Pet Carousel, a Sanger-based maker of pet treats and chews, has been purchased by Cargill, a global producer and food marketer.
The deal is expected to close on or about Feb. 28. Terms of the sale were not disclosed.
Pet Carousel is a maker of all-natural pet products made from raw materials in the U.S. and will benefit from Cargill's nationwide distribution capabilities and raw material supplies from its beef, pork and turkey processing facilities, the company said.
"I am extremely excited to join forces with Cargill in a venture devoted to meeting consumer needs, while also allowing us to showcase our natural pet products to more customers," said Troy Becker, president of Pet Carousel, who will join Cargill and work from the Sanger facility.
Pet Carousel's 36,000-square-foot facility in Sanger, employing 25 full-time employees, will continue to produce the company's line of pet treats and chews with increased investment for innovation and new products.
