On your next cat food order, you may notice that the kibble is smaller in size. Rest assured, the food is correct. It was time to replace the dies as the food kibble was becoming too large. This is something that every food manufacturer does on a regular basis. When our QC department decides that it is reaching the limit for what we deem acceptable, new dies are created. A die is the plate that the food is pushed through (think Play Doh machine). Once the dies are replaced, the kibble is a smaller size. The dies will wear over time until it they need to be replaced again. Just a bit of food trivia for you on this fine Monday.
