EASTON, PA: Phillips Pet Food & Supplies, a leading pet product distributor serving the independent pet channel is partnering with Versele-Laga to distribute Higgins Premium Pet Foods out of its Texas distribution center.

Higgins Premium Pet Foods and its parent company Versele-Laga are committed to providing companion birds and small animals with the highest quality, natural foods and treats made without the use of artificial ingredients. Their colors are sourced from nature and do not include chemical additives. The complete health and well-being of pets is at the core of what they do. Their mission is to develop and nurture relationships with pet parents that are built on trust. This trust is reliant on Higgins keeping their pets’ nutrition free of unnecessary, artificial ingredients and supporting the pets’ wellness in many ways including:

  • Seeds and grains are quadruple air-washed to protect the delicate avian respiratory systems from excess dust and fines.
  • Protected probiotics are added to support immunity and promote gut health.
  • The Versele-Laga diets for herbivores are non-GMO and are made via an extrusion cooking process instead of pressed pellets for higher palatability and nutrient bioavailability.
  • The Versele-Laga diets for omnivores contain animal proteins to offer variety and stay true to their dietary protocol.
