Doubling Their Chances, Doubling Their Success

by Food Export | Jul 06, 2016
Best Breed Pet Foods has been in existence since 1994 but had been purely domestic up until 2011. By using the Branded Program themselves for label modifications and the Interzoo show, as well as its use by an export trading company in Asian markets, Best Breed Pet Foods have seen their once fledgling export sales consistently double every year since 2011.

In 2014 they learned a lot about how pet food is marketed in Asia. For the coming year they are planning a digital marketing campaign for the region.

Founded in Ohio in 1994 by veterinarian, Dr. Gary Cotton, DVM ("Dr. Gary"), Best Breed Pet Foods is a privately-held maker of all-natural super premium pet foods that are holistically formulated to promote the health and well-being of your pets.  Today, Best Breed Pet Foods offers 12 different dog and cat food diets, all born out of the “common sense” philosophy that a truly super premium pet food MUST begin with only the highest-quality ingredients.


Food Export uses funding from the Market Access Program (MAP) to help America’s small businesses increase their exports of food and agricultural products; as these exports increase, these small businesses are creating jobs and improving the strength and stability of our agricultural economy. Food Export-Midwest and Food Export-Northeast are non-profit organizations that work in collaboration with their member state departments of agriculture and the USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service. They offer a wide range of programs and services that help boost America’s agricultural exports.
