Quality Assurance Program

We follow a rigorous Quality Assurance Program to provide our customers confidence & satisfaction in our products & services.

We Deal in Quality

Pestell Minerals & Ingredients is dedicated to providing the highest quality products and we monitor the effectiveness of our commitment through the requirements of our QAP (Quality Assurance Program).

As a starting point, our QAP requires that all supply chain partners of feed ingredients, additives and fertilizer micros share our dedication to product quality. From there, both chemical and physical analysis of both domestic and international inbound ingredients is conducted to ensure they meet or exceed the pre-established product specifications required by the animal feed and fertilizer industries. Testing frequency standards are established and reviewed annually by our in-house lab technician to ensure we are satisfying our due diligence requirements.

We also ensure that we supply and archive a Certificate of Analysis for each product lot that we distribute to our customers.
