We are proud to be an independent, family-run, completely Canadian pet care company. Our values are rooted in hard work, innovation, and above all, a love of pets.
In 1955, Rolf C. Hagen, an immigrant to Canada, started out as a one-man business importing pet care products from Europe. Since then, with the help of brothers Dieter Hagen and Horst Hagen, and now sons Mark Hagen, Tom Hagen and Rolf Hagen Jr., the Hagen group of companies has grown into one of the world’s most respected manufacturers and distributors of pet food and supplies.
Hagen introduced Nutrience pet foods in 1988, in response to an overwhelming demand for good, honest pet nutrition. We are proud to offer a complete range of healthy, tasty pet food at a great price.
Quality has always been our top priority. Nutrience foods are manufactured by Hagen Pet Foods Inc. in Waverly, New York, using all the ingredients you want and none you don’t. Our state-of-the-art facility is certified Human Grade, so there is nothing in Nutrience food that you couldn’t safely consume yourself.
The deep love of animals that inspired Rolf C. Hagen to start his pet supply business in 1955 is still our inspiration today. We know you love your pets, and see them as part of your family. We see them as part of our family, too.
Hagen remains a family-run, privately owned company dedicated to maintaining close relationships with independent pet retailers and listening to the needs of our customers. In addition to Nutrience, Hagen manufactures a wide range of dog and cat items, as well as pet care products for birds, fish, reptiles and small mammals.
