CENNAMO PET FOOD

TECHNOLOGY AT THE SERVICE OF NOURISHMENT

 

Cennamo s.r.l. Industria Pet Food is a factory specializes in the production of food for dogs and cats, with very high technological value based on a modern and advanced productive process, that is the Extrusion of raw materials which present themselves to our eyes in the latest phase as “DRY KIBBLES”, that means with a quantity of water that, generally does not exceed 10% of product. The extrusion is a high hygienic and rapid preparative process, where, through temperature, water, water vapour and mechanical work it is possible to assemble a product.

Cennamo s.r.l. has three extrusion lines of which one screw extruder and two latest advanced Swiss technology two screw extruders. Thanks to them our company place itself among the first producers in Italy and Europe. The extrusion allows to make foodstuffs rich in proteins and carbohydrates and to improve the nutritional characteristics (digestibility and palatability).

THE AUTOMATION

The whole industrial complex is based on the most complete and advanced automatic management of machineries. Workers only deal with the management and the control, especially of points defined critical. From receiving of goods to the weighing, mixing and grinding of raw materials until extrusion without undervalue the drying and the greasing, and aslo packaging and palletization, all takes place through the computerized management of the single operation, that is reached through the predetermined input of data (products formulations, type of shapes and colours, type of bag used and so on).

RAW MATERIALS

All raw materials used are exclusively and scientifically certified. We do not use any raw materials whose origin and source are unknown and those of which we do not have the absolutely certainty that, in each case, we will able to identify the supplier, lot, date of delivery and quantity bought. In addition to the certification of raw materials, the factory is provided with its own internal laboratory in order to verify the dependability (technical features, proteins, moisture, ashes and so on) and analyse schematized samples, portion of lot with certain frequency to obtain a product in compliance with the product preset. For further and maniacal assurance of our product quality, CENNAMO S.R.L. has already established convention with an external laboratory of the highest order that, in addition to the control of the finished products, it will periodically provide a calibration service of laboratory equipment, in order to be sure about the reliability of samples analysed.

THE HAMMER MILLS

The secret of an excellent kibble is the grinding. Our firm has three downstream hammer mills for an optimal grinding that allow the subdivision of raw materials into very small particles that will undergo better the process of cooking in order to be highly digestible and assimilable. Food for dogs and cats are normally classified depending on the quality of proteins and fats without taking into consideration the results of the whole production process: the metabolizable Energy, that is the quantity of product that actually is assimilated and transformed by our dogs and cats.

THE MICRO INGREDIENTS

The micro ingredients dosing and mixing system is also done by a computer: thanks to this system the right input, both temporal and quantitative, of those which are named minor raw materials, but that actually represent the core of each formulation, is totally guaranteed with maximum precision.

THE FAT COATERS

We have three fatting lines, two of them are provided with rotating double drum and the other one with a modern fat coater called “Vacuum coater” which allows to obtain a better and uniform insertion of fats in the kibbles. The technology used is the total absence of oxygen during the insertion of fats, in this way kibbles are similar to common bath sponges, they compress themselves absorbing up to inside fats and then, they retake their normal shape and continue their manufacturing way. With this system, used only in the best food on the market, the imput of “DIGESTS”, oils and fats results in line with the most modern teaching in the nutrition field of small pets.

THE DRYING

The dryer is of fundamental importance in the pet food production: it avoids moulds attack and guarantees the quality of finished product over time. Cennamo s.r.l. uses a “unique” dryer in Italy both for dimension and technology. Its dimensions (about 15 linear meters per 9 meters of high) and numbers of passages (4 conveyors) guarantee that the product come out as required and result of excellent quality. Besides this latter, there are other two steam dryers for a slow and gradual cooking. At last but not least, there are the several sieves, magnets and sensors placed in the whole extrusion line to guarantee a safe product and that are, qualitatively speaking, beyond the normal standard on the market.

THE PACKAGING

Our four state of the art packaging lines allow to pack from 100 grams over 20 kilos, keeping a perfect endurance against parasites, light and air to preserve better and longer our products all over the world.
