Cat Litter – Competitive Advantages

Clumping: Our cat litter has a tight clumping ability that produces a solid clump that is easily scooped away.

Rapid Clumping: Since cats cover and scratch, our rapid clumping formula ensures less dust and tracks around the house.

Odor Control: Our cat litter is made with 100% natural bentonite which is a natural absorbent, yet for those who prefer a scented litter for maximum odour control, we provide various choices of natural scents.

Environmental friendly / Dust free: Our Litter is made of 100% natural bentonite which is an inert compound. Part of our ISO-9001 milling process eliminates all fine particles on our cat litter, this helps you avoid breathing or cleaning up dust.

We have many years of experience packaging, shipping and delivering our product to large retailers in Mexico and the US. Some of the best-known customers are Soriana and Happy Flower, both have a competitive edge in their market using our product. Today all of our cat litter that we produce is sold under private label.
