Mackle Pet Foods increases Naturo range - Jan 2018

Local County Armagh Company, Mackle Pet Foods, will this week see the launch of its new Naturo Grain Free Trays 400g Variety 6 pack, and Naturo Grain & Gluten Free Cans 390g Variety 6 packs, and the sales of its Naturo Grain Free Chicken & Potato with vegetables 400g trays into over 1,400 Sainsbury’s stores respectively in the UK, doubling its existing store distribution.  The family owned business has been creators of high quality Pet Foods, for over 45 years, with well-known brands including Brandy, Cat Club which are distributed across Ireland, UK, and Naturo which is exported to 14 countries, including the UK, Europe, Dubai (UAE) and Iran. ‘Naturo’, which was created by Mackle Pet Foods over 7 years ago, is made with 100% natural ingredients, locally sourced and fully traceable.  In 2017, the company invested over £3 million into its Naturo manufacturing facility in Moy, enabling it to more than double production.  The company employs over 200 staff locally across its sites in Moy and Moygashel.
 
Mackle Pet Foods has been working with Sainsburys to introduce its two new ranges, and increase distribution across the UK, of its Naturo range.  The Grain Free Trays, and Grain & Gluten Free Cans are both high in quality, and contain natural, grain-free ingredients helping dogs who have problems with their digestive systems, stomach problems, or who require additional vitamin and mineral support through their diet.  Already Mackle Pet Food supply nineteen Naturo product ranges to Sainsburys.
 
Commenting on the addition of the increase in Naturo product into Sainsburys, Claire McNally, Marketing Manager for Naturo, said;
 
“We are delighted to be strengthening our relationship with Sainsbury’s who are now selling our health pet food range through over 1,400 stores respectively in the UK.  The launch of the two new product lines mean that natural pet food is more accessible for pet owners, who are looking to purchase healthy pet food from the supermarket at the same time as shopping for their family. We recognise and have responded to the demand for high quality, grain free products by consumers, with the two new ranges of grain free, and grain and gluten free, both of which are ideal for dogs with digestive and health issues. By increasing the Naturo Grain Free Chicken & Potato with vegetables product to 1,000 stores, Sainsbury’s is clearly responding to pet owners who are looking for more natural food choices for pets.”
 
Sainsbury’s is also the first UK retailer to stock Naturo grain free wet cat food range in 400 of its stores.  The range contains 4 varieties of mousse, with 80% high quality meat and added taurine for normal heart function and vision – filled with health promoting ingredients.
