About Us

Exotic Nutrition FoodExotic Nutrition specializes in the manufacturing and distribution of exotic pet supplies including species-specific diets, treats, supplements, toys, cages and accessories. Exotic Nutrition formulas are proven to be some of the most nutritionally complete exotic animal foods available. These specially formulated diets are designed with leading animal nutritionists to replicate an animal’s diet in nature while providing the nutrients essential for reproduction and growth in captivity.

Where did it all begin? Back in 1976, Edward Korecky purchased a small pet store in Kenilworth, NJ. Over the next 15 years, Edward and his son Ken learned about the pet industry and developed the business into a thriving retail store. In 1993, Ken left the pet store and moved to Virginia with his wife, Liz, where they began their own family. For 10 years Ken worked as a sales manager for a pet product distributor, and it was during this time he started developing Exotic Nutrition. During the early days, all production and packaging were all done in the family’s one car garage and Exotic Nutrition pet products were only distributed to 3 states surrounding Virginia.

As the demand for exotic pet supplies grew, in 2007 Ken & Liz invested their earnings in a piece of property to build Exotic Nutrition's first production facility. The brand was able to expand with new diets for multiple species of exotic pets and wild birds. In 2016, Ken’s son Alex joined the company and his daughters Sarah & Jessica followed a year later. In 2017, Exotic Nutrition moved to a bigger 25,000 square foot facility to better serve their customers. Since then, the company has added a handful of new employees to the team and recruited an animal nutritionist to help develop more products for our furry friends. Today, Exotic Nutrition offers a diverse line of over 500 unique products that are distributed to Walmart, Amazon, Chewy and in hundreds of retail pet stores around the world. Exotic Nutrition is still owned and operated by the Korecky family.

A Message from Exotic Nutrition: The transformation from a small company into a leading manufacturer of exotic pet supplies could not have been possible without the continuous support from our customers. We are, and will continue to be, a company whose objective is to deliver the best possible products and services at an affordable price.
