VE is the first pet food brand to be available via a frozen food delivery service.




(PRESS RELEASE) GREEN BAY, WI and BLOOMINGTON, MN – Vital Essentials, the flagship brand of the Carnivore Meat Company, announced a partnership with Yelloh (formerly known as Schwan’s Home Delivery). Yelloh, a U.S.-wide, direct-to-consumer company, offers high-quality frozen foods that are convenient for consumers. Both Yelloh and Vital Essentials share the same commitment to superior food quality and safety standards, and through this partnership, both companies will tap into new market opportunities while providing optimal pet wellness to more customers.

Vital Essentials has been a leader in providing all pet owners with an avenue to purchase high-quality, premium butcher-cut protein for their pets. This partnership provides Vital Essentials with the opportunity to provide pet consumers, who may not have visibility to the brand today, a premium product offering in the frozen and freeze-dried dog food business.

“Through a partnership with Yelloh, Vital Essentials is firmly positioned to push forward its commitment to providing butcher-cut, premium proteins to all pet owners looking to provide their pets with the highest quality in frozen and freeze-dried food,” said Nick Ebert, chief commercial officer at Vital Essentials. “We are on a mission to build a future of VITALity for pets and their humans, and this is a great way for Vital Essentials to broaden our offering scope,” said Ebert.

As a pioneer in frozen food delivery, Yelloh is consistently leading the meal delivery market in innovation and transformation, positioning them favorably to capture new market opportunities. In addition to working with the first pet food brand to offer frozen food delivery service, Yelloh will now acquire a new market segment of pet owners looking to provide their pets with the highest quality, butcher-cut protein.

Bernardo Santana, chief customer officer at Yelloh, said, “We are excited to partner with Vital Essentials through our Partner Pick program and strengthen our offerings with the highest quality of whole-animal protein for our customers’ pets. Through this program, we look to curate unique and exciting culinary delights from favorite, pioneering brands who share the same entrepreneurial spirit rooted in our company’s history. As we continue on our reinvention journey, we look forward to expanding this new channel and bringing Vital Essentials high-quality pet products to households across America.”
