Mission & Values
Revolutionize the way all pets are fed, by making fresh, natural food to make a real difference to pets’ lives.
Our pets enrich our lives: Dogs and cats are members of our families and deserve to be treated that way.
Fresh food makes a difference: We believe that fresh foods have a powerful impact on the health of pets, and people.
Innovation is at the core of everything we do: We’re changing pet food for good.
Only the highest quality: From our ingredients to our cooking process, we strive for only the best, without cutting corners.
All pets deserve fresh food: We’re committed to helping dogs and cats in need across the country.
Long before we began Freshpet, our team met working together in pet food manufacturing. We loved what we did, but wondered if the products we made were really best for pets. Our dogs and cats were eating nothing but shelf-stable food laden with preservatives. Then one day, it dawned on us. They were missing out on fresh, nutritious foods we enjoy, and that makes us feel better too. We were eating fresher, less processed foods, so why shouldn’t our pets?
So we set out on a mission: to revolutionize the way all pets are fed, by making fresh, natural food.
We gathered a team, the best and brightest in both pet and human food. And by October of 2006, we were cooking nutritious meals designed specifically for pets and their unique dietary needs. Soon, our little company started to grow, and we found ourselves delivering fresh, refrigerated pet food to more and more stores. Dogs and cats were gobbling up our fresh meals, and pet parents were seeing huge transformations in their pets’ health.
Today, fresh food makes a difference in the lives of thousands of dogs and cats across the country. And with the support of Freshpet parents everywhere, we’re determined to make fresh food for pets to enjoy for years to come.
