Portland Pet Food Company Expands to Japan
Portland Pet Food Company (PPFC) is bringing its human-grade dog meals and treats to Japan.
Tokyo-based KK ASK Planning International will be the exclusive distributor of PPFC in Japan. In addition to online sales, PPFC plans to sell its products in Japanese natural food and specialty pet stores, including Rosie’s Beef N’ Rice and Hopkin’s Pork N’ Potato meal pouches, as well as its collection of dog biscuits and treats.
PPFC uses 100 percent human-grade USDA meats and ingredients in its products that are all sourced and prepared in the U.S.
“This is a huge next step for our company, and we are so thrilled to now be selling our products internationally,” said Kate McCarron, top dog of Portland Pet Food Company. “As shopping habits continue to shift toward natural products and healthy foods, people are doing the same for their pets. Japan has an aging population with aging dogs, and they are very respectful of their pets, treating them as valued members of their family. Pet owners in Japan are particularly interested in products that will help keep their dogs mobile and healthy so our high end, all-natural human grade food is a perfect fit for the long years they spend with their pets...”
In addition to its expanding footprint in the U.S. and the launch of exports to Japan, PPFC is also now available to pet owners in Canada.
