Halo, Purely for Pets(R) Wins Eco-Excellence Award(TM) for Best Pet Food, and Two Other Honors

TAMPA, FL–(Marketwired – August 31, 2016) – Halo, Purely for Pets® wins NCW Eco-Excellence Award™ for Best Pet Food for 2016. This award coupled with a recent “Best Canned Cat Food” review from ConsumerSearch and recognition from iHeartCats as one of “5 Big-Hearted Companies that Give Back,” showcases how Halo continues to shine bright among its competitors in the pet industry.

“We are gratified and humbled by this recognition,” said Halo CEO Myron Lyskanycz. “Our goal each and every day is to be ‘purely for pets’…holistically nurturing the health of the companion animals that do so much to enrich our own daily lives. It’s our passion and our promise.”

The Eco-Excellence Awards recognize excellence among children, adult and pet lifestyle brands that stand out for their social and environmental sustainability. More than 500 products were reviewed and over 350,000 people voted this year. Other 2016 Eco-Excellence winners include The Honest Company, Organickidz, California Baby, and John Paul Pet.

Additionally, ConsumerSearch honored Halo Spot’s Stew® for Cats Wholesome Chicken Recipe. According to the consumer research site, the #1 ranking is based on expert and user reviews, saying Halo “looks remarkably like a home-cooked stew for people” and “its chunks of butcher-quality meat are great for cats.”

The beloved pet product company was also recognized for its philanthropy in a feature post on iHeartCats, entitled “5 Big-Hearted Companies That Give Back to Cats.” Halo shares space on the list with Petco, PetSmart, Embrace Pet Insurance and iHeartCats.

Halo believes its widespread recognition stems from using only WHOLE meats, never any rendered meat meals, such as chicken meal or by-product meal. WHOLE meat is more digestible, more bioavailable, and more delicious for pets.
