Forthglade supply issues
« on: Mar 09, 2018, 23:31 »
Hope just been to Crufts and Forthglafe have zero wet food on their stand. They can only offer 1kg cold pressed Jonkers food on their stand. They blame the bad weather in Devon!!!!!!!!!
This looks bad to me and are they in trouble ????

Yes there has been absolutely awful weather in the southwest of the UK recently with snow affecting a great many deliveries including human food staples of bread and milk; and of course food for animals too.

 How the farmers have managed to feed their animals is a feat to be admired! And one can only stand back in awe of folk in other countries who continue to thrive throughout whilst experiencing continuing weather issues.

To be honest Meg, not a good answer as Zooplus and other Forthglade dealers have been continually out of stock for many weeks.  Surely a couple of days of snow in Devon should not bring this sort of issue to them! Me thinks they have real problems.

Yes it's as well to be aware that observations vary (at times considerably!) amongst folks regarding everything.....including availability of food stock.

Without an indepth knowledge of how a company is thriving I'm cautious regarding interpretation, which may, perhaps positively, or negatively, influence others. The internet is a portal of considerable influence as demonstrated in the use of personal social media recently. That said there is factual information available (and in the public domain) should anyone wish to further read about any company.

I apologise in advance if my post sounds rather trite...as that is not my intention. Rather, in this instance I'm acknowledging the recent weather conditions affecting availability of food stocks for other manufacturers of both human and animal food stocks.

* I have split this these posts from the Cold pressed foods thread as they are about a separate, and different issue.

My dogs are currently having some Forthglade wet as part of their diet. I ordered some a month or so ago and noticed 'out of stock' on one or two lines but that was all. This morning our Morrisons was well stocked and in fact have increased their range to include one (or maybe more) of the with brown rice variety, including chicken and tripe. They also have the new Sea Bass, Sweet Potato and Vegetables which I am glad to see because that range lacked fish. One of my dogs is not so good with white potato so I welcome the use of this alternative. They are currently on offer at Morrisons at £3.50p for three trays (normal price is £1.30p per tray).

I have been amazed at the rapid growth of this company and to get into major supermarkets is some achievement.  I wasn't surprised to read that they have either moved to larger premises or added to their existing one/s (can't remember which).  Maybe they are still  sorting things out at the new premises and working hard to catch up and meet the demand.  They have also been busy introducing new ranges of complete food and treats.  I am just a customer but IMHO their growth/expansion seems to indicate a true success story.  It's nice to see a small UK company producing quality food for our pets.

Like you Dottie I too am a customer, having no affiliation with the company. With canine hungry mouths to feed, and to maintain the health of dogs, I like to keep abreast of developments in dog food, and that is another invaluable reason to 'dip a toe' into the allaboutdogfood website, as time allows!  ;)

According to their website About our history they are moving into new, purpose built premises this year. It will doubtless be a busy time for their staff.

I'm in Plymouth, the recent snow caused real problems down this way... probs because we are not used of it! I didn't drive to work for 2 days, busses were off the road and people were being advised to stay at home.
Forthglade is in Winkleigh, North Devon. In some of the villages around there folks couldnt get in or out because of snow drifts, I know this because several people didn't get into work for a few days.
This would have had an impact on their fresh production/deliveries for a few days... but I cant comment on cold pressed. Maybe it is packed in Winkleigh? (hmm could be).

doggiefan100, Interesting that there has been a shortage for a while, could it be that the cold pressed is a new product and they have been overwhelmed with orders?
