Pet Food Ingredient Bulk Storage

Fairview Mills knows that pet food and ingredients are often cheaper to transport in bags than loose products. Fairview Mills is a J-Six Enterprises company. This means that we can transload your bulk pet food ingredients and bag them as per your instructions. This allows you to easily move your products from raw product into ready-to use pet food. For example, you can send your whole corn to us and we will unload, mill, and package it as you require. The raw corn can now be used for the next step of the pet food processing process.


If you plan to pack your pet food ingredients into bags and totes you need to make sure they are quality-controlled. Our pet food ingredient packaging system includes running every pet food product through our lab to determine its moisture level, nutrient break down, and other metrics. Next, we vigorously sift your ingredients to get rid of as much dust and chaff. This helps improve the quality your pet food ingredients. Additionally, it ensures that a fifty-pound bag of pet food is full of your product and not with chaff. It will make it easier to track inventory accurately when you know that a 50-pound bag of corn Gluten is actually fifty pounds.
