Natures Menu is celebrating its 40th anniversary this month. Founded in 1981 as Anglian Meat Products, the business began producing Biologically Appropriate Raw Foods for pets as a small family run business in Norfolk.
Chairman Craig Taylor joined the family business at just 16 years old, and in 2012, at the height of the banking disaster, he borrowed £8.5 million to lead a management buyout and has since grown the company five times over.
Fast forward to 2021, and Natures Menu is a leading player in raw and natural dog and cat food and produces an estimated 20,000 tonnes of raw and natural pet food a year, supplying to 3,500 shops across the UK.
James Langan, managing director of Natures Menu, said: “We’re delighted to be celebrating an incredible 40 years in operation. We share our success with our loyal customers and retailers, and I feel very proud of the company’s continued passion to deliver high quality pet food to four-legged family members across the country for four decades.
“Our 40th year will be an exciting one, with plenty of new product development in the pipeline for both dog and cat, as well as new plans to continue developing our sustainability as a business.”
