EASTON, Pa. — Phillips Pet Food & Supplies will offer Stella & Chewy’s pet food and treat line to shelves in its distribution centers in Billings, Montana, Denver, Portland, Phoenix and Sacramento. The decision comes in response to strong growth in Phillips’ eastern distribution centers with the Stella & Chewy’s brand.

“Fresh, frozen and freeze-dried products are increasing in popularity with pet parents and are driving significant growth for our retail customers. Phillips expanded fresh and frozen distribution capabilities earlier this year and we are proud to expand our strategic partnership with Stella & Chewy’s,” said Elizabeth Thibodeau, vice president of merchandising and marketing, Phillips Pet Food & Supplies. “The brand’s focus on nutrition, innovation and quality reflect our mutual commitment to create an exceptional retailer experience with a highly relevant brand that pet parents know and trust.”

Stella and Chewy’s is a natural and raw pet food and treat brand in the US based on the idea that feeding pets diets they would have had in the wild is most beneficial to their health. All products are grain-free, gluten-free and enhanced with probiotics.

Phillips announced earlier in November it also expanded western distribution for Plato Pet Treats.
