Durango, Colo. – Zuke’s® expands its line of all-natural, made in the USA pet treats with the introduction of Supers—Zuke’s first semi-moist, antioxidant and nutrient-rich superfood treats. The Supers line will present Zuke’s new packaging and will debut in retailers nationwide immediately.
Supers nourishes your dog the way nature intended by delivering a healthy mix of nutritious ingredients and antioxidants in three great tasting ‘Super-health-alicious’ flavors: Super Berries, Super Betas and Super Greens. From antioxidant-rich berries to robust beta-carotenes and wholesome veggies, each flavor represents a different class of the most powerful superfoods.
Superfoods, rich in essential nutrients and anti-oxidants, are key to the Supers line as they are important for long-term canine health, just as they are for human health and immunity. Just like human cells, canine cells produce damaging free radicals as a by-product of oxygen use. Dietary antioxidants found in several superfoods combat free radicals, helping to protect against heart disease, cancer, eye problems and other serious health complications.
“Superfoods pack a lot of punch,” says Zuke’s Founder, Patrick Meiering. “They are loaded with beneficial nutrients proven to prevent diseases and support longevity. Our Supers line reflects the latest in animal nutrition and supports our overall commitment to producing the most delicious and healthy treats for your pets.”
Free of corn, wheat or soy (like all other Zuke’s products), Supers also boast low gluten content for gluten-sensitive dogs. This ultra healthy treat depicts the new Supers packaging, which shows “Soaring Zuke” playing ball near Mt. Rainer and Lake Washington outside of Seattle. All of Zuke’s new packaging illustrates the company’s namesake, Zuke the Chocolate Lab, actively playing in a different dog-friendly outdoor destination across the nation.
“Zuke’s new packaging purely encapsulates our company’s culture inspired by Zuke, as well as our commitment to leading a healthy and active lifestyle with pets,” said Meiering. “As we embark on our 17th anniversary in 2012 here at Zuke’s, we are proud to remain so connected to our roots and share this passion with our customers.”
Zuke’s™ encourages all pet owners to lead a healthy, active and devoted life with their pets. In support of this mission, a portion of every Zuke’s sale goes to The Dog and Cat Cancer Fund™.
Available in six-ounce pouches this spring, Supers will bring lively colors to Zuke’s new merchandising presentation, and retail for $6.99. For more information about Zuke’s please visit, http://www.zukes.com.
