Performance Pet Products Opens New Facility



Farmers Union Enterprises’ (FUE) Performance Pet Products opened a new facility in Mitchell, S.D. 

“We are excited for the expanded capacity this new facility provides,” said Dan Hildebrandt, CEO of Farmers Union Industries (FUI), an organization that manages several agribusinesses owned by FUE, whose profits help fund the operations of five state Farmers Union organizations, including North and South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Montana. FUE also supports the National Farmers Union.

FUE purchased the full-service, premium pet food cannery in 2015.

“We expanded from a facility that can produce 6 million cases each year to a facility that can produce 30 million,” said Dale Bednarek, chief operation officer. 

As a co-packing facility employing 100, Performance Pet Products produces pet food for multiple brands from across the country.
