Canidae Natural Pet Food Company announced its unveiling of a new petfood manufacturing facility named Ethos Pet Nutrition located in Brownwood, Texas, USA.
In March 2011, the petfood company purchased an existing extrusion plant and, according to director of operations, Frank Hon, spent the last year "...completely re-building the facility to be the most modern natural petfood plant of its kind."
The new plant features an onsite quality and safety laboratory and an advanced automated extrusion system. Ethos Pet Nutrition facility will run final production tests in May.
More information about the company's new facility will be made available after the final quality assurance trials are completed, Canidae says.
While cat trends continue, the pandemic has added to overall slow-growth treatment of the cat food market.
Premiumization and humanization, as well as automation, fueled continued operation growth in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic.
