Our Mission

Frontier Distributing provides high quality pet food and supplies to Pet Specialty Retailers through personable, responsive customer service.

Through our knowledge & strategic partnerships, we build brands and support our customers to benefit the end consumer and their pets.

Our History

Frontier Distributing was founded in 1986 by Mark Smith and Geoff Savage as Purina Service Center to distribute the new Pet Specialty only Pro Plan brand of dog and cat food. Although we are a young company, our roots in the pet and animal feed industry date back to the 1930’s.

Coverage Commitment

At Frontier Distributing, we commit to providing the highest level of service at the most affordable cost possible.

This commitment is rooted in the value we have for the trust both our suppliers and customers place in us, and we will continue to strive to exceed expectations in the strategic placement of products throughout our distribution network. As has been our model from the beginning, we will not jeopardize this level of service by cutting corners throughout our supply chain that may directly, or indirectly, affect our customer and vendor partners.

Like our service commitment, we are also determined to provide the highest quality of products. From the time we receive products until they arrive at the retail location, we monitor them to ensure they meet quality standards.

Our commitment is to continuously improve our processes and practices so that we protect the supply of high quality products to our customers.
