Sustainable Ingredients

Pet owners want to feed their pets in a way that respects the environment. When it comes to pet food ingredients, we are conscious of sourcing pet food ingredients responsibly and sustainably.

Sustainable sourcing means ensuring to the best of our abilities that the ingredients we use have a positive impact on the local community and a limited impact on the ecosystems from which they are sourced.

The pet food industry is renowned for adding value to surplus products from the human food chain for our pet food ingredients. By giving these surplus products a purpose, the industry contributes to the circular food economy. By maximising the availability of these commodities, we can minimise the carbon footprint of producing foods specifically for use in pet food.

 

As the squeeze on resources and food availability continues, we are committed to looking at further solutions to minimise the environmental impact and sustainable use of resources in the manufacturing of pet food, one example of this is insect-based pet foods.
