(PRESS RELEASE) PORTLAND, OR — Portland Pet Food Company (PPFC), an award-winning manufacturer of human-grade dog food toppers and treats, has announced its first expansion into cat products with the release of two Homestyle Meal formulas: Boots’ Salmon N’ Pumpkin and Luke’s Chicken N’ Pumpkin. These products will be available in limited quantities online and in select stores starting in September with full distribution in the United States in October in the pet specialty and natural grocery channels.

Like PPFC’s dog meals, the new line of cat meals is human-grade and entirely sourced and made in the United States. The two new products are designed to be used as a rotational meal or topper to complement a cat’s routine meal, providing a fresh, natural boost to a cat’s regular diet. The whole-food, limited ingredients are easily digestible and perfect for all cats, particularly those with digestive issues and food sensitivities. Like all PPFC products, the cat meals are free from hormones, synthetics, antibiotics, supplements and additives, and are made with fewer than 8 ingredients.

“It has been a goal of ours for some time to expand into the cat food category,” said Katie McCarron, founder of PPFC. “This launch represents years of research and development; our team is beyond thrilled to finally bring the same quality pet food to cats that we’ve been serving to dogs for years. We are leading the way offering alternative options for cat parents seeking nutritionally dense, highly palatable and moisture rich whole foods.”

Additionally, all cat food, similar to PPFC’s dog food, is free from rendered meats, as rendered meat is not approved for human consumption and is typically sourced from animals suffering from illness, disease or old age. They partner with Pacific Northwest companies to ensure that 100% of their dog and cat food is sourced and made in the United States.

Furthermore, the food comes in a shelf-stable, earth-friendly, BPA-free pouch. The pouches are lightweight and offer easy portability, making travel with your cat less complicated. Each cat pouch’s suggested retail is $3.29.

“We cook all pet food in small batches and work out of USDA-approved commercial facilities, ensuring our commitment to simple, nutritious food,” continued McCarron. “PPFC selects high-quality USDA-certified meat/fish, fresh vegetables and whole grains from local suppliers. Additionally, it’s no surprise that the pandemic has increased demand across all pet food categories, but that demand has come with increased supply chain challenges too. We’re excited to have a product that is wholly sourced and made in the USA, as it allows us to respond more quickly to changes in demand.”
