Fidelis Biscuit Co. is Maine's best pet product, says Downeast Dog News
Rockland, ME, April 25, 2013 - It's official! Fidelis Biscuit Co. has been selected as the Best Maine Made Pet Product, according to results announced today by Downeast Dog News 2013 Readers Poll. This is the first year Fidelis Biscuit Co., created in 2011, has won the prestigious award.
The idea to create a “green” treat, made with Maine-sourced, organic ingredients and packaged in a reusable treat tin came from April Thibodeau. In June of 2011, Thibodeau approached Loyal Biscuit Co. owner Heidi Neal and the two partnered to create Fidelis Biscuit Co. Fidelis means Loyal in Latin.
After a decade long career as a scientist in Greater Boston, April decided to return to the state of Maine and pursue her true passion...dogs! Dissatisfied with most of the existing dog treat options, she started experimenting with making her own healthy dog treats at home, and soon the Fidelis Biscuit Co was born. "Baking is chemistry" says April, and making the transition from science to dog treats was as organic and natural as Fidelis Biscuit treats. She is thrilled to be partnered with Heidi Neal, the driving force behind midcoast Maine's premier dog store, the Loyal Biscuit Co.
Fidelis Biscuit Co. is an all-natural, organic dog treat line, hand crafted and baked in Rockland, Maine. Ingredients are not only organic, but Maine-sourced whenever possible and sealed in biodegradable/compostable packaging. The treats can be purchased in a reusable and food-safe treat tin and then refilled with treats only packaged in the biodegradable bags. Currently, ingredients sourced from Maine are organic wild Maine blueberries from Burke Hill Farm, organic canola oil from Morrill Natural Oils, organic rice and oat flours from Fiddlers Green Farm, and various ingredients from the Belfast Coop.
The Fidelis line includes original anise recipe, peanut butter, and Maine blueberry flavors. In March of 2013, Fidelis also launched their bakery treat line, offering frosted dog cookies using their original recipe flavor. Available only in the three Loyal Biscuit Co. locations, there are bones, cupcakes, lobsters, tennis balls and other fun designs to choose from.
Through its association with Loyal Biscuit Co., Fidelis Biscuit Co. is a great supporter of local rescue organizations and non-profits that better the lives of pets. Currently, you can find Fidelis Biscuit Co. tins and treats in many Maine locations, as well as several locations through the US.
