Additional steps that Covid-19 pandemics experts suggested, and we adopted at Mamas pet food

  • When we cook your pets meals we are following exactly the same standards suggested on food preparation for humans.
  • Use of discarded gloves and paper towels to clean that are immediately thrown away
  • Every raw ingredient we buy to prepare your pets meal is washed and sanitized as per suggestions of AHS and other health organizations.
  • We doubled our usual standards with hygiene and sanitation, which means at every step the cook wash hands thoroughly, also every pot, cooking tool and table-top is double cleaned and sanitized before use.
  • During the cooking process the food is not touched until is ready to be wrapped up or stored in a container.
  • Once the food is ready, we put the food hot in the final container it goes to the freezer.

In other words, do with Mams pet Food the same you do with your own food.
