Industry partner sets bar for pet food safety with new production facility

Industry partner Iron Will Raw has announced today its expansion move into a 12,000 sq.ft. state-of-the-art production facility in St. Catharines. The new facility was constructed to meet federal food safety guidelines set out by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) for human food production.

“This plant will allow the company to become an industry leader in meeting the highest possible food safety standards for raw pet food manufacturers,” says Iron Will Raw President Matt Bonanno.

Iron Will Raw Inc. has partnered with Niagara College’s Research & Innovation division to develop and implement a HACCP-compliant food safety program to ensure that food safety is the number one priority in their products, along with high-quality natural ingredients.  

“I am excited to hear this news about Iron Will’s new facility. When the team and I first met Patti and Matt, they were setting a new bar for pet food safety. Since then, we have collaborated on two projects and they even hired our Culinary Innovation & Food Science student who worked on the project for his summer co-op term,” says Kristine Canniff, Project Manager, Canadian Food & Wine Institute Innovation Centre.

“This will be a state of the art facility with food products that will keep our furry friends as healthy as we are when it comes to safe, quality food.”
