FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Portland, Oregon— October 12, 2017—Portland Pet Food Company’s new subscription service creates an easy solution for dog owners who want to make USA-sourced, all-natural and sustainable meals and treats a regular part of their dog’s holistic diet.
With the ‘subscribe and save’ feature on all products, customers can schedule their dogs’ favorite meals and treats to arrive as frequently as weekly to every 8 weeks. Consumers will receive a discount of 40% on their first order, with 10% off every subsequent subscription order, making it the most budget-friendly way to incorporate all-natural ingredients into their dog’s diet.
Scheduled deliveries have become an essential part of the online shopping experience. In the past three years, subscription services have grown by 3,000%, according to Shorr Packaging. By providing the ability to schedule regular deliveries, Portland Pet Food Company hopes to simplify dog owners’ lives so they can spend less time shopping and more time enjoying their pets.
“We know how hectic life can be, along with remembering to shop for dog food,” said Kate McCarron, Portland Pet Food Company owner. “We want to make sure dogs have the elements needed for a holistic diet, without their owners having to scramble to buy one-time orders.”
Coupled with Portland Pet Food Company’s earth-friendly packaging, receiving bulk shipments is a good way to lower shipping and packaging costs. The unique sustainable and portable meal packaging takes up 11 times less spaced than a traditional can of dog food. Weighing only 9 oz. and having a shelf life of 2 years, the all-natural ultra- premium dog meals are easy to buy in bulk and store. These pre-cooked entrees are intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding, according to AAFCO guidelines.
McCarron began Portland Pet Food as a way to incorporate natural ingredients into her elderly standard poodle Rosie's diet. Today, it is the only food she feeds her dogs.
“I do not believe in supplementing wholesome, nutrient-rich food. Our recipes are formulated for a dog’s nutritional needs,” McCarron said. "Rotational feeding is an excellent way to add wholesome natural food to commercially-approved kibble if you desire too.”
Suggested uses include:
- As a rotational meal or delicious topper to add nutrition and flavor variety to kibble or wet meals.
- As a soft treat or meal, especially for those who are older, struggle to eat or take medication.
- As a treat meal for an already balanced diet.
After success with Rosie’s Beef 'n Rice and Hopkins' Pork 'n Potatoes, next month, Portland Pet Food Company will add seasonal favorites Tuxedo's Chicken & Yams and holiday favorite Grandma Ada's Turkey & Yams to the subscription model.
Handcrafted in small batches, PFC's 9 oz. shelf stable pouches have an MSRP of $6.49. PPFC dog treats range from $9.99-$10.99.
