Dear Nutribyte Clients

As you know we started Nutribyte via an online service where we delivered single bags to clients all over Gauteng. This service was offered online in order to get our brand into the market and also to get people aware of what we had to offer with a unique service of getting your orders delivered to your door. Unfortunately, due to pressing economic factors and increasing Diesel/fuel prices, this service is no longer feasible for us. Come 30 November 2018 our Nutribyte online store will be closed down permanently. We would however like to encourage our clients to continue supporting us, therefor would like to bring to your attention that most Pet Shops and some Vet Shop/ Veterinarians within the Gauteng region now stock our brand. You are welcome to utilize our store locator at www.nutribyte.co.za which will assist you in finding your closest stockist. Should you not find a stockist within a close proximity of your residence, please feel free to contact our office or any of our representatives in order for us to assist you.

We would like to thank you for your continued support and also for utilizing our online store service, we truly regret having to see the online store come to an end but as mentioned, due to the current economic state we will have to raise the fees to such an extent, it will no longer make it feasible for any of our online customers. Buying from respective stores stocking our Nutribyte range you will still be able to get your hands on our brand at a reduced price compared to the online store prices.



Manufacturing & Quality Control

Pre Production

Nutribyte uses a renowned factory, fully approved by Act 36 of 1947, to manufacture the Nutribyte range. We are proud to say that we use a fixed formula on all diets, meaning that every batch of Nutribyte made is exactly the same as the last. This allows for a healthier lifestyle and avoids nutritional imbalances. All ingredients are tested pre-production to ensure that they conform to the necessary specifications. Ingredients are also tested for mycotoxins and other impurities.

Production

Once all ingredients have been tested, they are milled individually and then mixed together to create the unique formula. All ingredients are milled at 0.8mm size, to optimize digestion and to ensure that the extrusion process runs smoothly. The vitamin & mineral premix, along with the other additional additives like Glucosamine, MOS & FOS, Beta Glucan, etc. are added and mixed thoroughly into the batch.

Nutribyte uses an independent quality controller to make ensure the correct procedures are followed at all times throughout the entire run. He monitors:

  • Kibble sizing
  • Moisture and water activity
  • Universal coating
  • Sufficient drying
  • NIR lab testing
  • Final inspection before bagging

Should the batch not conform to any one of these standards, the entire batch is rejected and the process starts over. We do not allow any deviations or shortcuts.

Post Production

After manufacturing, samples are sent to an independent laboratory to run a wetchem analysis, (which is far more accurate than a standard NIR), to analyze the final product. The wetchem analysis will immediately and accurately confirm, if the feed is according to specifications. If the product does not test as it is registered according to Act 36/1947, the batch is rejected as by law.
