Our ingredients come from around the world. Ingredients are purchased directly or via official distribution channels in North America. Countries from where these come from include: Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Malaysia, Switzerland, and USA.
We manufacture premixes for all animal species.
All biological functions are dependent on one or more of the trace, macro minerals or vitamins in the diet. Therefore, formulating a mineral/vitamin mix specific to the species (and age/production stage) is critical for healthy and economical production. Natural levels in feedstuffs may not be adequate or are unavailable to the animal.
Nature’s Pride is proud of the quality provided to our customers. To achieve this standard of quality we have become certified under HACCP (Hazard and Critical Control Points) and the Canadian Feed Assure program. Both of these programs audit our facility yearly to ensure that our processes and outputs meet stringent quality requirements.
Nature’s Pride does not make organic premixes. However, we do make premixes that in most cases are acceptable to the standards set out with various certifying agencies. We will work with customers’ certifying agencies to create blends that adhere to their standards.
If a customer requires our sales staff to assist in managing Nature’s Pride Nutrition’s inventory at the farm, we will extend that “keep full” service without overstocking the customer.
Yes. In Canada you would have access to our nutritionist whereas in the United States, typically most of this work is done by a consulting nutritionist. We work regularly with these consultants to design customer specific nutrition packages – minerals, supplements etc.
Standard payment terms are net 30 days from date of delivery.
Pricing for all products are based on incoming ingredient prices which are affected by global trends and currency exchange rates.
Within reason, NPN is capable and willing to package materials in customer determined bag sizes. Small packages from 15 kg – 25 kg (30 -55 lbs), and large totes ranging from 750 kg (1600 lbs) to 1100 kg (2500 lbs). Bulk deliveries can also be accommodated pending the delivery method requested.
That depends on the density of the product being made. The default batch size is 1000 kg; our standard mixer size. However, for a very low density premix we may be able to make as low as 300 kg. The rationale is that we want to ensure a uniform mix of all the micro ingredients. If we mix too small a batch, there is not enough mixing action to ensure this.
