Real Pet Food Company was founded two generations ago as a family business manufacturing chilled dog roll products from a small site in Queensland.

Over two decades later, with the backing from one of ANZ’s leading private equity firms Quadrant Private Equity, Real Pet Food Company has grown to over eight pet food manufacturing sites across Australia and New Zealand and is making headway into global markets including the US and China.

The company produces premium dry dog and cat food from two NSW facilities at Dubbo and Inverell.

The Dubbo factory has been part of the community since 1989 and employs over 125 people, operating 24 hours over five days with three shifts per day.

The Inverell factory was acquired by the company in February 2017 and has plans to increase volume and jobs at the site. Inverell currently employs over 50 people across two shifts and operates over five days.
