C.J. Foods Acquires Day Six Pet Nutrition
C.J. Foods Inc., manufacturer of dry, superpremium pet food, has acquired Day Six Pet Nutrition, which also specializes in manufacturing specialty dry pet food brands, from Jerry Ross, founder.
“The combination of Day Six with our business will immediately provide room for our clients to grow their business with us” said Tod Morgan, president and CEO of C.J. Foods. “The acquisition is also expected to result in greater flexibility in scheduling and increase our capabilities as we add a nearly new facility along with a top notch team of experienced people.”
C.J. Foods, Inc. will retain all 40 Day Six employees, including the management team under Ross’ leadership.
“The integration of both companies will take place over the next 90 days and will include changing the name of the business to C.J. Foods, Inc. Our clients will continue to receive the same high quality products and services, which they have come to expect,” said Morgan.
