Canidae Natural Pet Food Company unveiled its new petfood manufacturing facility named Ethos Pet Nutrition, located in Brownwood, Texas, USA.
In March 2011, the company purchased an existing extrusion plant and has spent the last year "...completely re-building the facility to be the most modern natural petfood plant of its kind," according to director of operations, Frank Hon.
The petfood plant features the latest advancements in modern production and laboratory equipment, and will run final production tests in August. The plant also features an onsite quality and safety laboratory and an advanced automated extrusion system.
