Why work with us:

CAT’s AQUA Feedtech Center eliminates the need to work with multiple labs or companies. We provide additional services in Health, Nutrition and Genetics to add value to your project. 

We produce feed in-house and control every step of the process to ensure the high quality of pellets.

While some ingredients can be difficult to source, and there is a wait period while they ship, we eliminate these concerns by maintaining an inventory of most common ingredients.

Our in-house facilities, available inventory, regulatory certifications, and expertise in navigating regulations around shipping feeds reduce the long wait times for testing and production.

Our high-throughput sample analysis pipeline allows us to assay genetic markers and rapidly analyze data to provide timely results.

We have built trusting, lasting relationships with strategic suppliers over the years. This ensures, among other commitments, access to a greater range of analyses and feed ingredients. 

We can ship feeds anywhere in the world.
