The acquisition reportedly strengthens the position of United Petfood as a “full-service” private label pet food producer.
The group stated that the acquisition of Cambrian Pet Foods will allow the company to extend its product range and be a “one-stop solution” for its customers.
Cambrian Pet Foods was founded in 1982 with three production plants in Llangadog, Pencader and Longridge, employing 130 people. The company specialises in the private label production of dry pet food and wet pet food in both trays and cans.
With three additional production plants, United Petfood Group suggested it will now operate out of 17 pet food facilities situated in 8 different European countries.
Cambrian Pet Foods’ board of directors, said: “It has been a genuine pleasure partnering with our colleagues, customers and suppliers to help the company grow and develop within our communities and the UK Pet Trade.
“For four decades, Cambrian has demonstrated, time and again, its resilience and its ability to innovate and grow while delivering consistent quality and service to its customers, pets and pet parents alike.”
They added: “We cannot think of a better, more capable, safer and more potent home than within the United Petfood Family as the journey of growth, development and improvement are continued.”
