In 2014, Rosie, Kate’s 14-year-old Poodle, lost her appetite and her health declined. Determined to find something healthy that Rosie would love, Kate began cooking meals for her at home. She used locally-sourced, natural ingredients, and Rosie loved it. She regained her appetite and stayed strong for two and a half more years, living to 16 ½ years old! Just like that, Portland Pet Food Company (PPFC) was born.
Over the last three years, Portland Pet Food Company has experienced substantial growth and is projected to grow to double its’ revenue in 2022. Today, they help dogs thrive with the same nutritious, human-grade, meals and treats that were formulated in Kate’s kitchen years ago, including her focus on fresh, local ingredients and sustainability. Cat meals are planned to launch in the Summer of 2022.
