The "Real" Customer

Overthink Everything

More Than Stainless Steel

As more pet food and pet treat
products mirror pet owners' belief
systems, where do pet preferences
fit in?

This strategy has helped Fresno,
California-based Plato Pet Treats
achieve double-digit growth
annually since 2006, and consumers
are begging for more.

True sanitary design for processing
equipment encompasses much more
than the material used to construct it.
