AUSTIN, TEXAS — A Pup Above has expanded distribution in the United States by partnering with Middle West Distributors. This is the latest of several distribution developments by the company so far this year.

“A Pup Above is excited to begin this new chapter with Middle West Distributors, a family owned and operated company that shares many of the same values as A Pup Above when it comes to the health of dogs through great nutrition,” said Javier Marriott, co-founder and president of A Pup Above. “We look forward to continuing our expansion into this region so that A Pup Above is readily available to pet parents across the Midwest.”

By the end of 2021, A Pup Above stated it expects to sell its products in 1,000 stores across the United States.

“We are proud to partner exclusively with the neighborhood pet channel to grow the gently cooked category,” Marriott added. “We have several programs to support our brand’s growth in pet stores. These include a sampling program and education program to make it as easy as possible for customers and store employees to try and learn about the product.”

A Pup Above produces gently cooked, sous-vide style fresh dog food formulas that can be found at independent pet stores across the United States.

Middle West Distributors provides pet industry products to pet specialty retailers in and around Chicago, Milwaukee and Madison, Wis., and Northern Indiana.
