Codes of Practice & Guidelines

Learn more about FEDIAF guidelines and codes of practice that pet food manufacturers in the UK have to follow to ensure healthy, safe and hygienic processes are followed when making pet food.

Pet owners feeding commercially prepared pet food from a member of UK Pet Food can have complete confidence they are addressing all their pet’s nutritional needs.

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 European pet nutrition experts.

Members of UK Pet Food follow strict guidelines when making pet foods. At UK Pet Food, we have also developed our own Guidelines for producing raw pet food that we expect our members producing raw pet food to follow.
