Tiburon Treats Inc.

Ontario East

When Jo Ann Baguioro-Thompson of Tiburon Treats Inc. wants something, she takes a bite out of it!  Literally!

Tiburon Treats Inc. was forged from Jo Ann’s desire to provide healthy, all natural treats for her pets. Originally from California, Jo Ann began producing the all natural treats from her home, often providing samples for pets of friends and family – which became an instant hit.  Realizing the potential for her product, through popularity and market desire, Jo Ann founded Tiburon Treats Inc. in 1999.

After moving toToronto, Jo Ann continued with her market and product development through the on-going creation of new flavours and enthusiastic taste testing – often by her own pets – Buster, Shorty, Kiana and Snoopy!  Jo Ann’s products are made with local, all natural ingredients – no animal byproducts, additives, salts or sugars are added – and to attest to their all natural claim, Jo Ann taste tests them herself!  Tiburon Treats Inc. launched their complete line of all natural super premium dog biscuits in 2008.

After a comprehensive search of properties and communities in which to establish her developing manufacturing business, Jo Ann found everything she needed within the Municipality of Port Hope.  The facility provides for the current needs and future growth of the business – which will be evident as a result of the ongoing accolades and awards presented to Tiburon Treats Inc.  In March of 2011, Tiburon Treats Inc. won the Top Prize in the Inaugural Bears’ Lair Business Competition in Peterboroughand has also been awarded the Stamp of Approval from Animal Wellness Magazine.

Judy Selvig, Director of Economic Development and Tourism for the Municipality of Port Hope, states “Tiburon Treats is a fantastic success story that showcases one of Port Hope’s intriguing creative economy manufacturers.  Jo Ann is passionate about her business and has the drive and direction to make Tiburon Treats Inc. even more successful.”

Jo Ann continues to promote the mandate of Tiburon Treats Inc. – to foster animal wellness including nutrition, taste, and responsible pet ownership – through her participation at National and Regional Trade Shows.
