Penford/Indigenous™ Pet Products History
Penford Corporation’s roots date back to 1895. Over the years, Penford utilized its expertise in carbohydrate science to introduce innovative solutions to the paper industry and then in 1991 to the food industry. Our innovative capabilities build nutritional platforms that address digestive, glycemic and heart health as well as weight management. This know-how built the foundation for a pet nutrition program. As a result, Indigenous™ Pet Products was born.
Penford Corporation employs over 400 people. The headquarters is located in Centennial, Colorado. It has R&D Centers in Colorado and Iowa, plants located across the United States, as well as global distribution network. Penford sells food ingredients for both human and companion pet, pet & animal endurance gel and dental health bones, paper products and bioproducts internationally.
Why Indigenous Pet Products?
Our passion and purpose is to improve the health, vitality, and happiness of our most beloved animal companions. We are committed to finding the perfect blend of science and nature. By combining our depth of knowledge and experience with human nutritional sciences, and our commitment to best utilize nature’s vast array of wholesome and natural ingredients, we have created products that are second to none. Some pet companies are just “marketing” brands; we actually design, test, and manufacture our premium products from start to finish. We are also committed to sustaining natural resources and to making our products and packaging in the USA.
At Indigenous Pet, we believe nutrition is the gateway to pet happiness. Our nutritional knowledge and research along with market awareness fuels the innovation to create products that support various health platforms such as skin, coat, heart, joint, dental and weight. We understand that health is provided via various approaches; hence, we tout our innovative delivery systems.
