Poppy's Picnic and Tabby's Table awarded UKPF Raw Standard for quality
Poppy's Picnic is the first raw dog and cat food brand to be awarded the new quality and safety standard for raw pet food manufacturers.
The reason this matters so much is that until now there has simply not been a fully independent safety standard for raw pet food, so this is a groundbreaking, vital scheme.
The scope of the scheme includes plant design and maintenance, supplier assurance, safe product formulation, full traceability systems, safe handling, quality checks, microbiological testing, a programme of internal auditing, staff training and labelling compliance.
