In April 2012, the announcement was made that Merrick Pet Care, Inc. purchased Castor & Pollux. Well, Castor & Pollux founders are back in business, partnering with investment firm CanAm to purchase Darford’s Pet Food and Treats.
From PetProductNewsInternational.com: ” A new company, CanAm Pet Treats Inc., today reported its purchase of Darford International, a Canadian manufacturer of all-natural dog food and treats.
The price paid for Darford, which went into receivership Oct. 23, was not disclosed.
Among the new owners is Brian Connolly, who with his wife, Shelley Gunton, co-founded Castor & Pollux Natural PetWorks, a maker of natural and organic pet food, in 2000 in Clackamas, Ore. They sold the company in April to Merrick Pet Care Inc. of Amarillo, Texas. Connolly and other investors share ownership of CanAm, said spokeswoman Maureen McEwan.
CanAm will focus on producing Darford’s pet treats and fulfilling all outstanding customer orders, McEwan stated. No decision has been made about the future of Darford’s Zero/G food line, she added.”
