Press Release: Green Acres Now Offers the NutriSource Family of Pet Foods
For Immediate ReleaseTuesday, July 14, 2009 Contact: Don Hanson Green Acres Kennel Shop 945-6841 [Bangor]- On July 16th, Green Acres Kennel Shop will proudly add the NutriSource family of pet foods to the wholesome and healthy foods offered at their Bangor store. NutriSource, based in Perham, MN, has been manufacturing pet foods for 40 years and super premium foods since 2003. Located in the heart of America's "breadbasket," NutriSource is able to purchase the freshest raw ingredients from local growers, ensuring the quality necessary for optimum nutrition. Today the family-owned business produces three super premium food lines; NutriSource, Pure Vita and Natural Planet Organics. All of the NutriSource products meet Green Acres stringent criteria for a holistic pet food. A superior source of animal protein is the first ingredient, and all grains and vegetables are whole and unprocessed. The foods are supplemented with digestive enzymes and pre and probiotics and preserved naturally with no unnecessary content from artificial colors and sweeteners. The NutriSource brand has made the Whole Dog Journals list of "Approved Dry Foods" every year since 2006. There are a total of ten dog formulas and one cat formula in the line. Depending on the formula chosen, the daily feeding cost for a 50lb dog ranges from $0.62 to $0.84 Launched in 2007, Natural Planet Organics has been on the Whole Dog Journals list of "Approved Dry Foods" every year since 2008. Offered in two formulas; one for dogs and one for cats, this food is certified organic by Oregon Tilth. Its first ingredient is organic chicken and the daily feeding cost for a 50lb dog is only $1.24 Pure Vita is NutriSource's newest product line. It is offered in three formulas; Duck, Salmon, and Chicken, as a single source protein food which is ideal for dogs with allergies and food intolerance issues. Introduced in the summer of 2008, it first appeared on Whole Dog Journals list of "Approved Dry Foods" in February of this year. Acai Berries and Pomegranate are added to Pure Vita as natural sources of antioxidants. The daily feeding cost for a 50lb dog ranges from $1.31 to $1.44. Green Acres' co-owner Don Hanson indicated that Green Acres will be offering a frequent buyer program on all of the NutriSource products that entitles customers to a free bag once they have purchased twelve bags in any combination. Hanson stated that one of the things that really impressed him about NutriSource as a company was their openness about providing date on their food such as the food density and kilocalories per cup. This information is necessary to calculate actual feeding costs and is available in NutriSource's brochures and on their web site. Low quality foods tend to refuse to release this information and even many of the super premium brands make it difficult to obtain. In business since 1965, Green Acres Kennel Shop at 1653 Union Street is a Pet Care Services Association (PCSA) accredited facility offering boarding, daycare and grooming for dogs and cats, as well as pet behavior consultations and training classes. The Green Acres retail store offers a wide variety of wholesome pet foods, treats and quality supplies. For more information, please call 945-6841 or visit www.greenacreskennel.com.
