We use EU-approved ingredients.
For a U.S. company to sell into the European Union it must use what are known as “EU-approved” ingredients. To be an EU-approved ingredient the source of that ingredient MUST be fit for human consumption before being processed into the ingredients used Best Breed foods. For example, if a chicken has a spot on its breast that causes it to be rejected for human consumption, no other part of that chicken may be used for EU-approved chicken meal and will therefore go into the “animal-grade” bin. All chicken meal used in our food must be made with chicken that comes from the for-human-consumption line. Does this mean that the “chicken meal” is human-grade. The answer is no as “chicken meal” is not made for humans to eat, but it does guarantee that no fallen animals or 4D ingredients are used.
