Q: How do you ensure that the products remain fresh and retain their nutrients until the point of consumption? And what is the shelf life?
A: Freshpet mildly cooks their products to ensure nutrient stability is maintained. Food safety controls include cooking and chilling temperature monitoring following the Food and Drug Administration guidelines. Our products typically have a 23-week shelf life.
Q: How can you accurately measure the food for feeding portions based on the style of the diet (such as for an overweight pet)?
A: Freshpet’s feeding requirements meet the nutritional profile set forth by AAFCO. This information appears on our packaging to aid the pet parents in calculating the correct amount to feed their pets.
