Goodness in our Benefits and Rewards

We’re proud of our Brownwood team. If you join us, you’ll receive:

“The safety and wellbeing of our people is my number one priority. At Canidae, we lead with safety. When new starters arrive, they receive a safety orientation so they know how to do their job safely from day one. We’ve also invested $10 million in upgrading our equipment with additional sensors and automated safety features. There’s a safety manager on site at all times, who identifies potential hazards and instills a safety-first attitude across the business.” Read more Wally - Chief Operating Officer

“We work with heavy duty machinery, capable of doing serious harm. By going above and beyond, we make sure our people feel safe at work and go home unharmed every day. As well as upgraded machinery and an on-site safety manager, we also hold a 2-minute safety training every shift, pointing out any potential issues, from pallets being left in the wrong place to someone wearing a watch. Constant learning and improving instills a culture of safety across the business, in everything we do.”

Doing good in Brownwood

From the first truckload of food we delivered to the latest batch cooked in our Pet Nutrition plant here in Brownwood, Texas, our story is one we’re proud of. Canidae was founded 25 years ago by two pet owners who knew they could make pet food better for pets and pet parents.

We’ve been upholding that quality in Brownwood since 2012 and we’re proud that our premium kibble is produced here in the great state of Texas. Our commitment to goodness inspires everything we do, from the land we harvest and the farmers we work with, to the people we employ and the local businesses we partner with.

Here are just a few of the ways we’re giving back to our local community:
