Ever Wonder How Our Fresh, Delicious Pet Foods and Treats are Made?

Freshpet Select Roasted Meals for DogsHere’s a behind the scenes look at how one of our newest recipes, Freshpet Select Roasted Meals for Dogs, is created.

It all starts in our Freshpet plant in Quakertown, PA.  First, we mix together fresh chicken and chicken liver (over 1.3 lbs. of fresh poultry goes into each 1.75 lb. bag) with ground oats, eggs, and a combination of vitamins and minerals for a 100% complete and balanced meal.  Then, we form the mixture into tender, bite-sized meatballs.  Next, we roast the meatballs under an open flame until golden brown.  Raise a paw if you’re starting to drool!  In the last step, we add pieces of real shredded chicken breast, spinach and carrots by hand.  The finished recipe is then placed into resealable bags that are easy for you to store and pour.  Just like human foods made of fresh meats and veggies, all Freshpet foods are kept refrigerated from the moment they’re made to the day they arrive in your pet aisle refrigerator.

Well, now you know our secret to making fresh recipes pets love (please don’t tell anyone).  Look for new Freshpet Select Roasted Meals for Dogs in your local grocery or Wal-Mart store.  Do you have a question about Freshpet Select Roasted Meals for Dogs, or have you already tried it and your dog loves it?  Leave us a comment or tell us your story – we want to hear from you!
