Chairman and chief executive Graham Baker set up Butcher’s Pet Care in the Northamptonshire countryside in 1983. The company claims it is the number two canned dog-food brand in Britain, with 20% of the market. This year it will start work on a new £38m factory that the company says will be able to churn out more than 1,000 cans of pet food a minute. Profits have grown 44% a year from £1.8m in 2006 to £5.4m in 2009.
