Premium pet food manufacturer and distributor Barrett Petfood Innovations (BPI) plans to open a new facility in Little Falls, MN, according to a recent release issued by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED). 

“Barrett Petfood Innovations is a rapidly growing company in central Minnesota with customers located around the world,” Gov. Tim Walz said in a statement. “I congratulate Little Falls and Barrett Petfood Innovations on this new expansion.”

Based in Brainerd, MN, BPI produces more than 150 varieties of premium pet food, which the firm distributes in the U.S. and internationally.

DEED provided the company with investments of $450,000 from the Minnesota Investment Fund and $175,000 from the state’s Job Creation Fund to support the project. The company is expected to create 85 new jobs over the next three years.
