MANCHESTER, N.H., April 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Velcro Industries announced that Wellness® Natural Pet Food, has integrated VELCRO® Brand's PRESS-LOK® closure into the packaging of its premium TruFood® line. PRESS-LOK® delivers the reliability, durability and strength that consumers have come to expect from other VELCRO® Brand products.

"Wellness'® mission is to provide pet owners with high quality, natural ingredients," said Chanda D. Leary-Coutu, Senior Manager, Marketing Communications, Wellness® Natural Pet Food. "Like us, Wellness pet parents view their cats and dogs as part of the family, so it's important that our ingredients are fresh and the packaging we deliver our products in meets customers' expectations."

As Raw-Inspired, Living Nutrition, Wellness® TruFood® is blended by hand and baked in small batches to create delicious, natural meals. Made with colorful ingredients you can see like chicken, beets, coconut oil, kale, pumpkin and live active yogurt cultures, TruFood® recipes are living proof that real nutrition is the most fundamental source of health and happiness for your pets.
"PRESS-LOK® closures add an important value for customers who are seeking to keep their products fresh, easy-to-access and most of all, contained," said Chris Lerra, Senior Business Development Manager of Packaging Business Unit, Velcro Industries. "We're continuing to see adoption in the pet product market because the closure is ideal for the unique needs and requirements of pet owners and we're honored to be featured in WellPet's natural pet food line."
