Jay P. Margedant, President of Flint River Ranch, has the following message to share with Flint River Ranch customers and distributors:
As the end of the year is fast approaching, we would like to take a moment and express our sincere thanks to everyone who honored us with your business, continued loyalty and fellowship. We know that this has been a trying year with the economic conditions that continue to be a part of all of our lives, but we are pleased to say that Flint River Ranch has come through strong and more directed towards our future.
While we did not have any major impacts this year, we did make a significant improvement with moving of our offices into a new address. We are just around the corner from the old address, but it’s a whole new environment and one in which we will better able to deal with “the work that is the back office” to Flint River Ranch. We still have some unpacking and improvements to finish, but we are getting settled down and I do not think that anyone was impacted by our transition. The new official Flint River Ranch site address for all correspondence is:
Flint River Ranch
245 Hembree Park Dr, Ste 110
Roswell, GA 30076
None of our phone numbers, fax, or email addresses have changed.
Our New “Signature Brand” Line of Dog Food Formulas
Another important announcement is that during the 1st Quarter of 2010 we will be releasing our newest formula! We are building on the foundation that the Trout and Potato dog food formula initiated by utilizing most of its formula as the core of our new “Signature Brand” line of dog foods.
Our second release will be Duck and Potato. We have plans for a complete line of separate formulas under this line — all with their core ingredients being very similar, therefore greatly easing the transitional periods that some folks run into. We have always advocated a “mix of different proteins” within a pet’s diet, as it better enables our pets to garner different nutritional aspects from these variations. We look to do the same with our “Signature Brand” line of formulas, but with the proteins being more concentrated and savory in their own unique formula.
Our intention is to have a formula line that will present the various proteins of Fish, Duck, Chicken, Beef, Lamb and perhaps Venison as the key ingredients in separate formulas with a variety of complementary fats. We already know — as do most of you — that the “Fish and Chips” diet is a fantastic formula and has generally met with no adverse issues for those dogs who are thriving on it. We believe that everyone will find a favorite as the new formulas are released and also be comforted that if you need or want to offer some more variety, you won’t have to move to a totally different formula. You’ll still have the majority of the formula as a base to greatly eliminate transitional issues.
We will still continue to carry and support all other lines but we’ll be looking to be able to meet more of the public need for a true “rotational diet” and also continue to satisfy those looking for more of a “reduced or grain-free” dog food diet that the Signature Brand line provides. There will be no wheat, rice, corn, or soybeans in any of these formulas and we will have an emphasis on more unique ingredients as we go along.
We’ll be utilizing oats, potatoes (sweet and white), and more fruits and vegetables than we have traditionally used within this new line. We know that these new formulas will find their niche just as the Fish & Chips formula did so many years ago. As with previous formulas, all new products will continue to be oven-baked and in the nugget shape. We’ll be making a further announcement with the final ingredient list once we go into production. We are also doing our best to get the pricing to be as complementary to each formula as we can.
Thank you all again for a wonderful year and we look forward to 2010 and the renewed vigor that the New Year always brings. Happy Holidays and have a very happy and safe New Year!
Jay P. Margedant
