(PRESS RELEASE) AVON, CT — Oma’s Pride Raw Pet Food, a multi-generational family business, announces a momentous transition to the 4th generation and expansion of operations as of February 2nd, 2024. Adam DeJulius, 4th generation owner & operator, was previously head of operations and finance; now, he is stepping up into the role of president, CFO, and lead of Oma’s Pride and the entire pet division.

“I’m honored and humbled to be entrusted to carry on four generations of legacy. I take very seriously the responsibility I have to my family, our teammates, and their families; most importantly, I take my responsibility to our customers and their pets very seriously. We will continue to offer the most premium product in the market, be unwavering in our integrity, and make a raw natural diet an easier choice for pet parents everywhere,” shares Adam.

Capri Brighenti, 3rd generation owner & operator, previously the president of Oma’s Pride; will continue to lead the parent company Miller Foods as CEO, and pivot to focus on expanding the legacy of the family business, centered on deepening connections in the community through people food. She will serve as President of this division, Miller Farms, growing product lines and taking on exciting endeavors, like a new landmark partnership with Frescobene Arisan Sauces.

As Capri reflects on this expansion, she shares, “A lesson I’ve learned through the years is that it’s about the people always. We invest in our people first, we invest in our equipment, all those things, but it’s about the people and pets at the end of the day. To be able to make something in America and do this throughout the United States, it’s a gift. This legacy is something my family has left behind, and we want to continue to perpetuate it.”

As Miller Farms and Oma’s Pride take a bold step forward into the future, everyone at Oma’s Pride remains thankful for the continued opportunities and chance to build upon its roots. Oma’s Pride is a family legacy built in America, founded in 1950 as a small poultry farm in Connecticut’s Farmington Valley, and rooted in community and customer connection. No one person can do it alone, and it has taken the generational efforts of Capri, her aunt and uncle, parents, grandparents, cousins, children, and now her son Adam, to grow from a small farm to an experienced manufacturer and retailer—all within 4 generations.


As both Adam and Capri take on new roles at Oma’s Pride and Miller Farms, everyone at Oma’s Pride remains dedicated to helping pets live long, healthy lives through an optimal diet made of natural, real, and unprocessed ingredients—as nature intended. The heart behind everything is for people and their pets.
