Queretaro, Mexico – Diana Pet Food has purchased a plot of land in Queretaro on which it will build a 36597-square-foot plant to meet the growing demand for pet food palatability solutions, antioxidants, and functional ingredients in Mexico and Central America.
The new facility will replace the company’s current location in Queretaro. The acquired land is five times larger and the plant itself will also be larger than the old one.
The facility is expected to become operational in 2024 and will include an environmentally friendly design and operational features. This includes following LEED certification standards and adhering to CSR standards to minimize social and environmental impacts.
Food safety and high quality standards will also guide the development of this new facility.
“With this new venture, we reaffirm our commitment to our customers and prepare for the new challenges that the market holds for us,” said Diego Maurizio, General Manager of Diana Pet Food’s Latin America business. “We also continue to work with the city of Queretaro for our activity.”
According to Maurizio, Mexico is a key market for the company and is among the top five producers of pet food globally. Diana Pet Food entered the Mexican pet food market in 2004.
“The Mexican market is developing and growing by leaps and bounds, and we are committed to accompanying our customers closely, providing them with better service every day,” said Juan Manuel Becher, General Manager of Diana Pet Food Mexico. “Our local and regional teams know deeply the Mexican pet food market. We have designed solutions that perfectly adapt to local needs.”
The facility’s geographic location is also expected to improve the company’s services in this regional market.
