Baker Perkins holds a unique position in the baked pet food and treat market as the only company capable of supplying complete production lines, from mixing through to baking.
Particularly heavy doughs are required for these products, requiring especially robust equipment to mix, feed and form the dough into the required shapes. Baking also has characteristics unique to pet products.
Over 100 years experience in food engineering has enabled us to build an unrivalled expertise in these key processes in baked pet food and treat production. That technology base is backed by process familiarity enabling us to specify exactly the right system for each end product requirement.
Rotary moulding, extrusion and sheeting are all options following the mixing process: we identify the technique that suits the individual application. Baker Perkins systems provide the flexibility to make a broad variety of attractive shapes, colors and flavors.
Baker Perkins’ best-in-class machines are familiar throughout the baked pet treat industry. All are backed by Baker Perkins’ comprehensive aftermarket services, including die roll design and manufacture, a lab facility for developing and testing products, OEM parts and 24/7 field service support.
Innovation is a key to success in the pet food and treat market, and as an alternative to baked products, our twin screw cooker extruders are used extensively in the production of dry food. Baker Perkins’ co-extrusion systems and extruded bar technology can also produce a unique and extensive range of center-filled pet food products: these consist of cream or paste, in an almost unlimited variety of colors and flavors, surrounded by a cereal outer.
