Graham Wheeler, managing director of The Real Pet Food Company, has joined the main board of Inspired Pet Nutrition – the UK’s largest independent producer of dry pet food with major brands such as Wagg and Harringtons.

Graham founded TRPC in North Wales in 1999 and, a spokesman says, has been instrumental in helping IPN’s treat business develop into ‘one of the best, most innovative manufacturers of oven baked, semi-moist treats in Europe’. More recently, he has overseen the move of the business from Flint to Kinmel Park, while supporting the launch of the new Nineteen 87 Baked complete range of dog food.

Graham will be director of product, process and innovation across the group and is welcomed by the board at a time of rapid growth and expansion through investment in manufacturing capabilities and people.

He said: “The successful implementation of the Kinmel Bakery has been a long-held dream, which I have been very proud to achieve, made more exciting by the launch of the new Nineteen87 baked complete range. I’m looking forward to developing many more equally exciting and innovative snacks, treats and completes in my new role helping to make Kinmel Park the benchmark for baked pet food excellence.”
