PHOENIX, AZ–(Marketwire – Aug 21, 2012) – For The Earth Corporation (PINKSHEETS: FTEG), a maker and marketer of green products providing effective and sustainable solutions, announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Prestige Pet Products, a 20-year-old maker and distributor of pet products.
“When you look at the innovations that Prestige Pet Products has brought to the consumer, you realize the tremendous value this represents and a market that is actively searching for products that are safe and reliable,” said Nelson Grist, President and CEO of For The Earth Corporation. “A testament to this is the fact Prestige Pet Products has never been involved in any type of recall. This, among many other reasons, is why we are eager and excited to have the people and the products of Prestige Pet join our team.”
Prestige Pet has a patented smoking process, for example, which gives their pork hide chews a much higher palpability than other chews on the market. These chews have been wildly popular at Costco in the past and continue to be sought after by pet lovers who have tried them for their dogs.
For The Earth Corporation is the parent company under which Prestige Pet Products will continue to operate. Adding to the treats and chews for which Prestige Pet is most famous, there will be pet feeders called Dream o’ Bowls; PaPurr cat litter made from recycled paper; Litter To Go, an eco-friendly pet travel solution; What Odor? spray; What Stain? spray; and many other product lines that will reflect the sense of entrepreneurship and innovation with which Prestige Pet began over twenty years ago.

In the United States alone, consumers spent over $50 billion in 2011 on pet products and are expected to spend almost $53 billion this year, as reported by American Pet Products Association.
