Pet Business magazine recently announced Spring Naturals as the winner in the dog food category of their annual Industry Recognition Awards.
The line of Spring Naturals dinners and treats are under the Performance Pet Products company, which is a subsidiary of American Foods Group, also the fifth largest beef processing company in the United States and a family-owned firm.
Rob Cadenhead, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Spring Naturals, commented, “Speaking for the entire Spring Naturals team, it’s a real honor for us to be selected for this award. It’s great having a national publication like Pet Business confirm that our new line is on target and on trend.”
Each year, Pet Business magazine highlights the specialty pet industry’s most innovative and functional products across a variety of pet care categories. Honorees are selected from a variety of source materials including press releases, industry trade shows, pet store shelves, and online retailer websites. Brands that received the awards this year are showcased in the December issue of Pet Business magazine.
Spring Naturals uses real meat, poultry, or fish for its first-listed ingredient. Other ingredients in their pet foods include chickpeas, green peas, and eggs. They do not contain meat meals and are formulated without corn, wheat, soy, potato starch, or rice, known to be high-glycemic ingredients. Recipes will also be available in organic varieties in March, 2012. The line is also available in a grain-free version.
Begun in 1946, the company uses premium, domestically sourced ingredients for their foods from the United States. Retailers that are interested in carrying the line may visit the company website, www.springnaturals.com, for more information.
