Premium pet food brands come together under parent company Ethos Pet Brands for pet industry’s premier international event.




(PRESS RELEASE) ORLANDO, FL – Natural Balance Pet Foods, Inc. and Canidae Pet Food Company will exhibit together under parent company, Ethos Pet Brands, for the first time at Global Pet Expo 2024, taking place March 20-22 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. After announcing the two companies’ merger at the event in 2023 and the subsequent parent company vision in August 2023, both Natural Balance and Canidae are thrilled to showcase the latest and greatest from each brand together at Booth 214 this year.

By joining forces under Ethos Pet Brands, the premium pet food brands strengthen their commitment to delivering the highest quality pet nutrition. “Ethos,” the original and long-standing name of Canidae’s manufacturing facility in Brownwood, Texas, reflects both companies’ character, honesty and integrity while representing their commitment to providing high-quality nutrition and premium ingredients.

“Ethos Pet Brands has the unique opportunity to showcase both Natural Balance and Canidae’s industry-leading pet food offerings and feeding solutions together at the same event where the merger was announced one year earlier,” said Greg Shearson, chief executive officer of Ethos Pet Brands. “With Canidae’s commitment to delivering value to multi-pet households and Natural Balance’s dedication to pets with sensitivities, Ethos Pet Brands is passionate about improving the well-being and lives of pets.”

Canidae will preview its reinvented All Life Stages product line during this year’s Global Pet Expo, which now features real meat as the first ingredient at a new, lower price point. With improved palatability and recipes developed with veterinarian and pet nutrition experts, pet parents can feel good about their pet’s nutrition. Canidae’s All Life Stages is crafted for pets of all breeds, sizes, and ages, providing a simple, “one bag” solution for multi-pet households. Since its founding in 1996, Canidae has stood for quality, value, and sustainability. An innovator in the space, Canidae partners with U.S. farmers to source regenerative ingredients that are good for pets and the planet. The updated All Life Stages will hit shelves starting in July 2024.

Natural Balance will share the benefits of Limited Ingredient feeding for pets with food sensitivities. As a leader in the Limited Ingredient space, Natural Balance recipes are crafted using single-source animal proteins and premium ingredients to help support sensitive stomachs and skin and coat health. With no added fillers, artificial colors or flavors, Natural Balance’s Limited Ingredient recipes provide a delicious solution for pet parents looking to avoid specific dietary and ingredient triggers for their pets.
