The Diamond Standard For Safety

We understand that when you feed Diamond CARE, you do so because you love your pet and take the decision of choosing their food seriously. Especially when your pet may require specialized nutrition. That is why nothing is more important to us than the safety of our ingredients and products.

Our manufacturing processes adhere to stringent and scientifically advanced food safety protocols. We constantly monitor and test our raw materials, production environment, processes and finished products. By continuously improving performance with the latest advancements in science and technology, we’ve developed a comprehensive food safety system that guides our processes and ensures the quality and safety of our products. Here is a brief overview of some facets of that system:

On-Site Product Testing

We test and monitor every aspect of the manufacturing process: pre-production, production and post-production.

Mycotoxin Control

Mycotoxins are toxic chemicals produced by fungi that can occasionally appear in grains. Therefore, no grain ingredients are allowed to enter our facilities without having been thoroughly analyzed. Additionally, we test all finished products prior to release.

Microbial Testing

We conduct over 1,300 microbiological tests every week. All topical palatants and probiotics must have a Certificate of Analysis and prove to be Salmonella-negative before submission to our facilities.

Water Purification

Our reverse osmosis water purification process ensures the water we use is free from microorganisms and any possible contaminants.

Air Quality Control

All facilities are segregated into zones to ensure separation of raw materials from finished products and equipped with HEPA®-filtered and ozone air-treated handling units.

Test and Hold Program

No product is released into distribution without adhering to the strict standards of our Test and Hold Program, in which product tests are conducted by a certified, independent laboratory.
