If there’s a road less traveled, we’ll take it. And if there’s no road yet, we’ll build one. That’s The Merrick Way. We lead to win in Natural and Organic Pet Care, we innovate together as one, agile team and we commit to improving the lives of those we love most . . . our Pets.
Pets have always been a part of our family. Garth Merrick founded Merrick Pet Care in his family’s kitchen in Hereford, Texas, with the goal of making the most wholesome and nutritious recipes for our four-legged family members. This love for pets is what inspires our team to build on this legacy, and continue to craft the highest-quality and safest food and treats for dogs and cats.
We are passionate about being the best. We go to great lengths to craft the best food possible ”” food that our pets deserve. That’s why we’ve expanded our family of brands to include Castor & Pollux, Zuke’s and Whole Earth Farms alongside our signature Merrick brand in our premium product portfolio.
We never sacrifice quality. And, never will. We believe that recipes taste better than formulas and that's why we continue to handcraft our recipes with love in our Texas kitchen. It might take us longer to hand-stuff ingredients in some of our Merrick wet recipes, and to source USDA Organic Certified ingredients for our Castor & Pollux ORGANIX line, but that’s the Merrick Way.
We are one of the fastest growing businesses in pet specialty, and we’re thankful for the unique position we have in the category. We’re committed to staying true to our homegrown Texas roots, and humble about what we’ve accomplished. We like to think of ourselves as the craft brewery of the industry – we bring an entrepreneurial spirit and level of creativity that is rather unique to the pet food space. We know it’s the people – and their pets – behind our food that has always made us stand out; that’s why we’re focused on building talented teams that are hungry for the opportunity to improve the lives of pets, pet parents and customers.
