Zukesâ„¢ and Verde PR & Consulting announce a public relations partnership effective immediately.

Progressing into their 15th year of business, Zuke's is the leader in performance-driven natural and organic pet nutrition. Specializing in innovative healthful treats and chews targeted to the unique nutritional needs of dogs and cats.

“In an effort to share our commitment to pet nutrition and the quality ingredients in our products, we are partnering with Verde PR who not only understands our dedication to our pets and the outdoors, but is able to strategically communicate our sell through support for our retailers in 2010,” said Patrick Meiering, founder of Zuke's.

Zuke's supports retailers with creative POP and merchandising, a generous sampling program, fun giveaways such as hats and tote bags, and end-cap signage and promotions. They are committed to expanding their retail support initiatives in 2010, and look forward to sharing more details on that expansion in the coming weeks.

Founded in 1995 on the simple premise that ‘we love our pets and want what's best for them,' the company has transitioned from making energy bars for dogs to offering a variety of treats and chews for both dogs and cats. Zuke's dedication to providing nutritionally rich treats and chews for our furry companions has landed them in natural grocers across the U.S., with solid positioning at outdoor retailers along with specialty pet stores.

Zuke's is determined to continue spreading the word on the importance of nutrition for animals, taking the same care in choosing foods for our best companions as we do for the rest of the family.
