Beneful Offers Great Variety In Dog Foods

When it comes to food, variety is always a good thing, and trying new foods and new flavors is always fun. This fact holds true for more than just people and especially so for dogs with their love of food.
When it comes to many pet owners, they don’t think of giving their dogs a varied diet, they stick to the same flavor or style of food for their dog and usually keep feeding them that one kind over and over. This is understandable sometimes, since it can sometimes be difficult finding the right food and brand. However, Beneful is a quality brand that offers a variety of different flavors and styles of dog food and treats, both wet and dry.
Beneful’s dog foods contain quality ingredients that are healthy for dogs, such as vegetables, grains, and fruits. With many extra ingredients, Beneful offers even greater nutrient values and additional flavors to provide more varied diets for dogs.

Beneful’s Originals dry dog food is a popular Amazon choice, with many choices in flavor, it will have any dog running when the dinner bell rings. Along with the main flavors, their are added vegetables like carrots and potatoes, which enhance the flavor even more. What’s even more important, is that the food supplies the proper nutrients to help every dog stay strong and healthy.

Chopped blends is another popular choice from Beneful as well. Mostly designed for dogs on the smaller side, this wet dog food is full of small and soft meat pieces, which allows for easier chewing. Of course the food is fine for bigger dogs to eat as well, as it packs in all the flavor and nutrients of the other styles too. See link: “https://www.beneful.com/products/wet-dog-food/

For a blend of different meats, Beneful Incredibites is similar to a jerky meat that is designed for dogs, most dogs go crazy over this food. Indredibites are filled with a ton of protein for helping dogs receive the necessary nutrients to grow strong.

The exit of Mr. Murray from CCMP Capital came as a shock to the company and triggered what is referred to as a loss of a “key man” clause in the private-equity industry. Part of the reason he was a key man was that he was at the helm when the company raised $3.6 billion CCMP Capital Investors III LP fund which was one of the biggest deal the company has had (read more: 5 Questions with Stephen Murray, CEO of CCMP Capital).

It is normal for the private-equity firms to select a few individuals in the company as the deal makers often known as the key men because they are central to the company’s investment plans.

After the death of Stephen Murray, the firm opened discussions with the investors of CCMP Capital III to alleviate the concerns of Mr. Murray’s departure from the company to determine the company’s future.

After new promises of investors protections, the limited partners finally supported a reinstatement of the fund’s investment period and gave the firm a go-ahead to appoint a new permanent CEO. CCMP Capital is known to have invested in companies such as the food vendor Aramark, Quiznos, and Cabela’s Inc. For now, the CEO and Presidential roles will be undertaken by Greg Brenneman, who is the company’s chairman. Read more: This Old Thing? Private Equity Honcho Drops Little Place Uptown for $11M

CCMP Capital has offices in New York, Texas, The Woodlands, and London. The company has chosen to disperse the roles of Mr. Murray across the organization according to the spokesperson of the company. For instance, the Investors Relations will be under the Managing Director Jonathan Lynch. The finance issues will also be headed by Richard Zamino, who is the current firm’s consumer and retail practice.

Stephen Murray graduated with a bachelor’s degree in economics from Boston College in 1994 and later graduated with an MBA from the esteemed Columbia Business School. Apart from being a financial advisor and dealmaker, he was a kind-hearted man who contributed to the community through contribution to various institutions such as Make-A-Wish Foundation.
