And now for a little bit more information on Diamond Naturals and Diamond Pet Foods.

Diamond Pet Foods is committed to safe food manufacturing and processing, and that's appealing to any pet parent.  Did you know that the company is family-owned and privately-held? Just like the company I work for!  And just like our family-owned and privately-held business, Diamond Pet Foods prides itself on only manufacturing dog food that the company's owners would feed their own pets. Quite honestly, I'd much rather do business with a "mom and pop" company (even a big, successful one) than a publicly-shared organization, wouldn't you? 

Stating "nothing is more important than" the safety of its products, Diamond Pet Foods adheres to stringent and scientifically-advanced food safety protocols.  Raw materials are constantly monitored and tested for things like mycotoxin, oxidative stability, ingredient nutritional tests and finished product nutritional tests.  All employees are also trained for safety. The company's air quality and water quality systems and state-of-the-art facilities are second to none.

  Leading-edge manufacturing technologies have been incorporated into the Diamond Pet Foods manufacturing plants to ensure a safe, 
high-quality product is produced. This technology includes equipping each production area with HEPA®-filtered and ozone air-treated 
handling units to ensure clean, treated air is utilized in segregated zones. 

A "test-and-hold" program provides very strict standards before a product is released into distribution.  No product manufactured by Diamond Pet Foods is released into distribution without passing the Test and Hold Program, in which product tests are conducted by a certified, independent lab.  (No, not a Labrador Retriever... a laboratory, silly!).  Tests are conducted on samples that are collected hourly, and every sample is kept for a time equal to the guaranteed shelf life of the product, typically 12 months.

                                                                      The Diamond Pet Foods facilities incorporate the latest technology and manufacturing processes. 
                                     Every step of the process is carefully monitored, tracked and measured to ensure the quality and safety of every product made. 

Made in America, by American workers, Diamond Pet Foods has four manufacturing facilities, all located in the U.S.:  Missouri, South Carolina, and two in California.  Employees are offered a great benefits package and the company boasts a very low turnover rate (hey, family-owned businesses are like that!).
