Fellow Directors are Joanne Smith, Jeremy and Mary Stewart.  Jeremy is former CFO of K9 Natural Food Ltd. 

Pet nutrition is Calvin’s passion, he enjoys seeing pets thrive when they are fed the highest quality food.  The company follows the simple philosophy of good pet health via better nutrition.  Calvin describes freeze drying as the ultimate means for preservation of nutrients and protein, “freeze drying is the most natural way of preserving food, especially proteins from meat and fish.” 

 Pet Nutrition New Zealand see the freeze dried pet food category changing fast, “it’s still an emerging niche of the market, but recent strong growth of over 40 per cent per annum has led many brands to look at extending their product offering into this category.”  The Directors grasped the opportunity to take quality New Zealand produce to pets of the world and Pet Nutrition New Zealand LP was born, “with the increased focus on higher protein levels for pets it is only natural that freeze drying will continue to increase in popularity.”
