Musti Group’s pet food factory Premium Pet Food Suomi Oy has been granted FSSC 22000 and ISO 14001 certifications

Musti Group’s pet food factory Premium Pet Food Suomi Oy, located in Lieto, Finland, has been granted the FSSC 22000 (Food Safety System Certificate) and the ISO 14001 environmental certificate. The FSSC 22000 certification model is used globally throughout the food chain to ensure food safety standards and processes, from food and feed manufacturers to packaging material manufacturers. ISO 14001 is the most recognized international standard for environmental management systems and is used worldwide. Both standards are voluntary for companies and further improve feed safety and environmental performance.

Emmi Riihikoski, Quality and NPD Manager at Premium Pet Food: ‘We want to offer pets domestic, high-quality and safe food. The certificates complement our long-standing commitment to quality assurance and environmental awareness. I would like to thank the entire factory staff for their commitment to these values and to the certification project.’

Musti Group is all about supporting the well-being of pets and their parents. The demand for local and sustainable products is on the rise and Musti Group is happy to respond to that. An increasing number of pet parents appreciate dog food that is locally produced and where environmental aspects have been taken into consideration in the production. The Lieto factory has a logistically optimal location regarding raw material supply, and the ingredients come mainly from local producers.

Marja-Leena Holopainen, CSR and Quality Manager at Musti Group: ‘At Musti Group, it is extremely important to us to be able to make life easier, safer and more fun for pets and their parents. An important part of this is to ensure the safety and responsibility of the feed. I am very proud that our own factory, Premium Pet Food, has achieved these important recognitions for the good work it has done to ensure feed safety and environmental considerations in its operations.’
