Introducing FirstMate, a food brand that has been tested and approved by our very own Catoro cats! Established in Chilliwack in 1989, FirstMate is a family-owned business, founded by Michael Florian. FirstMate Pet Foods manufacture a line of premium pet foods made from high-quality ingredients. The company exports premium pet food products, in both dry kibble and canned formulations, often made from local ingredients such as Pacific Ocean fish, Fraser Valley grubs and free-run Fraser Valley chickens. FirstMate products allow pet owners to maintain a limited ingredient, grain free or grain friendly diet approach for all of their pets including pets that have stomach sensitivities, allergy issues and other nutritional issues. FirstMate were pioneers in the use of fish as protein source for pets, and their canned product line includes pet foods that use human-grade, wild-caught salmon and tuna, sourced from sustainable local fisheries.
