About us

Our Mission

Freshpet is dedicated to bringing the power of fresh, real food to pets. From the care we take to source our ingredients and make our food, to the moment it reaches your home, Freshpet’s integrity, transparency and social responsibility are the way we like to run our business.

Our Story

When we started Freshpet, we knew we could make better foods for pets. In the process of building the company, we wanted to change the industry through positive innovation that is good for pets, pet parents and the planet all at the same time.

We set out on a mission to revolutionize the way all pets are fed by making fresh, natural food. We gathered a team of the best in both pet and human food and in October 2006, we were cooking nutritious, fresh meals for pets. Soon, our little company started to grow and we found ourselves delivering fresh, refrigerated pet food to more and more stores.

We are incredibly proud and humbled that over 1 million pet parents now use our food.

It’s amazing what can happen when you start completely fresh!


The Freshpet Promise

The only ingredients we’re interested in are the best ingredients we can find. Every recipe we make starts with 100% farm-raised chicken, beef or fish, and all-natural fruits and veggies.

Why Choose Freshpet?

We make food that’s closer to its natural state because it’s easy to digest, more nutritious and, of course, more delicious. Fresh is what makes our dog food different from the rest.
Our recipes are gently steam-cooked at low temperatures to lock in key nutrients. And we never include preservatives, fillers or over-processed "meat powders."
