Making Pet Treats for Sale

​​​If you make pet food or treats for sale in Wisconsin, even if you make the products in your own kitchen on a very small scale, you must meet all the requirements of a commercial feed manufacturer, labeler and distributor. This means you must be licensed, you must file an annual tonnage report, and you must meet labeling requirements. 

You do not need a commercial kitchen like that you would need to produce human food. The Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) provides excellent detailed information about producing pet foods, including pet treats.
