When we started Freshpet, we knew we could make better foods for pets. In the process of building the company, we wanted to change the industry through positive innovation that is good for pets, pet parents and the planet all at the same time.
We gathered a team of the best in both pet and human food and in October 2006, we were cooking nutritious, fresh meals for pets.
Our ideology on how to feed our four-legged family members is really simple: use fresh, whole ingredients, gently cooked without preservatives, and kept in the fridge where meats belong.
All Freshpet recipes are made with US-raised chicken or beef delivered daily to our US-based Freshpet Kitchen in Bethlehem, PA. We then use steam-cooking to lock in vital nutrients, all done according to FDA and USDA standards.
We are incredibly proud and humbled that over 1 million pet parents now use our food from our retail network of over 20,000 fridges across North America. It’s amazing what can happen when you start completely fresh!
