California-based all-natural pet food producer Canidae is worth several million dollars, a rare feat for a family-run company with 65 employees. Canidae controls every ingredient and step of its supply chain, and it owns a small plant in Texas that Marketing Director Rafi Kalachian likens to a microbrewery. Despite giants Mars and Nestle entering the natural pet food market, Canidae has shown 40% growth year over year.
