Attorney Brett Reynolds joins Champion Petfoods USA board
by Mandy Hicks
Champion Petfoods is a Canadian company that is building a new kitchen in Auburn, Kentucky, its third kitchen and first in the U.S. Champion Petfoods prepares Biologically Appropriate and Fresh Regional Ingredient dog and cat foods, and the Kentucky location will help it meet its growing demand in the pet specialty market in the U.S. Champion Petfoods will exclusively make the award-winning ACANA and ORIJEN brands, and the new Kentucky location will allow it to prepare a unique variety of innovative foods reflecting the Kentucky region. The new operation will officially open in May 2016 and is expected to bring nearly 150 jobs to Logan County and further purchase the majority of its ingredients from local farmers and suppliers.
Brett, a partner at ELPO, works extensively in business law. He practices primarily in real estate, both commercial and residential, banking, corporate and transactional law, as well as in the area of immigration law.
