On February 22, we were honored to have Senator Ted Cruz visit our company while he made a few stops in East Texas.
He was kind enough to join Bud and the executives of the company for lunch, which included gumbo and key lime pie. After lunch, Josh Evans lead a tour through the Pet Food Plant explaining the entire manufacturing process including the food safety requirements for SQF and Safe Feed Safe Food. Senator Cruz was very quick to reach out and engage employees throughout the tour. He was very warm and took a sincere interest in them. The tour portion of his visit concluded with Mike Compton explaining the quality assurance process and procedures at our state of the art quality assurance lab. Senator Cruz was gracious to grant many photo ops at the tour’s conclusion. An interview with local media outlets was held at the company’s main office to complete his visit to Nacogdoches. Cruz ended his interview boasting the healthy economy in Texas, stating millions of people and businesses are moving to Texas annually and that it is small companies like TFP Nutrition that support our state’s economy.
