Freeze-Dried Proteins 

Introducing Petsource by Scoular, the new name of our new freeze-dried pet food ingredient manufacturing subsidiary.  Petsource will develop, procure, freeze-dry and package high-protein ingredients for pet food manufacturers. It is among the first in the country to bring these steps together under one roof, positioning itself as the go-to source for pet food companies.  

We have always been dedicated to pet food ingredient innovation. We are proud to announce that an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of The Scoular Company intends to build and operate a manufacturing facility that produces freeze-dried protein ingredients for the pet food industry. This approximately $50-million investment located in the city of Seward, Nebraska, is expected to create nearly 100 new jobs.

As the pet food industry has grown and expanded, so too has the need for quality ingredients. This facility will produce high-quality and safe products for our pet food customers, making it easier for them to meet the fast-growing demand for freeze-dried pet food ingredients. The freeze-dried, minimally processed pet food ingredients are designed to deliver high levels of protein while utilizing minimal ingredients and a small format, making them an ideal choice for pet food manufacturers.

The Scoular Promise to the Pet Food Industry & the Community

For more than 127 years, Scoular has invested in the people and communities of Nebraska. The new business looks forward to working with the local Seward community to fill roles at this new facility. As future job openings become available, more information will be posted to this web page.

Scoular executives, along with state and civic leaders, celebrated the groundbreaking of the company's new freeze-dried manufacturing facility in Seward, Neb., on August 6, 2019.
