Our Family is Proud to Serve Yours
Feeding the world’s love of their pets.
Profitable Growth Through Quality, Value, Service and Innovation
Family owned and operated for more than 50 years, Sunshine Mills, Inc. is proud to serve the world’s pets with a whole variety of foods and treats at value prices. We own and operate multiple plants within the U.S.A. so we control the quality of our products from start to finish. Each plant is certified for food safety to ensure that each and every batch we produce is perfect in every way. Sunshine Mills has developed through four generations as a truly American family business. Headquartered in the rural north Alabama town of Red Bay, the company began as a producer of animal feed in 1949 under the direction of Omer Bullen and his son-in-law, Fred Bostick, Jr. The business continued to grow and pet food was added to the production lineup in 1960 in a pelleted form. John Bostick joined the team in the early 70’s and helped develop Sunshine’s economy dog foods into more complete lines. Over the next several years the Sunshine, Field Trial, and Cat Café brands grew to be leaders in value across much of the Southeastern and Southwestern United States. Alan Bostick took over the reins as President and CEO in 1984 and has continued the progress and foresight of his grandfather, father and brother, expanding their product line and geographic reach to eventually include all of the United States and more than 30 countries worldwide. Today, our products are marketed under various Sunshine brands as well as private label offerings. These items can be purchased at most of the major retailers across the USA including mass merchandisers, grocery, value discount, clubs, pet specialty, hardware and the farm & feed channels. As much as we have grown, we have never lost our focus on family values. Our pets are a part of our family. That’s why we at Sunshine Mills do everything in our power to craft carefully designed food and treats to help you maintain your pet’s health and happiness for many years to come.
"I work for a super premium pet food company and do love my job. I just want to thank you for making a quality product that people can afford in the super market arena. I see so many products in the large pet food retail stores that I cannot in good conscience recommend to pet parents. I obviously prefer to buy my products, however, I am currently rotating Evolve for both my cats and dogs on a regular basis. I am constantly recommending Evolve to people who cannot pay for premium diets and I get many thanks for those I have helped get away from the cheap chemical laden mass produced pet foods that many grocery chains carry. Again Evolve is a great product and I thank you for making an affordable option for people on a budget. Keep it simple and safe."
