As a pet food industry operator, responsibility plays an important role in the values and operating methods of our business. Feed production comes with major environmental and social impacts. Product liability, part of the manufacturing and sale of products, includes responsibility for nutritional properties, product safety, and accurate product information and marketing statements, for example.
In Finland, the production of pet food is regulated by the Feed Act, and we are a registered feed producer supervised by the Finnish Food Authority. Our company uses an officially approved own-check system, HACCP product safety plan, and an FSSC 22000 certified product safety system. In particular, this certification of our product safety system is proof that our company uses superior quality and safety requirements above and beyond the statutory minimum.
From the start, the mission statement of Eläinruokatehdas Lemmikki Oy has been to produce safe and high-quality domestic food for pets and wild birds that meets all their nutritional needs. In addition to being fully domestic, our products boast high quality, perfect purity, and excellent taste. For us, responsibility means producing food that is natural for each species and supports their health and happiness. In addition to happy and healthy pets, it is important for us to make products that pet owners can trust and use safely. Considering the nutritional quality and health effects of products at the design stage shows that our company takes its responsibility seriously when it comes to nutritious food. We choose our ingredients according to origin, production conditions, and responsibility and sustainability certification.
The health of all pets and even bird populations is affected by the quality of the products that are made available for purchase.
- We want to help small birds survive harsh Nordic winters by offering them nourishing, tasty, and easily digested food. We have also developed net-free bird food products to help birds feed more safely. Our bird food products are heat-treated and contain no seed coats, which helps keep feeding sites hygienic and tidy, reducing the risk of disease.
- We want to produce food for cats and dogs that is part of the natural diet of their species. We avoid unnecessary ingredients like grains and added sugars because they are irrelevant and even unhealthy for cats and dogs. We make raw food products for cats and dogs that are natural, delicious, and nutritious.
- We want to make our products from Finnish ingredients and support both industrial and agricultural employment in Finland.
