“All products created at PetDine are 100 percent unique and custom to each client,” said Jarosz. “I strongly believe in creating clear product differentiation for each of our clients’ brands to operate confidently. My background using formulation to balance a product’s functionality with ingredients will be beneficial to all PetDine clients.”
Jarosz grew up on a row crop farming and cattle operation in Nebraska.

Together with his wife and two children, the family enjoys outdoor adventures and anything involving animals.
