Vital Essentials, headquartered in Green Bay, Wisconsin, is a premiere brand in the raw pet food category that includes innovative and unique products to pet parents worldwide.  Recently recognized as the most Innovative Point of Purchase Display at an international industry tradeshow, the VE RAW BAR featuring 12 unique freeze-dried chews for cats and dogs is available only to independent pet specialty stores and has quickly become the fastest selling product line for the brand.  Burgham will focus on this award-winning merchandise display and its products to introduce Vital Essentials to new markets and will quickly follow up with the full selection of freeze-dried raw food and treats.
