May 11, 2020

April 28, 2020 (New York, NY)—Bonnier Corp. continues to expand its Outdoor Life licensing program and has partnered with Tidy Dog Pet Products, a leading pet product manufacturer, to produce all-natural jerky dog treats, Elise Contarsy, senior vice president, Bonnier Consumer Products, announced today. The Knoxville, TN-based company will produce “Outdoor Life Tennessee[1]  Pork Dog Jerky,” high-quality treats composed of pure pork shoulder, limited ingredients, and no preservatives.

“There is tremendous opportunity for the Outdoor Life brand in the Pet Products category.  Dogs have been long trusted outdoor companions for a wide range of outdoor activities, and we are excited to begin this expansion into pet nutrition with Tidy Dog.” Contarsy said. “Tidy Dog is a growing, innovative company while Outdoor Life is an iconic brand with a high level of consumer recognition and trust for pet owners and aspiring pet owners. This is a natural extension of the brand and a perfect fit for both parties.”

“We’re proud to partner with Outdoor Life as their first licensee in the pet industry,” David Price, CEO of Tidy Dog Pet Products said. “We immediately saw the potential of this historic brand in the pet space, and are excited and eager to grow our footprint together.”

Tidy Dog will begin distribution of Outdoor Life Tennessee Pork Dog Jerky in the third quarter of 2020. The product will be available online, in Mass and Specialty Pet Retailers, and in Veterinary clinics.
