To meet your pathogen reduction goals, Sterigenics offers radiation-based gamma processing through our network of facilities located around the world.

Pathogen reduction for animal feed includes all types of products that provide nutrition and treats. Pet treats and animal nutrition companies want to reduce bacteria and pathogens to improve animal safety, as well as to keep the people safe who come in contact with these treats and feed products.
Reduce pathogens in animal and pet supplements
Radiation-based gamma processing kills microorganisms through a non-invasive process that penetrates several types of packaging, which means the pet treats, as an example, are not removed from their packaging. The process is safe. There are no residuals left on the product, which makes gamma irradiation ideal for pathogen reduction in animal and pet supplements.
