Project Progress: North Freeze Dry

June 17, 2022

A previous customer of ours, Barrett Petfoods, partnered with Anchor Ingredients Co. LLC to form North Freeze Dry company, and we are building their new facility in Little Falls, Minnesota. This pre-engineered metal building by Nucor Building Systems is one you cannot miss. It clocks in at over 87,000 sq. ft. and is built to last with 8′ omniblock and insulated metal panels creating the exterior.

North Freeze Dry is a business with a revolutionary concept. We took the following explanation from their website: “North Freeze Dry is a U.S.-based co-manufacturer that produces premium freeze-dried pet food and treats for today’s top brands. The company’s freeze-drying facility in Little Falls, MN is one of the industry’s largest, most advanced, and fully integrated freeze-drying manufacturing facilities.”

“North Freeze Dry is a joint venture between Anchor Ingredients Co., LLC, a leading supplier of premium ingredients and value-added processing for the pet food industry, and Barrett Petfood Innovations, a rapidly expanding co-manufacturer of premium pet foods. Together, Anchor Ingredients and Barrett Petfood Innovations are bringing their common vision of premium ingredients, unparalleled customer service and exceptional quality control and food safety standards to the North Freeze Dry brand.”
