Our Nature's Fresh recipes are made in the USA with locally sourced ingredients, including chicken and turkey that is Animal Welfare Certified by the Global Animal Partnership. All recipes 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 AND TURKEY
Our relationship with the non-profit Global Animal Partnership (G.A.P.) ensures that Nature’s Fresh chicken and turkey are 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.
All wild salmon and ocean whitefish used in Nature’s Fresh recipes come from sustainable fisheries in Alaska. Using North American sourced fish helps ensure that the fish are caught by fisherman adhering to the US’s strict environmental and labor laws.
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.
Elsa refused to eat regular dog food. We would switch between all brands of dog food and weren’t able to find something she will eat until we found Freshpet. She knows when it’s time to eat and will sit at her bowl until I put her Freshpet in it. She has so much more energy and seems happier. I couldn’t be happier with the product. Thank you so much! 😊
I feed the Nature’s Fresh Grain Free Salmon & Ocean Whitefish Recipe to my dog on a daily basis. Recommended by my vet because my 6 year old dog had tummy issues and allergies. His tummy and allergies are so much better and I also noticed his energy is off the charts. This product is totally worth it!
