Petfood Forum 2020 - Kansas City, MO

Petfood Forum 2020 - Kansas City, MO

Baker Perkins will be attending Petfood Forum 2020 at the Kansas City Convention Center in Kansas City, MO, August 19-21, 2020.

We will introduce a new concept in health and wellbeing for pets, and also emphasize a capacity to produce a wide selection of pet treats through three different processes.

We offer opportunities to develop new product ideas using depositing and extrusion technology, and have a unique capability to provide complete systems for the production of baked pet treats.

Full detail of the exhibition can be found at

Depositing gummy treats

Depositing pet treat chews is an addition to our process portfolio, and the newest concept is the addition of CBD to functional gummies. The medicinal benefits claimed for CBD which include alleviating symptoms of muscle and joint stiffness, plus improved sleep and relaxation, are all relevant in the pet food sector.

Baker Perkins' ServoForm™ Mini, a flexible starch-free depositing system for small batch production, is widely used in the confectionery industry for gummies, and ideal for producing high-quality chewy gummies for pets – incorporating all kinds of dietary supplements.

The starch-free depositing process combines high accuracy, high-quality appearance and low production costs in a controlled, hygienic environment. Exactly the right proportion of ingredients is added to ensure that the dose is correct and that there is no waste.

Baked pet foods

Baker Perkins understands the exacting requirements involved in processing the heavier doughs needed for baked pet treat production. Robust, heavy duty equipment is essential to mix, feed and form the dough into the required shapes. Baking also has specific characteristics that are exclusive to this range of products.

Over 100 years of experience in the design and installation of pet treat lines has given Baker Perkins a unique database of knowledge. We use our process familiarity to specify exactly the right system for each end product requirement, and to design equipment that meets the specific needs of the industry, and imaginatively solve issues such as better weight control, reduced maintenance and easier use.

Baker Perkins systems provide the flexibility to make baked treats in a broad variety of attractive shapes, colors and flavors.

Extrusion for new ideas

Baker Perkins' twin-screw cooker extruders produce an extensive range of pet treats. Options include direct expanded pieces with a cookie-or cracker-like texture, produced in a variety of sizes on a standard extrusion line. Adding a co-extrusion system creates the ability to produce added-value center-filled treats. These consist of cream or paste, in an almost unlimited variety of colors and flavors, surrounded by an outer shell.
