Pet industry sources say that WellPet LLC, based in Tewksbury, Mass., and owned by Berwind Corp., a Philadelphia-based family-owned investment management company, has acquired Minneapolis-based Sojos, maker of freeze-dried and raw pet food.
“Sojos will continue to be based in Minneapolis. There will be no changes to the day-to-day operations of either company. Ward and Maggie Johnson [co-owners] will continue to help with the transition. Distributor and retail customers of Sojos will continue with ‘business as usual’ with the Sojos team,” according to one distributor report.
