Secret sauce? Target again refuses to name the ‘expert’ veterinarians involved with new in-house pet food brand Kindful — or even name the manufacturer

After a series of email exchanges with officials at Target (TGT) over several days including executive vice president Katie Boylan regarding the Minneapolis, MN-based company’s just-launched pet food brand Kindful, company spokesman Konnor Schmaltz told TCR late Monday that the company would decline to name any veterinarian who was involved in any capacity with the research and development of Kindful, which includes 50 dry dog and cat dry foods, canned foods, meal toppers, and treats. The company also refused to name the entity responsible for manufacturing the food.
