Summit, which was recently acquired by Animal Supply Company, will carry the Sojos line of shelf-stable raw pet food and gourmet treats and expand the brand’s market share throughout the southeastern states, including North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.
“Animal Supply Company has been our top distributor for the past two years and we are excited about their acquisition of Summit,” Rob Mellem, Sojos national sales manager, said
Sunburst will carry the Sojos line of shelf-stable raw pet food and gourmet treats and will expand the brand’s market share throughout Arizona.
“Because of their representation in Arizona and commitment to representation of healthy pet foods, we look to take advantage of the huge potential for growth in that area,” Mellem said.
In addition, the company announced that Cole Meierstein, Eastern sales rep for Sojos, is moving his home base to Brooklyn, N.Y.
Cole has been living in Atlanta for the past year and will continue to support the Eastern region of the U.S. He works with stores east of the Mississippi, in Canada and in Puerto Rico.
“Living in the southeast for the past year enabled me to forge genuine relationships with a lot of retail stores,” Cole said. “This is also why I’m so excited to be living in N.Y. I can’t wait to hit the ground.”
