Vital Essentials Wins Award


Published:

 

Carnivore Meat Company, maker of Vital Essentials and Vital Cat brands, received the 2018 Governor’s Export Achievement Award at the Annual Wisconsin International Trade Conference held in Milwaukee. Vital Essentials and Vital Cat raw pet food brands have been growing at a fast pace over the past three years. It is because of this growth plus the company's contributions to the overall state economy and trade development that it was chosen as one of this year’s award recipients.

 

"It's with great pride on behalf of Carnivore Meat Company, our employees and our partners around the world that we accept the Governor's Export Achievement Award this year," said Lanny Viegut, CEO and owner.

 

The company, which began exporting in 2015, experienced a 54 percent increase in international sales from 2016 to 2017, and expects 2018 increases at an even greater rate. The number of retail outlets has grown to over 6,000 around the world with exports to 14 countries.

 

"We exceeded expectations last year and are making significant investments across the entire organization and anticipate a 50 percent increase in our workforce, just to keep up to demand,” said Viegut.
