As of 2009-03-01:
Eagle Pack states on their web site that they make their own *dry* food in a plant that is family owned and have been doing that for almost 40 years. The plant is located in Mishawaka, Indiana.
They state that their supplements and ingredients are each obtained from sources that have proven they can be trusted for years. They state that *most* of the wet foods in the Pet Food Industry are contracted out (outsourced) and theirs are also. They state that the food formulas, are made according to their specifications and the ingredients are the same quality level as in their dry foods.
They say the plant is USDA/APHIS inspected and their product goes a step further by being EU Certified. I was confused as to which plant they are speaking of……their own, where they produce the dry food, or the one where the wet food is produced!

Subject: 2009-01-14- WELLPET is now establised
I was told that Berwind is a very “hands off” company, and things have definitely gone ok with EP in the last year and with Wellness since last August, so I don’t expect any negative changes to any of the products, but of course it’s always good to keep an eye open and be aware of what’s going on.
Here’s the official press release:
Tewksbury, MA (January 14, 2009) -The Wellness®, Old Mother Hubbard®, Eagle Pack® and Holistic Select® brands of natural food, treats and supplements for pets are now members of one family, WellPet.
