Carlyle Group-backed Manna Pro Products, a manufacturer and seller of pet care and nutrition products, has agreed to acquire Dinovite, an online retailer of pet food and products.

Pet has been one of the fastest-growing categories online, with pet ownership and engagement accelerating during the pandemic and maintaining growth in 2021.

“We are excited to join Manna Pro’s portfolio of outstanding brands and have been impressed with their strategy to expand their reach through direct-to-consumer businesses,” said J.B. Kropp, president of Dinovite. “Their help and resources will enable us to continue to be able to offer the best products to our customers while expanding our catalog to include several of Manna Pro’s brands.”
