NEPTUNE CITY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nylabone, an iconic brand in the Central Garden & Pet portfolio (Nasdaq: CENT) (Nasdaq: CENTA), has received national recognition from two pet industry awards for its Gourmet Style chew toys. Crafted with bold bits of flavor roasted throughout, the chew toy collection won “Chew Toy Product of the Year” in the 2022 Pet Independent Innovation Awards and was selected as a finalist in the 2022 Pet Product News Editors’ Choice Awards.
“We created Gourmet Style chew toys to look different, chew different, and indulge even the most particular dogs with a distinctly sensational chewing experience,” said Glen S.
