FIrstMate Pet Food

First Mate The Best Nutrition is Simple

As a family-owned manufacturer and pet owners ourselves, we take a great deal of pride in the quality, safety, and performance of our products.

The ownership of both a dry production facility and a cannery provides us with increased confidence in the quality of our diets.

Michael Florian, the founder of Taplow Feeds and FirstMate Pet Foods, fished commercially for years aboard his fishing vessel, the Taplow. First, as a deckhand and eventually as the owner, he fished for halibut, salmon, and herring, plying the waters of the North Pacific.
