Growth fuels creation of Gold Line Feeds


Gold Line Feeds — a new business within the animal feed manufacturing sector — has launched following a restructure of operations by Dodson & Horrell Ltd.

Gold Line Feeds will be dedicated to serving the canine and small animal market, and will continue to offer Autarky, Chudleys, Gusto, and Trophy Pet Foods, along with servicing customers with their private label offering. 

The business has sales in excess of £22m in the last year and has plans for growth within the sector and to extend upon an 80-year pedigree of manufacturing high-quality animal feeds from their Northamptonshire mill.

Gold Line Feeds is built from strong foundations, growing by 20 per cent in the last three years, and now produces over 2million bags of dog food and over 150,000 bags of rabbit food.  

Richard Anderson, managing director, said: “This major strategic step for the business will allow us to invest in our manufacturing facilities and improve operational efficiencies to stay at the forefront of the industry. It will also give us the scope to innovate in the category to make the best possible product for the animals who consume our feeds.”
