About Us

Meet the team…

We’re a small but passionate (and growing) bunch.

Jess

Chief Dogsbody

Jess started Naturaw after encountering frustrating problems with raw suppliers websites (or lack of them), misleading information about ingredients & bone content and infrequent deliveries. From an organic farming background, she is incredibly passionate about organic produce.

Tom

Design & Creative

Two of Tom’s biggest passions in life are his dogs and his career in design/ecommerce. Naturaw was the perfect marriage of the two and the website is a constant labour of love. Recently found obsessing over the smallest detail of our own range packaging!

About our little company…

Naturaw is a family run company based in rural North Yorkshire. We’re passionate about our pets, and nowhere more is this displayed than by our desire to feed them the best diet available… raw (which we think is pretty impressive seen as there are several vegetarians amidst our ranks).

In 2010 Jess completed a degree in Equine Science at Lincoln University where she elected to complete modules on animal nutrition, learning and training, and anatomy, alongside her equine studies. We were prompted to change all the families pets to a raw diet when our beloved Ridgeback Louis was suffering with chronic ear and skin infections, we switched between several brands of dried foods, with varying degrees of improvement, but nothing really cleared it up. After taking the plunge to raw, Louis no longer had any of the dark itchy skin on his belly, nor was he constantly shaking his head and scratching his ears. We have never looked back, and since added many new furry faces to our family both feline and canine, all of whom are positively thriving on their species appropriate diet.

In Late 2015 we opened new premises just down the road at Marston Moor Business Park near Tockwith (5 minutes from junction 46 of the A1). As well as our lovely little outlet shop and the click & collect service, this allowed us to have a spacious warehouse and packing facilities behind the scenes. We weren’t done there though, in 2016 we expanded into the adjacent unit, built state of the art kitchen facilities and launched our own range of raw food. Produced completely in-house, we have crafted every aspect ourselves using our experience and knowledge as raw feeders. From the chunky mince made from quality cuts of British meat, to the beautiful biodegradable packaging – packaging that we strongly believe is labelled to an unbeatable standard in clarity, transparency, and quite simply helpfulness. In addition, we are incredibly proud to have launched the first raw pet food in the UK to be organically licensed (OFG).

We couldn’t have done any of this without our lovely customers, so thank you to every single one of you. 2017 is set to be a huge year for us, and we are incredibly excited about what lies ahead.


what our customers say…

I started feeding Dexter and our rescue pup Rudy on raw last year, and the benefits have been so obvious for all to see that i’d never go back. Since finding Naturaw i’ve never had any need to consider another supplier of raw goodies, choosing what to give the guys next week and placing my order is always far more exciting than i’d ever have predicted!

My first order arrived yesterday and I was very impressed with the quick delivery and packaging. There is a great variety of meat and bone and I know Oliver, Stanley and little Bentley will just love it. I will be ordering again. Many thanks.
