Phillips Pet Food & Supplies, a leading pet product distributor serving the independent pet channel, recently added the new Essence pet food to its Taunton, Massachusetts, and Sacramento, California, distribution centers.
Essence is super-premium, high-protein nutrition for dogs and cats with ingredients that are from responsible and clean sources. Essence is an expansion brand of Pets Global Family of Brands, the founders of Zignature and Fussy Cat.
Essence dry foods are at least 85 percent animal, poultry or fish protein ingredients. The wet food products are 96 percent meat, fish or poultry protein ingredients. The first seven ingredients in all Essence kibble formulas come from meat, poultry or fish sources.
Essence can serve as an “ingredient elimination” diet because it does not include ingredients that may cause food sensitivities, such as grains, potatoes, peas, alfalfa, flaxseed and sunflower oil.
