The pet food market is growing at a fast rate and is subjected to increased demands in terms of quality testing and flavor testing. Pet food testing will be more accurate when certified by an accredited lab.

Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) regulates the manufacture of cat food, dog food, and all pet related edible products. FSSAI mainly focuses on the safety of the food which should not contain any harmful substances. All pet foods should be manufactured and produced under sanitary conditions following all safety measures. Pet foods which are canned must be processed abiding the low acid canned food guidelines that ensure the pet food is free of any pathogenic microorganisms.
