Blue Buffalo Bought By General Mills


It was bound to happen, another big conglomerate got into the pet food game. This time it's General Mills buying Blue Buffalo for approximately US$8 billion, or US$40 per share in cash.

I have never been a Blue Buffalo fan. They've been riddled with recalls for years and I still remember when they told all those mom and pop stores (who really built this food for them), they would always stay with them and not go into big box stores. Sure enough, they entered the market with PetsMart and PetCo and of course Chewy. Chewy is now owned by PetsMart...another sell out. On top of everything, Blue Buffalo recently announced they'd sell their lower foods in Walmart as a gateway to have people buy their foods and upgrade to their other foods. Blue Buffalo also just got out of a battle with Purina. 

Here's a sampling of Blue Buffalo in the news -February 28, 2017, February 13, 2017May 31, 2016, November 25, 2015November 8, 2015October 8, 2010

If you're tired of all these conglomerates gobbling up pet foods, come on over and try a real company that cares! Seriously, this company has been serving the pet community since 1999 and has NEVER had a recall...EVER! On top of it, the co-founders made it an employee owned company. They did this so that some PetSmart or worse would never have control of a company that people worked their hearts and souls to build. How's that for cool?!? Wondering who this amazing company is? Click here and purchase truly the best for your dog or cat. You won't be sorry, I can guarantee that. We started offering these products in 2003 when we owned our pet sitting business and they are amazing. A truly genuine company who cares deeply for our pets...not just the almighty dollar.


Enjoy your day!
