Chilliwack, B.C. – (September 18, 2015) – Petcurean, a leading, high quality, premium pet food company is opening a new manufacturing facility in partnership with Elmira Pet Products to meet the growing demand for the Canadian brand’s products. The new facility will feature state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment for its premium-quality, custom pet foods made with market-fresh meats, veggies, fruits and berries -all formulated by Petcurean’s nutrition department to promote the optimal health and well-being of dogs and cats.
“At Petcurean, we have a deep-seated commitment to providing the freshest, highest-quality premium pet food for our customers and their four-legged family members,” said Rick van Schagen, President and General Manager for Petcurean Pet Nutrition. “Ownership in this new facility allows us to ensure a secure supply for our growing customer base, and provides us with a solid foundation to continually innovate the best, premium pet food recipes that our customers have come to know and expect.”
Petcurean will continue to seek ingredients used in their recipes from carefully vetted farmers, ranchers and producers. The majority of the meat proteins, grains, cereals, fruits and vegetables in Petcurean’s GO!, NOW FRESH and SUMMIT Original recipes will continue to be sourced from North America and as close to the production facility as possible.
The manufacturing operation will uphold Petcurean’s very high standard of sanitation, cleanliness and manufacturing excellence. The facility will be run by Elmira, one of Canada’s largest dry pet food manufacturing plants with a dedicated and knowledgeable operations staff who have broad experience manufacturing premium-quality pet food products. As with other of Petcurean’s facilities, the plant will seek certification by the EU, FDA, BRC and CFIA.
