FROM Truth About Pet Food Site: Susan Thixton 4/12/2012
One of you great Independent Pet Store People out there sent me a ‘heads up’ that their Distributor would not be delivering any products made by Diamond Pet Food; though she received no explanation why. I called Diamond and was told…

CANIDAE All Natural Pet Foods Introduces New Easy-Open, Easy-Pour, Velcro Closures On 30 Pound and Larger Bags, Offering Convenience and Freshness
These revolutionary Velcro closure bags are the first of their kind in the mainstream pet food industry.
San Luis Obispo, CA (PRWEB) March 25, 2009
CANIDAE® All Natural Pet Foods began rolling out its improved, patented Easy-Open, Easy-Pour bags featuring durable Velcro® closures in March.
CANIDAE bags with the new Easy-Open, Easy-Pour, Easy-Seal feature are beginning to appear in the marketplace now on 35 lb. and 44 lb. “Big Bags” of CANIDAE All Life Stages Formula and will soon be featured on all 30 lb. and larger CANIDAE formulas.
These revolutionary Velcro closure bags are the first of their kind in the mainstream pet food industry. The improved design is a direct result of customer feedback for improvements on CANIDAE’s previous easy open, easy pour bag feature. Designed to keep food fresher longer, prevent accidental spills and keep out contaminants, these easy-to-use bags are designed with an exclusive re-sealable pouring spout that allows the pet owner to dispense just the right amount of dog food then seal the bag by pressing the built-in Velcro strip. These patented bags are much easier to open and they re-close and re-seal time and time again without wearing out. Pet owners get a perfect seal every time. Taping the bag or rolling it down to keep food fresh will no longer be necessary.
These new Velcro closures will appear on the 30 pound bags of CANIDAE Lamb and Rice, Chicken and Rice, Beef and Fish, CANIDAE PLATINUM®, Grain Free All Life Stages, Grain Free Salmon, and on both the 35 pound and 44 pound “Big Bag” of CANIDAE All Life Stages.

Due to overwhelming customer support and increased demand on our products, we have been faced with unique production capacity challenges. Our growing customer support and
demand has pushed for increased capacity, therefore we have outsourced additional production from Diamond Pet Foods. Our customers demand and deserve no less than the
highest quality safe ingredients, as well as state of the art consistent manufacturing. Outsourcing additional production from Diamond comes not without first carefully
instating and accepting only the strictest testing protocols, as well as mandating stringent operating procedures to ensure the highest quality products possible at every
level of production. We are very happy with this relationship and the high quality formulations we are able to bring to you. Expect Excellence!
All of our suppliers must follow strict protocols set forth by us. No single employee can be responsible for the testing of incoming ingredients. All testing and reporting
must be confirmed by a second party. In addition all grains are purchased from a single supplier in low aflatoxin risk areas. Even though CANIDAE does not use corn in
any of our products, we are proactive in creating testing procedures to help assure the safety of your pets. Also all CANIDAE formulas are tested during our production
runs, and cleared by a supervisor, every 30 minutes to assure the safety of our line. We understand the level of trust you must have with the foods you feed your pets,
and it’s our responsibility and commitment to deliver!
Our quality of raw material as well as quality control has actual increased not decreased. Yes we have diversified our complex carbohydrates as rice continues to climb
and high quality availability decreases. Our products are better than ever and more consistent. Yes we have cut costs on shipping rates as fuel continues to go through
the roof. To ship pet food from one location is no longer cost effective. Our economy is facing some challenging times and we are being proactive in offering you the
highest quality products, yet affordable enough for our consumers to purchase. We are not sure about other companies and their plans for change or their reasons in the
past, however we feel we are being open and honest about our changes. We are getting many positive feed backs from our customers that are actually feeding their pets
our improved formulas, who also refrain from listening to rumors or incorrect information.
We thank thank you for your comments, and hope you are able to try our products.
June 30, 2008 3:56 pm I wanted to give a heads up to dog owners feeding Canidae products about a few details that the makers of this product aren’t telling you in their sales pitch for their changed formulas: Under the new formulation, Canidae dry foods will no longer be gluten free, due to the addition of barley. If you know that your dog is gluten intolerant, start shopping around for a different food.
