We believe this diverse platform positions us to grow and prosper regardless of channel strength in any particular market or medium. The OurPets ® brand is designed for Pet Specialty, the Pet Zone ® brand is for the Grocery Mass Retail, including Value stores, and both brands are sold on E-Commerce and internationally.
