Pets Choice invest in the future with DC Norris Jet Cook Processing System

Today we are delighted to announce an order from one of the UK’s leading pet food producers for a 12,000kgs p/h Jet Cook™ System for the production of wet pet food at their new UK facility.

Pet’s Choice have been in the pet food industry for over 135 years and their portfolio of brands offers a variety of products for pets and wild animals. Their brands include; Webbox, Tasty Bone, Meatiful, Spike’s World, Goodwyns, Davies, Oceanic and Vitakraft, as well as private label goods into major UK grocery, supermarkets and worldwide distribution.

This order comes following an initial meeting at the Anuga Foodtec Exhibition in March and trials at our Product Development Kitchen in June on two of their wet products.

The system will comprise of 3 x 6000ltr in-tank patented Jet Cook™ Systems, a single pass multi in-line Jet Cook System and a single pass Cooling System which is designed to emulsify and heat the product to 130°C, and then cool to 70°C in a single pass at a flow rate of 12,000ltrs. The system is all controlled by our Recipe Manager software, which makes it operator-friendly and ensures repeatability and traceability of products.

We are delighted to be chosen as partners by Pets Choice for this exciting new project, and we look forward to working closely with Peter Birch, Head of Operations and his team on the design, installation and commissioning of these systems.
