It all began back in 1923...
When the current MD's grandfather set up an animal feed mill in Tadcaster, North Yorkshire. The company was known as Page Feeds and supplied the farming community through four feed mills that were strategically placed around Yorkshire.
We started to manufacture pet food in the 1980s. By 1990 we'd stopped producing animal feeds for farming, had changed our name to Wagg and moved to our current purpose built site at Topcliffe, near Thirsk.
During the 1990s we expanded the complete dry dog food range, moved into small animal food and doubled our capacity by expanding the original factory site.
In 2002 we opened our dog food extrusion factory and kitted it out with the latest production equipment, capable of producing in excess of 40,000 tonnes of extruded product per year. 2007 marked yet another development milestone as we doubled our pet food capacity, with a second extruder, and increased further our total blending capacity. In 2011 we added a third extruder, more robots and more packing lines. In 2012 we launched Wagg Cat.
Growth, innovation and expansion aside, Wagg is a family company with two generations in the business as well as some very long standing members of staff. Our aim is to produce the highest quality pet food products in the UK at the best possible price through constant improvement in manufacturing processes, focus on research and an innovative approach to nutrition.
Today our pet food products are stocked through a broad range of retailers in the UK, from supermarket chains to small independent pet shops, and can be found in more than 16 countries around the world.
