A $50+ billion dollar industry has a lot of brands and fortunately, the pet industry is overloaded with great brand that we have the pleasure to work alongside. This year’s Highest Brand Integrity Award tallied with a tie and for good reason. Criteria for this award involves 4 key objectives:
This year's winners of the Highest Brand Integrity Award goes to : Scout & Zoe's and Front Porch Pets
When we first met Cindy Dunston Quirk, the founder, owner and visionary driving Scout & Zoe’s, we could feel her passion immediately. After learning more about the story behind the products, the pups that fuel the passion and her commitment to developing great products we knew we had identified an award candidate but more importantly, a keen friendship. Scout & Zoe’s products lead by sourcing locally. They are clean, pure, yummy and healthful - a combination we have come to expect in pet products. We look forward to seeing this brand grow and are thankful we crossed paths.
The second winner of the Highest Brand Integrity of the Year Award is Front Porch Pets - known for their fan-tabulous Sam’s Yams Sweet Potato Treats (which so happened to be #2 top selling treat of 2013) is a brand much bigger than a famous root vegetable. Did you know the high-quality ingredients packed into each product are sourced from a 50 mile radius of their company? That is impressive. Their commitment to local trade, quality assurance, functional treat offerings and simply being “gosh darn great people to work with” summarizes their receipt of this award.
