“At Whitebridge Pet Brands, our team shares a passion for pets and the belief that natural and minimally processed nutrition positively impacts the health and happiness of dogs and cats," said Olivier Amice, CEO of Whitebridge. “In the spirit of our 'Better Together' philosophy, we are now very excited to join forces with NXMH alongside their other international pet food businesses. The new combined scale and footprint will allow us to continue to build our platform and accelerate our development, with more innovation, geographic expansion and new acquisitions.”
