AURORA, ON, Sept. 15, 2016 /CNW/ - Buddy's Kitchen, a leading Canadian manufacturer of fresh food and snacks for dogs and cats, has ranked No. 35 in the STARTUP 50, a ranking of Canada's top new growth companies by Canadian Business and PROFIT.
Buddy's Kitchen is extremely proud and grateful to be amongst this select group that ranks Canada's Top New Growth Companies by a two-year revenue growth. The Startup 50 profiles the country's fastest growing young businesses and is published in the October issue of Canadian Business and online at PROFITguide.com as part of the annual PROFIT 500 ranking. Buddy's Kitchen recorded a two-year revenue growth of 245% to make the 2016 list.
Founder and Chief Dog Wagger Peter Kaufman credits his company's commitment and strong discipline to core values, purpose, talented people and product innovation as the drivers to continued hyper growth.
"We make life changing food that combines passion with love," Kaufman declares. "Discriminating pet parents want to feed their 'fur-babies' the safest and healthiest Canadian sourced and Canadian made, all-natural, fresh food and treats. However, that 'want' comes with tremendous responsibility to inject 'honesty' and 'transparency' into the consumables we manufacture and into how we communicate with our stakeholders."
"Growth does not happen in isolation and Buddy's Kitchen recognizes that we only grow when our clients grow. As both a private label OEM manufacturer and a 'direct to pet' home delivery service, Buddy's Kitchen thanks all who made this possible by choosing us as a trusted partner."
James Cowan, Editor-in-Chief of Canadian Business and PROFIT, states: "These young companies promise to transform Canada's economy through innovation and determination. Their stories of early success are truly inspiring."
