Our Nature's Fresh recipes are made in the USA with locally sourced ingredients, including chicken that is Animal Welfare Certified by the Global Animal Partnership. All recipes are verified non-GMO and use BPA free packaging.
As Freshpet's first carbon neutral pet food brand, what carbon emissions we can’t eliminate from the production process, we have mitigated with carbon offsets from our partner, Conservation International. Looking towards the future, we are continuously analyzing our carbon footprint to develop a roadmap to true neutrality.
LOCALLY SOURCED INGREDIENTS
Nature’s Fresh commitment to using local sourcing whenever possible contributes to:
— Improving the well-being of the communities we operate in
— Maintaining the integrity of labor practices and environmental standards that are consistent with Freshpet’s high standards
— Lowering our carbon footprint by reducing the distance ingredients are transported
— Reducing ingredient damage and waste in transit
ANIMAL WELFARE CERTIFIED CHICKEN
Our relationship with the non-profit Global Animal Partnership (G.A.P.) ensures that Nature’s Fresh chicken is raised without antibiotics and are fed a vegetarian diet with no animal by-products. All G.A.P. certified farms are audited to ensure they meet comprehensive animal welfare standards regarding well-being and safety.
Nature’s Fresh packaging is designed to keep the product fresh and nutritious with as little impact on the planet as possible. Working closely with our packaging suppliers, we developed products that require 10x less packaging compared to other wet foods packaged in plastic tubs or cans.
Unlike some canned wet foods, Nature’s Fresh packaging is BPA free ensuring that your pet is not ingesting this chemical on a daily basis. BPA stands for bisphenol A- a known endocrine disruptor in humans. Many human food packages are eliminating it, and we believe it should not be used in pet food packaging either.
WIND POWERED REFRIGERATORS
On going efforts have improved the efficiency of our refrigerators up to 8.5x compared to older models. In fact, our latest full-size models consume less energy than two 75 watt light bulbs, and use climate friendly R-290 refrigerant which doesn’t deplete the ozone layer.
In a major commitment to improving the sustainability of our distribution network, all Freshpet refrigerators are powered by US wind energy using Renewable Energy Credits (RECs). Matching our estimated electric usage with RECs helps support the development of sustainable energy and a lower carbon power grid.
*Freshpet matches all purchased electricity for our Kitchens with Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) from US based wind farms.
I know Ginny probably isn't the typical pet that you'll receive a story about, but your food has seriously changed everything for her. When I adopted Ginny she was four weeks old. For the next six weeks she never left my sight. She was so teeny I was able to put her in an oversized pouch thing that I wore around my neck. This of course created an incredible bond between us, only strengthened by the fact that I bottle fed her and essentially acted as her mother. In time I taught her how to use a litter box and weaned her off her bottle. As per her breeder's recommendation I had her on a dry food-stuffs and left it out for her so she could choose when she was hungry. I was also supplementing this dry food with fresh fruits and veggies - to closely relate to her natural diet. For the first two years Ginny was eating solid food and everything was going fine, until our food supplier ran out (momentarily) of the special food she was eating. This caused me to start researching what foods Ginny could and should be eating. Well it became quickly evident that I was not doing the best I could as her "mother". We started trying different raw-meat foods, but I was still unsatisfied. Ginny either had a lack of interest or I wasn't noticing any changes. Finally Freshpet was recommended to me! Ginny has only been eating this for about six months now, but I have seen a noticeable difference. Her coat is more vibrant than ever, she's filled out more, and she's eating all of her food! Freshpet's obvious benefits and easy access will keep Ginny and I coming back for a long time. Thank you!
My name is Cookie and I am 15. I ate dry food for the majority of my life however became very picky this past year. After trying several other brands, I recently started eating Freshpet and I absolutely LOVE it. I have no interest in dry food anymore, even as a snack. My favorite is the Chicken with Ocean White Fish recipe. I finish my serving immediately and beg for more! I feel confident with the ingredients and health benefits and I love that it's a fresh meal compared to dry food. Although I have never liked canned wet food, I drink a lot of water to stay hydrated. I love that the fresh morals of Freshpet are soft and more comparable to wet food and less processed. My mom was very shocked that I liked this because I was refusing many other reputable brands over several months. Although it's only been two months, this is by far the best cat food I have had! And I am very picky about quality and ingredients… this is definitely my favorite food now!
