C.J. Foods Inc., a provider of specialty dry pet food manufacturing services for super premium pet food brands in the US, has acquired Day Six Pet Nutrition, which also specializes in manufacturing specialty dry pet food brands.
The purchase of Day Six Pet Nutrition, based in Baxter Springs, Kansas, USA, further increases C.J. Foods share in the super premium pet food manufacturing market.
“The combination of Day Six with our business will immediately provide room for our clients to grow their business with us,” said Tod Morgan, president and CEO of C.J. Foods, in a report. “The acquisition is also expected to result in greater flexibility in scheduling and increase our capabilities as we add a nearly new facility along with a top-notch team of experienced people.”
C.J. Foods will retain all 40 of the Day Six employees, including the management team.
