Franklin, Tennessee -- Mars Petcare, a leader in the pet food industry, is introducing WILD FRONTIER Pet Food, a new super premium brand of dog and cat food that meets pets' instinctual needs. As carnivores at heart, our pets' ancestors relied on their instincts to find food, capturing and feeding on what nature provided. That notion is the inspiration behind the new WILD FRONTIER brand. The new line of dog and cat food includes grain-free, animal-based recipes with multiple sources of prey and nutrient-rich organs, which our pets' ancestors sought first after the hunt to help them thrive.

"We're constantly thinking about how we can reimagine our portfolio of brands and product to meet consumer demands," said Eric Huston, Marketing Director at Mars
Petcare. "Ancestral feeding continues to be a top trend in the industry, and with WILD FRONTIER Pet Food, we are taking our offerings one step further by providing a brand that has prey-based, meat-first recipes with nutrient-rich organs."

Originally part of the NUTRO brand of dog food, WILD FRONTIER Pet Food is now its own brand, providing pet parents with the next level of protein-rich ancestral nutrition. All of the recipes include high-quality protein as the first ingredient, with no grains or soy and no artificial flavors or preservatives.
