Pet Food Moisture Analysis at Natural Core

Case Study

Halogen Moisture Content Determination Offers Fast Quality Control for Crunchy Pet Food

Natural Core, a global pet food manufacturer headquartered in Sungnam-si, South Korea, produces a range of organic products that help keep cats and dogs fit and healthy. The company is a market leader in Korea and the company’s USDA- and ECOCERT-certified products are also sold in Malaysia, China, Hong Kong, Russia, Singapore, Brunei, Greece, Thailand and the UK. Their production is entirely organic, such that pet food from Natural Core contains no antibiotics, pesticides, artificial colorings or GMOs.

To improve productivity and meet stringent demands for quality control, Natural Core turned to METTLER TOLEDO for a solution that could optimize its moisture content analysis. By replacing its drying ovens with METTLER TOLEDO moisture analyzers, the company has enhanced the quality of its products and improved process efficiency.

Easy, efficient

Natural Core had been analyzing the moisture content of its products using drying ovens. However, this was too time-consuming, and manually tracking processes made it difficult to keep accurate results.

Its managers made the company’s goals clear: “We need highly accurate results, equipment that is easy to handle and efficient data organization.”

METTLER TOLEDO suggested its user-friendly HC103 Halogen Moisture Analyzers. For better data management, the instruments document measurement results both electronically and as PDF files, which can automatically be pushed to a connected USB drive.

With the HC103 moisture analyzer, Natural Core benefits from fast, accurate and reproducible results, as well as improved data management for error-free documentation. In the production and quality team’s own words, “Moisture content determination is important, as it influences the quality and shelf-life of a product, and we treat pet food no differently than human food."
