#DiamondNaturals Offers Peace of Mind + A Giveaway [Sponsored Post]

“Be sure to check where it comes from!”
I overheard a woman bark that command to the man she was shopping with in the pet aisle of a big box store over the weekend. It made me smile.
The couple was buying food and treats for their dogs. Obviously, at least the woman was aware of the greater safety risks associated with pet products that come from China.
Made in America is one of the reasons I feel good about Diamond, a pet food company that manufacturers its products “from start to finish” right here in America. In fact, the headquarters for Diamond Pet Foods’ is actually just a few hours south of me, in Meta, Missouri. The company has three other state-of-the-art facilities located in California and South Carolina.
But location isn’t everything.
Diamond’s commitment to food safety involves on-site product testing, microbial control and testing, as well as air and water quality controls. More than 1,300 microbiological tests are conducted at every Diamond facility every week.
The company also employs a “Test and Hold Program, in which product tests are conducted by a certified, independent laboratory.” In addition, Diamond Pet Foods facilities are also subjected to an annual Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) audit administered by the food safety audit firm NSF International®.
This is true of the original Diamond Pet Foods products as well as the recently launched, affordable grain-free varieties.
