Lamb meal is a typical ingredient that is an excellent source of high-quality protein and other essential nutrients. IQI specializes in supplying lamb meal as a high-quality pet food ingredient and offers year-round availability of this seasonal product sourced from Australia and New Zealand. IQI’s lamb meal is made from high-quality side-stream products of the lamb meat processing industry. Therefore, making it a sustainable pet food ingredient.

Ensuring the highest quality lamb meal

At IQI, we only supply clean lamb meal of the highest quality. Our lamb meal departments in Coevorden (Europe) and Tracy (North America) specialize in the screening and cleaning of lamb meal. Before processing the lamb meal, as a safety precaution, we firstly check the quality of the product when ingredients are delivered to our distribution and warehousing facilities. The near infra-red machine checks the protein, fat, ash, and moisture content.

IQI’s strict supplier approval

Besides our own quality control and processing, IQI has a strict supplier approval program to ensure that suppliers adhere to our requirements. Important aspects that guarantee quality in the processing of lamb meal include the right grinding sizes for meat meal products, and the correct installation to prevent salmonella contamination. IQI will carry out pre-audits and on-site visits to determine in which areas suppliers need help to develop or improve their quality programs, make recommendations, and show what is needed to deliver the high quality expected by today’s pet food customers.
