous control and monitoring points to guarantee the quality and safety of every batch of finished product.

Extrusion, for example, is one of the most important stages through which all our products pass to ensure perfection. Numerous parameters are constantly monitored to ensure the shape, hardness, density and integrity of every kibble we manufacture.

Rigour on all Points

We strictly follow the principles of the HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) program in every step of our process, from the receipt of raw materials to the storage of our finished products. We consider product and ingredient quality to be of crucial importance, and ensure that only products meeting our rigorous standards are shipped to our distribution chain. Our quality control experts do their utmost to ensure that our products are free from any risk of contamination, in order to provide animals with safe and healthy food.

In addition, we are also committed to sustainable practices to minimize our environmental impact, reflecting our social responsibility to our community and our planet.

In the agri-food industry, food safety is a top priority, and this applies equally to pet food and human food. FSSC 22000 certification is an internationally recognized food safety program that offers pet food manufacturers a rigorous framework for managing overall risks and ensuring the quality of the products.

HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) is a systematic method for ensuring food safety by identifying, assessing and controlling potential hazards throughout the food chain, implementing critical control points to prevent risks, and ensuring continuous monitoring to protect consumer health. This method is at the heart of our daily work at PLB.

Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) are essential in the pharmaceutical and food industries. They ensure product quality, safety, and efficacy, reduce health risks for consumers, ensure regulatory compliance, enhance the company's reputation, and build public trust in its products. GMP is critical for maintaining high standards in production and distribution.

Dolphin Safe certification guarantees that fish products are caught without harming dolphins. It protects these vulnerable species, promotes more responsible fishing methods and offers consumers an ethical option, contributing to the preservation of marine biodiversity and the conservation of ocean ecosystems.

Ocean Trust certification guarantees the sustainability of seafood products, preserving marine ecosystems and supporting responsible fisheries. It assures consumers of healthy, environmentally-friendly seafood products, contributing to ocean conservation and global food security.

The "Aliments préparés au Québec" certification is relevant because it promotes local food products, encourages support for Quebec farmers and businesses, stimulates the regional economy, reduces transportation-related emissions, promotes food freshness, and reinforces culinary identity and consumer confidence in the quality of Quebec products. It thus contributes to the province's sustainable development.

CTPAT (Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism) certification is essential for our manufacturing plant as it strengthens supply chain security, protects product integrity, and enhances our market credibility. This certification ensures we meet stringent security standards, safeguarding our business and customers while facilitating smoother international trade.
