Double celebration for Arden Grange

Arden Grange

Arden Grange, the Super Premium Pet Food Company, announced this week the receipt of two accolades at the recent Pet Product Retail Association (PPRA) Awards.

This is the second consecutive year in which Arden Grange has won the award for Best Supplier. During the 5th annual awards ceremony, held at Glee Pet Index in Birmingham on 21st September, the company also took home a second award thanks to Arden Grange Area Manager Sue Hodgkiss, who was awarded the title of Best Representative.

PPRA, a division of the British Hardware Federation, is a trade association for independent retailers and suppliers in the pet industry. The Pet Product Retail Association Awards were formed in 2005, to recognise and reward excellence within the sector. In the Best Supplier category, members are asked to consider certain criteria while voting, including: product design; use; range and quality; availability; sales and wow factor.

According to Diana Truman, executive secretary of PPRA, the awards are an opportunity for the people in the industry to show their appreciation to the companies, people and products they deal with. “The Best Representative award in particular is a real coup, as it rewards the people on the front-line, we can say here is something for all your hard work!”

Sue Hodgkiss is a valued and experienced member of the Arden Grange team, having been an Area Manager with the company since 1996. During that time her passion and commitment to pet nutrition has shone through, enabling her to build fantastic relationships with retailers and breeders in central England and north Wales.

Graham Stephens, Managing Director of Arden Grange said, “We are proud to have received these awards. Our strong growth not only confirms the quality of our products, but also reflects the calibre of our staff and their commitment in upholding the Arden Grange standard of excellence.”

The award was received by Sue Hodgkiss (Area Manager) Jennifer Chambers and Val Botting (Marketing Manager and Marketing Administrator), on behalf of Arden Grange. For more information visit or contact
