Press release: Austin and Kat
Seattle-based company Austin and Kat, purveyor of CBD wellness biscuits and oils for pets, recently entered into a distributorship agreement with renowned pet food distributor, Pet Food Experts.
“In an answer to the growing demand for our biscuits and oils, I’m excited beyond measure to be working with Pet Food Experts,” says Kat Donatello, Founder. “With more than 500 stores in the four-corners states, I am thrilled to be partnering with the PFX team to provide our products to both current and new customers.”
Austin and Kat will be distributed in PFX’s Pacific Northwest territory, which includes over 500 customers in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana.
“Extending our distribution in this area allows us to ultimately meet and help more pets – and their owners,” says Kat. “It’s an honor and a pleasure to work with them, and I’m looking forward to a very bright future together.”
Pet Food Experts is a fourth generation family-owned and operated company, headquartered in Pawtucket, RI. Pet Food Experts delivers to over 4,000 retailers in 32 states out of five distribution centers (Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Washington, and Colorado).
“With the growing Hemp/CBD category, we are thrilled to be able to offer Austin and Kat to our Pacific Northwest customers,” says Antoine Seailles, Market Strategy Manager at Pet Food Experts. “Austin and Kat meets the high standards we look for in our vendor partners. It will be a great addition to our portfolio.”
Austin and Kat began in Kat’s home kitchen in 2014, as a way to assist her aging dog Brady into his golden years with the help of a naturally occurring component of hemp called cannabidiol (CBD). It soon grew into a full-fledged product line of biscuits and oils – and continues to expand today to answer the growing demand of the marketplace.
Austin and Kat CBD wellness products have been shown to ease pain, calm inflammation, and quell anxiety. All products are still created by hand, in small batches, using the very best all natural, gluten free, and locally sourced ingredients.
