On October 16, 2022, the New York Post published an article titled “Freshpet investors howl as top executives quietly work for rival pet-food seller.”  The article stated in part the following:

“Investors in Freshpet — an upscale pet food maker whose stock soared during the pandemic but has tanked this year — are hissing and howling after learning that some of the company’s top executives and directors have quietly been moonlighting at a startup that also sells pricey pet food, The Post has learned.  Freshpet’s president and operating chief Scott Morris, who co-founded the Secaucus, NJ-based manufacturer in 2006 and is now its No. 2 executive — also indicates on his LinkedIn page that he launched a website in 2019 called Hive Brands that sells sustainable consumer goods. . . . The conflict has come to light as Freshpet’s stock dropped as low as $39 a share last month — shrinking its market value to $2.1 billion from a peak of $8 billion in April 2021, when the stock traded above $184.”
