Specialty pet retailers will have the opportunity to renew their acquaintance with Hillside Farms, makers of Benni & Penni natural jerky treats for dogs, at Global Pet Expo in March. Perhaps the most notable news for pet parents is that now the entire line is made in Southern California from 100% US ingredients.
Besides now being made the US, the brand is back with new products and new packaging. There are a range of Benni & Penni products priced to meet practically every treating need, from premium, whole muscle creations to poultry/sweet potato combinations to soft, easy-to-chew bites. Each is made utilizing Good Manufacturing Processes (GMP) with wholesome, natural ingredients like US-raised chicken breast, pork, turkey and duck. No animal by-products or artificial colors are added.
The makers of Benni & Penni also pride themselves on being completely responsible for safety and quality from start to finish.
“Unlike many treat brands, we operate our own state-of-the-art facility. Our reputation rides on every package that leaves our plant because we’re a family-owned firm,” said Steve King, vice president of sales & marketing.
Benni & Penni Premium treats are available in Chicken Breast, Chicken & Cheese and Pork varieties. The brand’s value line consists of Chicken & Sweet Potato, Turkey & Sweet Potato and Duck & Sweet Potato as well as Chicken and Duck Jerky Bites.
New shelter data casts doubt on whether the pet population and pet ownership are truly growing.
While the pandemic caused unprecedented suffering worldwide in 2020, the disruptions to dogs, cats and other pets adoption numbers may normalize in 2021.
