OLATHE, KAN. — JAC Pet Nutrition, LLC, a company that entered the pet market earlier this year with the launch of several natural pet treats and meal topper products, has now partnered with Crystal Coast Pets to expand distribution in the southeastern United States.

Crystal Coast Pets will begin offering JAC Pet Nutrition products to independent pet retailers through its New Bern, N.C. distribution center.

“We are proud to partner with Rob Johnson, an industry veteran and the owner of Crystal Coast Pets, to service independent pet retailers in the southeast,” said Charlie Bachkora, “chief pooper scooper” at JAC Pet Nutrition. “Rob has a wealth of knowledge and great relationships with retailers across the country.”

The JAC Pet Nutrition portfolio includes dehydrated and freeze-dried raw dog treats and dehydrated superfood meal toppers for both dogs and cats. The company takes a fresh-meat, small-batch approach to its formulations, which are designed to be holistically nutritious and functional. All ingredients are sourced from the United States and Canada, and products are manufactured in the United States.

“Crystal Coast Pets is extremely excited about this partnership of a unique and amazing brand,” said Rob Johnson, president of Crystal Coast Pets. “…To be a successful distributor these days you need great brands that help develop the independent retailers in their growth. JAC Pet Nutrition stands to that greatness.”
