Dr. Marty Pets, the canine and feline brand offering premium freeze-dried raw dog and cat food and supplements, has opened Golden Pet Manufacturing, enabling a robust supply chain with efficient product production in Richfield, WI. The facility will be run under Dr. Marty Pets’ affiliate, Golden Hippo and will produce roughly 140 new jobs, both locally and nationally.
Created by Dr. Marty Goldstein, a leader in the field of veterinary medicine for more than 45 years, Dr. Marty Pets utilizes his revolutionary approach to formulating raw food and natural pet supplements to help support the health and vitality of four-legged family members. As Dr. Marty Pets has grown, Goldstein took the next step to expand his vision of supplying pet parents all around the world with high-quality, health-supporting pet formulas. The opening of the new Golden Pet Manufacturing production facility, under Dr. Marty Pets’ affiliate Golden Hippo, will help bring this vision to fruition and fine-tune the brand’s already high-quality control.
“This gives us the opportunity to trace raw ingredients, improve upon our already high-quality control and create a better sustainability story for our food products,” said Head of Retail for Dr. Marty Pets, Dan Markenson. “Our retail partners are excited about our ability to continue our great level of service as we rapidly grow our business with them.”
The new factory will enable Dr. Marty Pets, in conjunction with Golden Pet Manufacturing, to personally monitor the quality of the ingredients and source its own raw ingredients. The new food plan will increase the production to fulfill the high demand of best-selling products, such as Dr Marty Pets Nature’s Blend Essential Wellness and Dr. Marty Pets Joey’s Favorites freeze-dried salmon treats.
On average, Dr. Marty Pets has grown at a rapid 20 percent per year. To keep up with the brand’s robust sales, they will leverage this new facility to increase production of its premium pet food products. With rising demand comes the increase of energy and materials. To offset the environmental effects, Dr. Marty Pets has instilled sustainable practices in the new manufacturing facility.
The sustainable aspects of the new Golden Pet Manufacturing production facility include:
- High-Efficiency Boilers and Water Heaters
- Technologically advanced HPP pumps for 15 percent energy reduction
- New recycling programs
- Sending inedible products to a rendering company for reuse
