WellPet, a leading natural pet food manufacturer, announced today it has acquired Sojos, the Minneapolis-based raw pet food and gourmet treats manufacturer.

“Ward and Maggie Johnson have built one of the most exciting brands in raw nutrition and a first class team and manufacturing facility,” said WellPet CEO Tim Callahan, in a statement. “WellPet and Sojos share a mission to transform the lives of pets by providing the very best in natural nutrition and, now, our collaboration will enable them to grow and serve more pet families while staying true to the Sojos we know and love.”

Sojos joins Wellness®, Old Mother Hubbard®, Eagle Pack® and Holistic Select® in the WellPet family of premium, natural pet food and treat brands. Together, WellPet’s brands have more than 100 years’ experience serving pets with the finest quality pet foods and treats.

“Our dream has always been to fundamentally change the way that people feed their pets and with WellPet we believe Sojos is in an even better position to make that dream a reality,” said Sojos’ Ward Johnson, in a press release.

Sojos foods and treats will continue to be manufactured in Minneapolis at Sojos’ facilities.
