NASHVILLE, Tenn., June 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today's pet parents want to know that the dog food they choose isn't just good enough – but that the food they're choosing includes honest, natural nutrition and flavor, not artificial colors and additives. That's why NUTRO™ Brand, a leader in pet nutrition for more than 90 years, is releasing two new NUTRO™ dog food lines made with real, honestly sourced ingredients for natural, high-quality nutrition. FARM'S HARVEST™ dog food, featuring real fruits and veggies you can actually see, and NUTRO™ ROTATIONS™ dog food, which gives pet parents the ability to mix up their menu and not their stomach.
"From ingredient sourcing to safety checks and product production, we know how important it is to pet owners that the pet food they choose is made honestly and responsibly," said Keith Danoff, marketing director, the NUTRO™ Brand at Mars Petcare. "Our products are produced in our own U.S. facilities with 600 quality checks per day so that our pet parents can trust they're giving their dog a meal that's carefully made with the finest all-natural ingredients – sourced from our team of trusted suppliers."
Along with the new products, the NUTRO™ brand is launching a new advertising campaign to reinforce that NUTRO™ reveals the whole truth about their food – providing the honesty that pet parents can rely on. Produced by BBDO, a 15-second TV spot featuring a farmer and his dog highlights the high-quality, ingredients used to make NUTRO™ products. It also showcases the brand's close relationship with its farmers and suppliers – many of whom the company has long-term relationships with – underscoring the natural, farm-to-bowl nature of NUTRO™ products. This new advertising builds on the brand's new 30-second Honest to Dog spot, which reinforces that while some dog food brands only talk about their first ingredient, NUTRO™ Brand cares about every ingredient, from first to last.
