Merrick Pet Care earned the Safe Quality Food Level 3 certification for its 195,000-square-foot facilities located in Hereford, Texas.

The SQF Level 3 certification means Merrick has successfully completed a stringent food safety auditing process and verifies that their facilities are in compliance with Certified HACCP, Hazard Analysis, Critical Control Points, food safety plans and quality management systems.

“We are proud to have earned the SQF Level 3 certification, which demonstrates our commitment and dedication to providing the highest quality pet foods and treats,” Greg Shearson, CEO of Merrick Pet Care, said.

Receiving the SQF Level 3 certification builds on Merrick’s record of industry firsts.

Merrick, makers of pet food brands including: Merrick and Castor & Pollux’s Organix  and Natural UltraMix brands, is now the only pet food company who manufactures its own food to ever receive the Level 3 certification, the company said.

In 2012, Merrick’s facilities became the world’s only known Organic certified manufacturer for both dry and canned food for pets under the USDA National Organic Program.
