01:05: Type on screen: WE OWN OUR PET FOOD PLANTS
Chris: Here at Nutro, we own our own plants.
Art: It’s made here. We have 100 percent control of it.
Chris: We are obsessed with being clean.
Art: We get visitors in that, you know, are wowed by what they see.
Chris: Every tour that I have ever given here at Nutro, the tour always tells me that this is the cleanest pet food plant that they have ever been in.
Lisa: Everybody here understands that regardless of whether you’re sweeping the floor, or whether you’re cooking the food, or whether you’re packaging it out, or whether you’re the site manager … everybody’s job is important.
Chris: We don’t rely on a co-packer to help us make our product.
Lisa: At a co-packer, you have no idea.
Art: You really don’t have that control. You don’t know truly what that co-packer is doing with your product. So, we have that 100 percent control over it. I think (it) gives us just a, you know, fantastic advantage over our competitors.
Lisa: We know exactly what’s on the label is what’s in the bag.
