For the Love of Pets
Pets are an integral part of many people’s lives, including many at Kalsec®. A lesser-known fact about the Kalsec headquarters in Kalamazoo, Michigan, is that a “doggie daycare” is available on-site for employees. This allows employees at this location to bring their furry best friend to work to have a play date with fellow employees’ dogs each day. Employees have the opportunity to visit their dogs during lunch breaks and have the comfort of knowing they are nearby and safe.
As both pet advocates and pet food ingredient suppliers, we like to stay up-to-date on pet food trends. Just in time for Petfood Forum, here are some reliable industry articles on pet food trends.
