AUSTIN, TEXAS — Grocery Pup, a health and wellness company touted as redefining the dog food standard, announced this week the launch of their all-natural, fresh food in Tomlinson’s Feed, a natural, healthy pet supply retailer in the Austin and Central Texas area.
This development marks the first physical retail point of purchase for Grocery Pup and the first-of-its-kind product available at Tomlinson’s Feed, officials said in a press advisory. Grocery Pup meals are made with fresh, whole food, human-grade, non-GMO ingredients, as cooked at home. All recipes are cooked sous-vide in a USDA certified kitchen to lock in the nutrients, taste, and texture of their meats and whole veggies and fruits, while still eliminating any harmful pathogens and bacteria.
“Our dog Lola never took to eating raw food, but I wanted her to have a fresh whole foods diet that utilized human-grade ingredients. My passion for finding the healthiest, most nutritious food possible that also made Lola excited for meal time led to the creation of Grocery Pup,” said Ruth Stedman, CEO and co-founder of Grocery Pup, in a prepared statement. “Tomlinson’s Feed is an Austin-based family business, just like Grocery Pup, and it was the perfect partner for us to launch our product into retail.”
Officials said partnering with a local retailer such as Tomlinson’s Feed was a natural fit as both companies prioritize health and wellness for their customers. Beginning Oct. 11, all 15 Tomlinson’s Feed locations will carry all three Grocery Pup recipes (Turkey Pawella, Bitchin Beef and Porky’s Luau) in a 5-pound bag located in the freezer section as a featured product. Each recipe was developed by a veterinarian nutritionist. Each bag will retail for $39.99.
“The mission of Tomlinson’s Feed is to do what’s best for our guests and their pets that align with our core values,”, said Scott Click, owner of Tomlinson’s Feed, “We are excited to partner with Grocery Pup and showcase a new type of fresh, high-quality sous-vide cooked dog food with our customers.”
In addition to Tomlinson’s Feed stores, Grocery Pup a-la-carte bags and meal subscription service is available online and ships nationwide. For more information visit www.grocerypup.com.
