FirstMate Pet Foods has been in business for 30 years. They have been producing quality pet foods since the beginning. It was their intention, right from the start, to develop diets that were formulated for quality, health and safety. This is their mission statement. They have maintained a business philosophy that is fundamental to achieving this goal - pets before profits.
"...At FirstMate we live and breathe with Three principles. The First is to look after our customers. Without their loyalty and support we are nothing. We have a mission to provide the best food possible for our companion animals. It has been a long road but one we maintained over the years and will maintain going forward. The Second is to look after our suppliers. Without them we are also nothing. We have banks that work with us, we have wonderful, trusted long term suppliers that provide excellent products at fair market prices and we have the everyday suppliers of minutiae that oil the wheels of business. We have independent accountants that ensure the safety of our balance sheets and ensure strong financial health. Thirdly we have our employees. Today we have over 80 families that work with us. Without them we would truly be nothing. The men and women who work in our factories and offices and their spouses who do not, are all part of the FirstMate family and have been for many years. Period." - Mike Florian, President
