Values of Pitou Minou & Compagnons

 

Pitou Minou & Compagnons the pet food store that every pet food store compares to. We are a division of Global Pet Foods which is the largest Canadian owned pet food retailer in the country. Our objective is to offer the very best food for your beloved pets. We only recommend food that use natural ingredients.

Product quality

We carefully look into the composition of all foods we carry to ensure that only high-quality natural ingredients were used. We will not recommend nor sell any food that doesn’t fit our criteria of quality. Our recommended products are made with high quality ingredients that ensure proper and complete nutrition.

Expertise in nutrition

Similar to humans, your pets can have conditions that demand special attention. Whatever the issue that your pet may face, we have expert advise in pet nutrition to help find the product that is best suited to meet its needs. We know our products very well and are qualified to recommend the ones your pet needs.

Emphasis on ingredients, not brands

We do not pick the products we carry based on the popularity of the brand but rather on the ingredients they use. A large percentage of the brands we carry are Canadian made, which offers a great degree of confidence given the Canadian standards of the pet food industry. We do not sell any edible products that are made in China or other countries that cannot certify the quality of the ingredients used in the making of the food products.

Quebec, a huge potential marketplace

The Pitou Minou & Compagnons brand was developed in Quebec in 2005 by Richard Begin, who owns 5 stores of his own. Wanting to have access to natural holistic food for his personal pets is what motivated him to develop the Global Pet Foods chain, called Pitou Minou & Compagnons here in Quebec since very little was being offered in the then current independent pet food retailers. The chain’s mid-long term objective is to have 75 stores in operation in Quebec, this spread across the territory.

” We decided to become a Pitou Minou & Compagnons franchisee 5 years ago. After realizing the huge advantage Pitou Minou & Compagnons had over all competitors in the marketplace and understanding the net difference their buying can make on my bottom line and the flexibility offered to their franchisees, the decision was easy to make. They offered all the support I needed to build my customer base and have a support staff that is very helpful in any way I need. I also feel very confident knowing that I am part of a 200 store chain in Canada that has grown over the past 45 years of business.
