OMAHA, Neb. — Omaha Steaks, retailer of steaks, seafood and food gifts for humans, now offers a new line of premium dog treats. The fifth generation, family-owned company cites the nearly 78 million US dog-owning households and the increasing demand for dog treats. Market research firm, Packaged Facts, reports the sale of pet treats and chews topped $6 billion in sales in 2017.
“We understand that Americans love their dogs and consider them family. That is why we wanted to offer a line of premium ingredient dog treats that our customers could trust,” said Todd Simon, senior vice president and family owner. “For generations, Omaha Steaks has been bringing families together around the dinner table and we are sure that many dogs have enjoyed bites of filet mignon slipped to them under the table. Now we are offering something made exclusively for the family dogs we know and love.”
Omaha Steaks’ new line of dog treats are made in the US using all-natural ingredients with no additives or preservatives. The new line includes smoked jerky dog treats in three varieties, beef dog biscuits, smoked pig ears and beef bone chews. The company also offers dried steak treats for both cats and dogs.
