About Us

In 1947, Harold Taylor started Breeder’s Choice Pet Food company with a simple goal: the uncompromising pursuit of the healthiest nourishment for the pets we love. That commitment endures today in the high-quality formulas we make in our state-of-the-art facility in California. We provide our customers with flexible manufacturing, superior natural ingredients like fresh meat purees, and a range of packaging options.
Whether shipping to the U.S. or for export to Asia, these are the reasons some customers have been with us for over a decade. This is the Breeder’s Choice Difference.

Safety

Our first priority is safety for our products, our people, and pets. In addition to our food safety and quality programs, Breeder’s Choice is highly focused on our employee’s safety. To achieve this, we train on more than 50 different topics ranging from Lock Out Tag Out (LOTO) to ergonomics. We focus on Behavior Based Safety to realize our safety goals. Our program “CORE” allows employees to achieve safety excellence in all that they do through coaching of team members, ownership of our results, and recognition of our success. We have 16 trained emergency responders that are trained in First Aid, CPR, and AED application. Having this safety mindset allows us to not only work safe but also allows us to perform more efficiently.
