Tuffy’s Pet Foods in Perham, Minn. announced the opening of its brand new 130,000 square foot manufacturing facility. Tuffy’s is scheduled to commission the new facility on Aug. 19 with a formal opening celebration.
The $70 million facility is built from the ground up to provide the safest environment for food safety, efficiency and flexibility. The facility is designed to meet and exceed the expectations of Tuffy’s customers and the stringent requirements of today’s pet food market. This has been accomplished by combining the most technologically advanced equipment with complete process segregation. The facility expansion comprises more than 180,000 square feet of production and warehouse space to accommodate Tuffy’s’ rapid growth.
Production capacity in the new facility will increase in excess of 50 percent more than the originally facility with planned expansion capabilities for additional growth. The original facility will be converted to warehouse space and an expansion of soft moist treat capacity.
Tuffy’s has been producing dry dog and cat food kibble for more than 50 years. Currently producing kibble for its’ own National Brand offering NutriSource, Pure Vita and Natural Planet as well as numerous co-manufactured products.
