About Red Collar Pet Foods, Inc.
For over 19 years, Hampshire Pet Products in Joplin, MO has been providing the best baked products to the pet food industry, along with cutting-edge and innovative ideas. Recently we have obtained new ownership, Red Collar Pet Foods, Inc., and now have five sister plants with our home office located in Franklin, Tennessee. We continue to support our three-prong approach to achieve our strategic plan – an unparalleled commitment to food safety, quality and innovation.
Our 200,000-sq.-ft. facility has three production lines and seven packaging lines, and we currently employ approximately 225 associates. Our production department is divided into two main segments: processing (mixing, forming and baking), and packaging (packaging and assembling products for shipment). These two areas are supported and enhanced by our quality, sanitation, maintenance, engineering and warehousing personnel.
We also have our own on-site quality lab, where our technicians are responsible for over 30 quality checks throughout our production flow, along with the testing they administer on incoming ingredients and finished goods.
