Champion food made promise after promise to independent retailers to carry and promote their food. The promise was not to sell to large franchises.
During 2012 the company had great difficulties producing enough dog/cat food for the retailers demands. This continued for throughout the year and straight into the better half of 2013.
In the summer Champion decided to go back on their word and sellout by signing up with Pet Valu.
Independent retailers were confused due to the fact that the company could not keep up with the demand already as it is.
One month later Champion demanded their supplier to increase to minimum quantity for ordering Orijen and Acana. They increased it more than 2.5times the amount it.
Obviously this was a scheme to drive out the independent store owners to be able to provide to Pet Valu. Many stores went out of business after marketing their product for years only to lose their customer base to Pet Valu.
Champion pet food has insisted of bankrupting hundreds of Canadian business owners in 2013.
Stay care away from the company.
