Project Description

Raw Materials Handling Automation

The story of Real Pet Food Company starts in 1994 when Tony and Christina Quinn set up a small chilled dog roll facility in Burleigh, QLD under the name V.I.P Petfoods. From this small factory the business quickly grew, and in 2002 moved into the larger and current home of Chilled & Fresh Pet Food at Yatala, QLD.
