UK pet food company receives grant

A business Enterprise Award from the Home-Grown Cereals Authority (HGCA) is set to help a UK rabbit, guinea pig and hamster foods manufacturer expand into the European market.

The My Pet Foods range of steam-flaked pet food products was granted £20,000, to help develop sales and identify new distribution channels. The HGCA advises other companies that they still have time to apply for funding - of up to £50,000 - during the latest round of awards which is open until 9th July.

The HGCA Enterprise Awards are designed to promote new, innovative uses of UK grain. It is estimated that the My Pet Foods project will generate additional grain usage of 900 tonnes.

My Pet Foods is the pet food business arm of Kent based Grain Harvesters Ltd. My Pet Foods and Grain Harvesters purchase £14 million worth of locally produced grains annually.
