FORT COLLINS, COLO. — PetDine, a leading private label pet supplement co-manufacturer in the United States, has opened a 10,000-square-foot manufacturing facility near its headquarters in Fort Collins. The new state-of-the-art facility will help the co-manufacturer increase production and its to-market speed.
The company will continue to innovate soft chews, powder supplements and liquid food toppers for the growing pet health and wellness market in Fort Collins. The new facility adds to its existing production capacity in Harvard, Ill., specifically doubling production capacity for liquid meal toppers, a capability added by the company in June 2020.
“The pet products industry is a fast-paced, ever-growing industry,” said Preston Munsch, chief executive officer of PetDine. “Increasing production capacity and staying on the cutting edge of manufacturing will help us speed up our clients’ go-to-market timeline and maintain leadership within the industry.”
The new Fort Collins plant will adhere to the Safe Quality Food (SQF) code, according to PetDine. Jay Sokolowski, senior production manager at PetDine, will lead the Fort Collins facility, which is an extension to its 220,000-square-foot facility in Harvard.
“Whether it is liquid pet food toppers, natural animal chews or powders, we want to provide the best health benefits to our four-legged friends and outstanding results at a faster pace for our clients,” Sokolowski said.
PetDine has access to more than 300 high-quality ingredients for its pet supplement formulations, and does not incorporate corn, wheat, sugars, salts, artificial colors or gumming agents in its products. The company does not use water or heat to process its products, resulting in a food-safe and nutrient-preserving production.
