In January 2010, Tim Callahan, CEO of WellPet, spoke with Petfood Industry. In January 2016, WellPet announced that it would acquire Sojos, a family-owned company offering a line of raw, freeze-dried pet food for dogs and cats.
Some key quotes from that 2010 interview that are still relevant today:
Petfood Industry (PI): With all the changes WellPet has experienced over the past couple years, what do you think have been the most important changes for the company's future success? Tim Callahan (TC): I'd start by saying in addition to the things we changed, it's probably good to say one of the things we didn't change.
