Working At Elmira Pet

Elmira Pet Products is a special place to work. Located in the township of Elmira on the Kissing Bridge Trail just north of Waterloo, the company is always looking for hard-working people to join our growing team.

ELMIRA PET PRODUCTS IS A FAMILY

Employees from all areas of the company work together to contribute towards meeting our common goal of producing the highest quality pet food in the industry. We are proud of our strong work ethic and “small town” values, including honesty, integrity, and respect. We are proudly Canadian-owned and operated.

At Elmira Pet Products, the experience of our many long-tenured employees can be seen in the quality and complexity of our work. We combine the knowledge and talents of our seasoned employees, with the fresh ideas from newer employees, as we continually seek out opportunities to connect innovation, quality, and value with our pet food. With over 250 employees in a non-unionized environment, our workforce, knowledge, and expertise continue to grow.

WORKING AT ELMIRA PET PRODUCTS

“Our goal is simple – to be the leading manufacturer of pet food products in Canada,” says President and CEO Bryan Cook. “At Elmira Pet Products, we pursue that goal by investing in both our employees and our infrastructure.

“Our dedicated employees give us a key advantage in the industry. They care deeply about the success of our company, customers, and most importantly, the well-being of the beautiful pets that we feed.”
The primary service at Elmira Pet Products is the conversion of ingredients to create our finished pet food, but there are many steps along the way before a quality product hits the shelf. From procurement through to the warehouse and ultimately food into your pet’s bowl, the employees who maintain our operations are the heartbeat of the company.

“The pet specialty production channel is another one of Elmira Pet Products’ distinct advantages,” says Mr. Cook. “We offer an easy solution to our customers, giving each of them something unique to their product line to ensure success. Our team plays an important role in achieving that.”
