Watch this short film to see what it's like to work at Pedigree Wholesale Limited.

We are Pedigree Wholesale, and we supply independent retailers with their pet and aquatic product needs. We’re a family-owned business and have been since we were founded in 1972 when two brothers and their wives followed in their family’s footsteps of developing pet businesses. They used their big dreams and entrepreneurial spirit to set up a wholesale business delivering to pet shops in the local area, and Pedigree Wholesale was born. Whilst a lot has changed over the years, we are still true pet people; we love pets and are passionate about everything pet related. This love for pets drives us to offer pet owners the highest quality and best value products through retailers who care.

We partner with 2200+ customers, making an average of 4500 deliveries every 4-weeks on primarily our own fleet, which covers most of the UK.

Our mission is to be the wholesaler of choice for partners, suppliers and customers within the specialist pet and aquatic industry, supporting businesses by providing the best service and bringing them the best products. We offer a vast portfolio of great products, an industry-leading service, and we help our customers grow by sharing best practices and gaining insight.

Working closely with both customers and suppliers is a key part of our success. We strongly believe in only promising what we can deliver and organising our business with the retailer in mind. That’s why we treat our customers as business partners, not account numbers.
