At Global Pet Foods, we truly believe that pets are undeniably part of the family. That’s why we work hard to provide Canadian pet parents with the highest quality foods, expertise, and unmatched customer service. We couldn’t be happier that Global Pet Foods was awarded the 2021 Brand of the Year in the Animalis Edition of the prestigious World Branding Awards.
“The Animalis Edition of the Awards are an acknowledgement to the tireless effort of the teams that build and maintain their brand presence in an everchanging market in the pet and animal industry,” says Richard Rowles, Chairman of the World Branding Forum.
Global Pet Foods achieved this honour in the National Award Tier, which recognizes the top brands in each participating country at the awards. These are brands that are household names in their home country that have been judged to be truly exceptional.
Dino Fragaglia, President of Global Pet Foods shared:
“It’s fulfilling knowing that our customers recognize our brand and we’re extremely proud of that achievement. Pet Parents also recognize our strong reputation as leaders in pet specialty innovation, which authenticates our core beliefs.”
Reaching out to the pet community at large and the welfare of companion animals is important to the Global Pet Foods brand.
“Our role in local communities through our Global Pets & Animals Foundation and annual Show Us Your Heart program supports animal rescues which is a commitment we share with our customers.” says Jim Walker, Executive Chairman of Global Pet Foods.
The third Animalis Edition of the Awards, which focuses on Pet & Animal Brands, took place on September 9, 2021, and saw 150 brands from 41 countries named “Brand of the Year” in the first-ever virtual awards ceremony held in the history of the awards. The brands were nominated by over 115,000 consumers from six continents for the special biennial Animal Edition which focuses on awarding the best pet & animal brands from around the world. Over 1,000 brands from around the world were nominated for the 2021 Animalis Edition of the awards.
Paul Thomson, CEO of Global Pet Foods adds:
“Global Pet Foods strives to create the best possible customer experience for pet owners across Canada. Our brand message supports this goal.
The Brand of the Year Award is a wonderful testament to the team effort directed towards this goal.
Thank you to our management group and staff, our marketing consultants, our vendors, and, of course, the franchise associates who make our brand message a reality for our customers.”

Ontario, Canada (March 1, 2021) – Nutram Pet Products, a Canadian pet nutrition company located and produced in Elmira, Ontario, Canada, will be donating $1 for every bag of Nutram sold to a charity within your local community.
In May 2020, Nutram recognized the challenge many animal shelters were facing amidst the pandemic. The Canadian company launched Vote for Humane Kind, a campaign to select the top 10 charitable pet shelters, as voted by communities across Canada, to each receive $5,000.
“We wanted to contribute to the increased need for pet shelter funding as a result of the pandemic,” said Heather McKay, Brand Manager, Nutram. “This led to our heightened awareness of the many charitable causes, both pet and human-related, that could benefit from our support.”
As a result, Nutram has decided to launch Feed4, and will be donating $1 for every bag of Nutram sold, large or small, to a local charity selected by each of their Canadian-owned retailers.
“With every bag of Nutram purchased, your dollar supports Canadian nutrition, Canadian farmers, and Canadian retailers,” McKay says. “Now, your dollar goes even further to support a charity within your local community. The pandemic has really encouraged us, as Canadians, to support fellow Canadians.”
Nutram, exclusively sold in Canadian-owned retailers, has tasked Canadian pet specialty stores to select a charitable cause within their own community as the recipient of their donation.
McKay says they’re thrilled to be seeing the wide range of charitable causes being selected by pet specialty stores. “We’ve seen everything from local dog and cat rescues, to homeless shelters, to child Christmas gift-giving charitable organizations. Everyone has selected organizations that resonate with their own communities.”
The Feed4 donations will be backdated to all bags purchased from January 1, 2021 and will continue to accumulate on all Nutram bag purchases for 2021.

Since 1993, Nutram has been a 100% Canadian, family-owned pet wellness company. Taking a holistic approach to pet nutrition, Nutram offers all-natural pet food options for dogs and cats, produced in their privately-owned world-class production facility in Elmira, Ontario.

There are many great reasons to feeding both wet and dry formulas. While pets don’t require both, offering flavors, toppers and textures adds variety to your pet’s diet which can help foster the human-animal bond. If you think about the ways that we as humans eat, we find variety enjoyable, and it can be fun to share that experience with our pets.
Wet food contains higher moisture content and provides your pet with an additional source of hydration. While crunchy kibble can help to provide oral health benefits.
It is important dogs and cats recognize all forms of food throughout their lives and find them desirable in the event they require a specific medically managed diet. You should try to ensure that your pet doesn’t find a certain texture unappealing. When feeding both wet and dry, make sure that you discuss how much of each you should be feeding with your veterinarian to ensure that you don’t overfeed. Additionally, when feeding both wet and dry it’s important to ensure that your pet is getting their daily dose of nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
Natural Balance® wet and dry formulas are nutritionally complete which allows you to mix and match. If you are looking to add wet food into your pet’s diet, we recommend pairing your dry formula with the matching wet formula.

Global Pet Foods & Champion Petfoods Team up to Support Frontline Medical Professionals Across Canada
During these unprecedented times, we all need to work together and support one another. That’s why two proudly Canadian companies, Global Pet Foods and Champion Petfoods, are teaming up to give away 2,000 bags of ACANA® or ORIJEN® pet food across the country to frontline medical professionals.
Over the last few months, the staff at hospitals, specifically, have been putting their own health, safety, and needs on the backburner to support their communities and the people within, so it’s more important than ever to show our appreciation for their commitment to the local Canadian communities we are so involved with.
During the next few weeks, the Global Pet Foods team will be reaching out to hospitals in the hardest hit areas across the country to offer the frontline medical professionals a free bag of ACANA® or ORIJEN® pet food.
“We are so thankful to have these medical professionals committed to helping those in need within our communities across the country,” says Dino Fragaglia, president of Global Pet Foods, “And this is our way of saying ‘Thank You’ directly to those who need to hear it most.”
Thank You Medical Professionals! There are not enough words to express how thankful we are for your continuous support within Canadian communities across the country.
