Burns Pet Nutrition has proved to be a favourite with customers and stockists alike by scooping four prestigious awards in the last four months.

In December 2014, the pet food company based in Kidwelly, Carmarthenshire, triumphed in the top three best dog food categories in the Your Dog Magazine Product Awards for 2014/15. It’s the second year running that Burns Pet Nutrition have won these awards, which are voted for by pet owning members of the public.

Burns Original, the company’s first product launched in 1993, was voted Best Dry Dog Food, Burns Weight Control+ was awarded Best Specialist Dog Food and the Burns Penlan Farm range claimed the Best Wet Dog Food honour. Two products were also highly commended – Burns Sensitive+ in the specialist food category and Burns Kelties for Best Dog Treat.

“There aren’t any complicated ingredients in Burns”, explains Nutritionist Fiona Firth. “The winning formula is just simple, natural pet food, which promotes a healthy digestive system, skin and coat as well as being extremely easy to digest.”

It’s been a great start to 2015 for the company, founded by Veterinary Surgeon John Burns, with a fourth award in March. Stockists voted Burns Pet Nutrition as ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ in Pet Product Marketing Magazine’s annual awards.

“This award represents the excellent customer service provided by our representatives and internal sales team” says Sales Manager Debbie Smith. “We really understand stockists’ requirements, help solve problems, offer product training and attend in-store open days, which hopefully really adds value to these businesses.”

The future is bright for Burns, with new products on the horizon for dogs and cats. Their Burry Port factory has recently introduced an additional shift along with new production machinery to cope with demand.

John Burns concludes: “These awards are confirmation that we are doing something right and keeping stockists and customers happy. We’re very proud of these achievements, especially since we’re up against a huge number of global brands in a highly competitive industry, and would like to thank everyone who voted for us.”
