LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 20, 2012) - All American Pet Company, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AAPT): CHEWIES™ are a true 25% super-premium protein treat. The semi-moist 1/4 ounce chunks are of the same formula as AAPT's recently announced in-demand NutraBar™ who's all natural formula meets all of the AAFCO dog food nutrition standards. Packaged in a one-pound canister, the basic flavors along with the quirky fun Ben & Jerry's style flavors are proving to be a hit among both the buyers and the dogs.
Dog treats continue to be the fastest growing segment of the entire pet food market. The dog treat market reached an all-time high of $2.1 billion in sales during 2010 and is expected to grow by roughly 26% through 2015. Humans are consuming nearly half of all their calories between meals and with the humanization of pets exploding sales of pet treats mirror that growing trend affirming the demand for a treat that is both healthier and richer than the popular brands of dog foods will make CHEWIES (patent pending) an absolute success.
Discussions in Kansas with co-packer's and processing machinery manufacturer's assure that AAPT will be able to produce two to three tons of CHEWIES per hour, which means that we can produce four to six thousand canisters of CHEWIES per hour. Barry Schwartz, AAPT, CEO affirmed that the company will be able to keep pace with the growing consumer demand for treats from its 45,000 -- and growing number of -- retail accounts.
"CHEWIES are the guilt free treat, so I don't have to worry about sugars, useless fillers and endless preservatives. My dogs deserve the best and CHEWIES are better than the best," said, Lisa Bershan AAPT, President.
