    Research Facility

    We conduct researches not only to develop safer pet food but also to meet our clients’ needs in areas such as enhancing palatability and functions, and using new materials.
    Major equipment such as Clean Bench, Dry Oven, Incubator, Water Activity Calculator, and M% Measuring Instruments are used by the research team to enhance the quality of feed and treat products as well as to develop new materials.
    We are currently pursuing a range of remarkable research projects to comprehensively enhance the life quality of pets.
