TORONTO, Aug. 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Paw4mance® Pet Products International Inc. (OTC Pink:PAWP) (the Company) is pleased to announce its expansion program into the US Market.
After a study of the North American market, the Company has decided to establish its headquarters in the US to tap into the estimated $55.3 Billion Dollars US pet food market. The company is searching out factories to produce our unique brand of pet food as well as engage US Distributors to gain a rapid entrance into the large US Market.
With the establishment of the US Headquarters, the company looks to appoint American Board members with years of pet product experience to head its North American operation from its US Headquarters.
The US Pet Food Industry:
Based on the latest numbers from the American Pet Products Association the US alone (http://www.americanpetproducts.org/press_industrytrends.asp) will spend an estimated $55.3 Billion Dollars on their pets in 2013, of that number over $20 Billion Dollars will be represented by the pet food sector. Paw4mance® has formulated a "holistic" dog food blend that has breeders and pet owners alike requesting it for their "furry friends". Unlike other wheat based dog foods, "Our product is a healthy alternative to the highly marketed far lesser quality foods," stated Dennis dos Santos, President of Paw4mance®. "In the process of exploring strategic alternatives for the Company we became aware of avenues for entry into the US market, and are now further investigating those pathways."
The Company's Canadian offices, located at 259 Edgeley Blvd, Unit 2 in Vaughan, Ontario will continue to serve as the Canadian arm of the Company.
