After joining with German-based counterpart Vitakraft’s U.S. subsidiary in 2008, the combined company has continued to expand its product offerings and reach throughout the U.S and beyond. The company embraces nutritional science and new technologies to provide consumers and their pets with high-quality food and treats.
