Canadian pet-food company Jupiter has entered a partnership with Food 4 Pets Canada as they seek to establish a position in both dry and wet dog and cat foods.
Quebec-based Jupiter was set up in 2019 by two family-run businesses – Canadian poultry processor Groupe Inovo and Groupe Legault, which owns the Mondou pet-store chain. The company is building a production facility in the city of Drummondville which is expected to be up and running by the end of the year for its dry food range.
Food 4 Pets Canada is a wet pet-food manufacturer founded in 2017 in the town of Acton Vale, also in Quebec, and supplies customers in the US and Canada, and also Europe.
“By pooling their respective strengths, our two companies will give rise to a major manufacturing group in the pet-food industry,” Jean-Philippe Désilets, a founding partner of Jupiter, said in a statement today (24 March).
just-food has contacted Jupiter for more specific details on the transaction between the two parties, including the terms of the agreement.
