We believe we can make truly good food for our pets, while being a force for good. We never stop pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. And while we know we’re not perfect, we do all we can to lessen our environmental impact while giving pets the freshest, healthiest food.
Our Nature’s Fresh packaging has a new look! Our recipes start with fresh fruits, veggies, and protein from family farms that are Animal Welfare Certified, and sustainably sourced. They’re as nutritious for our pets as they are kind to our planet.
We harvest rainwater to irrigate our landscape, including the trees we’ve planted. Our underground reservoirs hold almost half a million gallons of rainwater—enough to irrigate 62,000 sq. ft.
Harvesting rainwater helps reduce storm water runoff from our property. This lightens peak flow loads to local waters, and helps avoid streambank erosion.
Reduced runoff means less surface water contamination from pesticides, sediment, metals and fertilizers. Go Earth!

This reduces our carbon footprint and supports a more sustainable electric grid.
We strongly support local farmers whose labor and environmental practices align with ours. That’s why we focus on sourcing our ingredients from farms close to our Freshpet Kitchens. Local sourcing also helps contribute to the well-being of our local communities—and uses less transportation. All in all, what’s good for our neighbors is good for our world, too.

In 2020, Freshpet worked with US farmers to supply over 6 million lbs of chicken and turkey that is Animal Welfare Certified by the Global Animal Partnership to be cage free and raised without antibiotics.
In addition to providing our birds a happier life, this commitment helps limit the rise of antibiotic resistant bacteria.
