California-based Barkstrong, LLC has completed its acquisition of Pioneer Naturals dog food today and, through a distribution partnership with several key regional pet specialty distributors, is widening the reach of their affordable all-natural pet food.

The brand contains a kibble that is U.S.-sourced and cooked at the lowest possible “safe” temperature. The objective there is to effectively handle any raw material pathogens while striving to maintain the maximum amount of nutrients biologically available after the cooking process. Dogs, like people, thrive best on a diet comprised of real, healthy, nutrient-rich food, which is why Pioneer Naturals places its focus on premium ingredients.

The company’s potato free formulas boast a combination of probiotics, fruits, vegetables, and flax, as well as fish-based oils such as salmon (to provide for better Omega-3 absorption rates than non-animal based oils). The optimization of nutrition in every bite is what Pioneer strives to achieve while keeping its palatability high.

It will be available to pet specialty in Washington, Oregon, Southern California, Illinois and Western Canada.

The current product line includes Grain Free Chicken, Grain Free Whitefish, and Regular Buffalo (all available in 25-pound bags).

This news comes after Barkstrong’s recent acquisitions of Great Life Pet Food and Wild Calling! Pet Foods.
