Body Parts and Meat Treats

Meat-based treats are full of protein that’s vital to a pet’s diet. The amino acids in protein act like building blocks that help the tissues and organs of the body while creating hormones and enzymes and also supporting the immune system.

One of the most in-demand treats among consumers are those that are all-natural and made with human-grade meat from an animal that’s been raised humanely without antibiotics or added hormones. Raw/freeze-dried treats also continue to grow in popularity, especially the single-ingredient variety. Custom chew bars featuring a variety of body part treats displayed in buckets, bins or draws are becoming popular ways of enticing consumers to snatch up such tantalizing treats as bones, bully sticks and trachea.

Any savvy retailer will be sure to carry a wide variety of these revenue-generating products for their dedicated customers.
