Competitive Pet Product Prices
We work very hard to keep our competitive pet product prices, given the quality of the products we bring to market. In the last six months, we have sustained several cost increases in the production of our dry and canned foods. This is due primarily to the escalating costs of some ingredients, as well as the costs of complying with the new Food Safety Modernization Act.
In order to maintain the quality of our foods, a small price increase has become unavoidable. As a result, on June 26th, our dry and canned food prices marginally increased (amounts vary by product). The increases are modest compared to the double-digit price hikes of many competing foods since last year.
Thank you so much for your continued business and support. You have our best wishes for continued success throughout 2014 and well into the future!
