and the company is stocking more raw material inventory
than usual to mitigate delivery disruptions and avoid
down time in extrusion. The company has also looked to
longer-term volume agreements, which was helpful in
protecting the company in the face of material shortages.
Preventing fraud and promoting safety
As ingredients are stretched thin and sometimes become
scarce, opportunities and motivation for adulteration of
products becomes possible.
" Procurement should know that economically motiBeing

vated adulteration is possible during supply shortages,
making food fraud an issue, " Ray said. " Adhering to your
company's approved supplier protocols for inspections,
third-party audits, food safety plan reviews, sampling
and testing of ingredients are necessary with all suppliers
to ensure that food safety is not compromised. "
While she is not aware of any recent instances of pet
food products being adulterated, Ray advised processors
should only purchase from suppliers that are known to
be reputable, test their products and provide accurate information.
If an ingredient that was once short on supply
suddenly becomes available, it could be an instance
of food fraud, Ray noted. If a company understands
what products are most likely to be adulterated and
what adulterants might be used, they can specifically test
those products before use.
Ray said staffing shortages can cause companies to
bring in new workers that are not familiar with roles in
the processing plant and are not trained in food safety.
This also highlights the need to make sure all staff are
trained in food safety despite the supply chain disruptions
and staffing shortages.
Ray also recommended companies stock up on a sixmonth
supply of personal protective equipment and
sanitation materials in case there are any supply chain
disruptions for those materials.
Finding success through the stress
Despite the challenges, companies have experienced
success. Shaw said Canidae chose to enter longer-term
volume agreements to secure commodity volume commitments
in 2021, and this helped protect the company
when there were material shortages. While there
were challenges in supplying some ingredients in time,
Canidae did not have significant gaps last year, according
to Shaw.
Because ADM Animal Nutrition has experience with
various disruptions to the supply chain,
Carrillo said the company has learned to
better manage the logistical problems and
was able to help brands adapt their pet
food formulations with ingredients more
readily available in their region.
Still, the challenges remain. Moynihan
said the industry will likely see many of
the same challenges throughout 2022.
" Building supply chain resilience, notably
through design, has gained a lot of
traction with all stakeholders, " Carrillo
said. " No longer a theoretical focus, the
need to consider significant strategy
changes throughout the supply chain has
become a big rock for policymakers, suppliers,
distributors and customers. " PFP
