Pet Food Experts will also become the exclusive distributor of Sojos across all of its territories. Sojos complete and balanced freeze-dried, dehydrated foods combine the shelf-stable convenience of kibble with the unsurpassed nutrition and taste of fresh, raw food. Crafted in WellPet's own Minnesota-based Farm Fresh Kitchens manufacturing facility, all Sojos recipes are made without fillers, preservatives or anything artificial and contain high-quality natural proteins, fruits and vegetables, all blended with meticulous care.
"At WellPet, we believe in the power of natural nutrition to better the lives of our pets and feel that Pet Food Experts supports us in that mission. We're thrilled to continue building this partnership to ultimately bring WellPet recipes to more pets and their families," said Camelle Kent, chief executive officer at WellPet.
