PUEBLO - The Mars Petcare plant at the Pueblo Airport Industrial Park will soon be closing. The 41 employees at the plant notified last month that the facility would close in September.
Ryan Bowling, a spokesperson for Mars Inc. says American dog owners are choosing smaller breeds over large creating excess capacity in the dog food market.
The multi-national food company makes the Pedigree and Shiska's brands of pet food, as well as manufacturing Ol' Roy dog food for Walmart.
