Codes of Practice & Guidelines

Pet owners feeding a commercially prepared pet food (from a member of UK Pet Food) can have complete confidence they are addressing all their pet’s nutritional needs. Members of UK Pet Food follow strict guidelines when making pet foods.

These Nutritional Guidelines (often called Codes) are produced by FEDIAF (the European Pet Food Industry) and they detail the nutritional needs of cats and dogs at varying life stages. They are regularly updated to include the latest nutritional research and are peer reviewed by independent nutrition experts throughout Europe. UK Pet Food has also developed its own Guidelines for the production of raw pet food.
