Cuddon Freeze Dry chooses Biopharma for Distribution
23 Feb 2020
Biopharma Group has been selected by Cuddon Freeze Dry to exclusively distribute and provide technical service and maintenance for its products in the UK and Ireland.
Within its product range, Cuddon Free Dry has a proven record in production scale freeze dryers for pet food. It currently boasts more than 600 machines in the field with models with capacities of 80kg to 1500kg (based on the ice condensing capacity within a 24-hour cycle). Other customised size options are available.
As consumers demand better nutritional value from their pet food, so more companies are looking at supplying the market. Global demand for freeze-dried food is projected to continue to grow at around 7.8%, bringing the natural dog and cat food market to a value of $700million according to GfK data. In the United Kingdom, the dry dog food market was worth £576 million in 2018. Dog food had the highest sales volume worth approximately £1.4 billion, closely followed by cat food at £1.1 billion.
Freeze-dried pet food is by far the best way to maintain the nutrition, taste, and smell of products when removing the moisture. It enables dehydration to occur without significant denaturing of the proteins, which is largely due to the low temperatures and gentle conditions involved.
