Meet the team

we’re a small (but growing fast) and passionate bunch who don’t take ourselves too seriously! We have a pretty unique set up where we craft everything ourselves from start to finish. We plan the recipes, source the best ingredients available, develop our sustainable packaging materials, create our gorgeous designs, and all importantly produce and distribute your raw dog food.
