Our Passion is Pets

Building Your Brands with Excellence. Guaranteed!

Targeted Pet Treats (TPT) has become known in the industry as one of the leading innovators in injection molding of food technology. Together with its trading partners, the company has had a hand in creating many of the most successful and pioneering products in the industry. It doesn’t end there, TPT is known for its best in class food safety program and superb customer service. TPT is your source for global branded projects as we boast certifications for all major markets across the planet.

TPT was created in November 2000 as a joint venture between Ainsworth Pet Nutrition (APN) and Moldsmiths. It was the perfect partnership with APN bringing their 67 years of passion for pet nutrition, and Moldsmiths contributing a venerable track record in excellence in injection molding manufacturing along with their proprietary injection molding of food trade secrets.

During the first five years TPT had no employees, sourcing all labor through Moldsmiths and being guided through the pet category with APN’s expertise. In July 2005, TPT hired their first associate. Fast forward twelve years, TPT is a fully staffed autonomous juggernaut with a team of 250. Our investment hasn’t stopped with talent as we have invested $7MM in capital equipment in the past year to expand our capacity and capability.

Recently, TPT has expanded its portfolio by reintroducing plastics injection molding technology. Interweaving this expertise into our core business we have created exciting and novel toy+treat combinations. Simultaneously, we have expanded our array of value added services and portfolio of packaging capabilities, while adding hi-tech robotics to increase capacity and efficiency.

TPT is committed to its vision of Enhancing the Lives of Pets Every Day. Bring your passion, talent, and brand equity and we will incorporate that powerful combination with our unique proprietary process, talent, and passion to create winning solutions. We have a strong hunger for more and will take on new projects with the same vigor first time, every time.

With an annual capacity of over 400 million units, we have ample availability for your project. We believe relationships start and end with trust, and are grateful that our portfolio of customers have placed their trust in our ability to Build Their Brands with Excellence.
