We want to provide a better life for all pets and be at the heart of every eating experience. That’s why we support pet food manufacturers in 3 essential features of their pet food products:

Pet food palatability

Pet owners want to share unique interactions with their furry companions. Mealtime is key for strengthening that emotional bond.

Better tasting pet food makes for happier pets and owners alike.
SPF is reinventing pet food palatability to enhance the sensorial experience of pets and make mealtime a shared happy moment.

As the worldwide leader in palatability, SPF combines technical expertise and innovation to develop product concepts that improve pet food attractiveness through novel forms of palatability enhancement.
