John Cariglio | Lead Dog

John Cariglio, a former New Yorker, joined PPFC in 2021 as National Sales Manager. In his role, John is responsible for implementing strategic and continued growth across the US and internationally with a concerted focus on pet specialty and natural grocery. Though, if John were asked, he would say that his role is to make dogs across the globe happier and healthier by making PPFC more widely available – and he’s not wrong! Prior to joining the team, John worked with multiple pet food manufacturers, including The Nutro Company (acquired by Mars Petcare), Weruva, and Northwest Naturals. 


Favorite activity to do in Portland: John enjoys getting brunch with friends, exploring local neighborhoods, and visiting the Portland Art Museum.

Favorite PPFC product: PPFC’s Brew Biscuits with Bacon are his favorite because they remind him of his beloved beagle, Mabel. However, it’s worth noting that his current pet, Pearli the cat, loves Rosie’s Beef N’ Rice!
