Dried & True Pty Ltd, a wholly Australian owned company has completed construction of its new pet treat drying facility at Howlong in southern NSW, increasing production capacity by 10 times.
Dried & True is owned by a local farming family who has been working in the pet food industry for over 25 years. The company has access to significant volumes of raw materials, with an established daily collection network covering over 25 of Australia's largest abattoirs, sourcing over 100 tonnes of product per day. The new development expands the automated drying capacity to 850m3 of drying oven capacity – able to dry the equivalent of 200,000 pigs ears in a 24 hour period.
Dried & True currently distribute products under the brands "Aussie Pet Health Treat" and "The Healthy Pet Treat Co." in Australian grocery chains and discount variety stores, and also manufacture private label pet treat products for a number of supermarket companies.
