South Florida dog chew company Nature Gnaws unveiled its new wholesale program for independent pet store owners nationwide. Nature Gnaws can now be ordered with low minimum orders and receive free shipping. The company aims to support and engage with pet retail clients of all types.
To give pet stores a better option for purchasing their product, Nature Gnaws developed a wholesale program that gives the flexibility to purchase product as needed, without quantity restrictions and offering free shipping. The program is so attractive that stores can see upwards of over 60% margins, making Nature Gnaws a great addition to their dog treat and chew offerings. The company also offers private label opportunities for retailers interested in expanding upon their own brands. Interested pet stores should email firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
Since launching in 2016, Nature Gnaws experienced massive expansion. The company attributes the growth to quality of product and overseeing all aspects of the supply chain. Unlike competitors in the space, Nature Gnaws skipped large meat distributors and went straight to the source. Co-founders Jay Mokbel and Steve Mamak flew to South America and partnered with local farmers. From there, the meat was shipped to the company's warehouse where it’s cleaned with water, baked in FDA-approved ovens and personally inspected before shipping.
Nature Gnaws sells a wide selection of products including bully sticks, beef tripe twists, and combo packs. The company also offers whole pig and cow ears.
"Our intent to support independent pet stores is a top priority, ” said co-founder, Steve Mamak. “In order for these stores to thrive, it’s wise to offer natural pet chew options they can trust and ensure they can purchase from us at the best pricing with the most ease.”
Nature Gnaws aims to disrupt chew and treat products that use chemicals and perservatives. All single and limited-ingredient Nature Gnaws products are a natural alternative to rawhide, promoting a myriad of health benefits. Mokbel and Mamak built the company around inspiration from their own pets, and since founding the company, continue to give back to local animal rescues, shelters, awareness organizations and nonprofit leaders including the Humane Society of the United States.
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.
