Natural Product Laboratories New Customer to Market its Natural Dog Shampoo to Several High End Retail Establishments
ORLANDO, Fla., May 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Union Equity, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: UNQT) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Natural Product Laboratories LLC, has a new customer; Doolittle & pup™. Natural Product Laboratories is producing an initial order of 500 pieces of Doolittle & pup's natural dog shampoo product. Doolittle & pup™ will be marketing its new natural dog shampoo to high end pet retail establishments throughout the United States.
According to the American Pet Product Association (APPA), Americans spent approximately $47.7 billion on pet products and services in 2010, an increase of 4.8% over 2009. Since 1988, pet ownership has expanded from 56% of households to 62%. That is approximately 71.4 million homes and approximately 46% of all households own more than one pet; according to www.franchisehelp.com.
The pet industry in the United States and many other countries is booming. Americans, for example, own more pets than ever before. Growth in the sector is derived both from increasing pet ownership as well as from increased spending per pet. Pet pampering is becoming the norm, as pet owner spending has moved far beyond simple food and grooming expenses to include innovative and specialized premium products. The bottom line: people increasingly view their pets as part of the family and are willing to spend even during difficult economic times, according to www.franchisehelp.com.
"Natural Product Laboratories has done a great job developing our revolutionary product for us," stated Mariah Doolittle owner of Doolittle & Pup "We look forward to marketing our product through Whole Foods and several other high end pet retail shops. We will continue to work with Natural Product Laboratories to develop our product and plan on increasing our orders in the near future."
"This is a great opportunity for us to expand into the growing pet products and services industry," stated Mel Wilt Director of Operations for Natural Product Laboratories LLC "We will have a continued relationship with Doolittle & Pup and look forward to developing a tremendous amount of their remarkable product."
