(PRESS RELEASE) BEAVERTON, OR — Recognizing that a growing number of pet owners are searching for healthy, wholesome food for their companions, TOP’s Parrot Food announced that it has earned USDA Organic certification for its complete product lineup of pellets, seed mixes and treats.

The company, which just celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2018, recently completed its certification period after a thorough review by the Oregon Department of Agriculture. The result is a lineup of certified organic parrot food products that are made with all organic ingredients and managed with internal processes that meet the rigorous standards of the designation.

“Earning USDA Organic certification is a responsibility that we take very seriously and puts the TOP’s brand in a higher-level category when it comes to offering truly healthy, natural food for parrots,” said Benjamin Ertischek, chief executive officer. “Bird owners around the world can now be 100 percent confident that TOP’s Parrot Food organic products offer the best ingredients for their companions. We are excited to be the only parrot food company that can proudly use the USDA Organic mark and that does not use any fillers, like peanuts, corn or soy, or artificial flavors or colors.”

TOP’s Parrot Food is best known for its proprietary parrot pellets that are made with all natural ingredients. A line of seed mixes for large and small birds, birdie bread mixes, and seed treats completes the company’s product offerings.

According to the USDA, organic certification symbolizes to consumers that best practices and careful stewardship have been put into a company’s products. The certified organic seal guarantees certain safeguards that are verified by a third party, such as using non GMO ingredients.

The company has began rolling out new product packaging featuring the USDA Organic seal and will be fully transitioned in early 2019.

The TOP’s brand is offered nationwide in the U.S. and in 14 countries on four continents. The company has nearly doubled the number of relationships it has with pet retailers and distributors in 2018, according to Ertischek.

(PRESS RELEASE) ST. FRANCIS, WI – Gott Pet Products announces a fresh look for its recently acquired Hound & Gatos dog and cat food line. According to Patrick McGarry, general manager, the bold new logo is appropriate for a strong, dependable brand. The latest can labels, which are designed in warm colors to catch consumers’ eyes and feature pets with real pieces of grilled meat, poultry and fish, “are meant to convey the carnivorous instincts of dogs and cats, as these ancestral formulations recreate a Paleolithic diet for them to enjoy.”

Animal protein-focused nutrition is a claim Hound & Gatos is qualified to make, since all of its 24 canned recipes are formulated with 98% real meat, plus a precisely balanced vitamin-mineral mix. The result is an entirely grain-free line of premium natural foods that can be served as a complete meal or mixed with kibble to enhance flavor and nutrition.

McGarry is confident the updated Hound & Gatos packaging is on-target for a new generation of shoppers, while still catering to the brand’s current loyal customers, and that it will be impactful on retail shelves, because it was optimized with collective feedback from several professionally conducted consumer focus groups. He wanted to reassure retailers and pet owners that despite the package revamp, “no changes have been made to these premium formulas. These remain the same great-tasting recipes that have been pleasing pets for several years.”

The new packaging will be available to retailers and distributors this spring. To learn more about Hound & Gatos, please visit www.houndgatos.com or email info@houndgatos.com
