The Importance of Australian-Made Pet Food

The Importance Of Australian-Made Pet Food

Australians love backing Australians. Most of us go out of our way to support local businesses and purchase products that have been home-grown.

Not All Australian-Owned Pet Food Is Australian-Made

That’s why it’s very surprising to a lot of people when they find out the pet food they buy states “Australian-owned” when in actual fact, it has been imported from overseas and manufactured with foreign ingredients. Sure, an Australian might own the company or be a majority stakeholder, but nothing about the manufacturing of the product or sourcing of ingredients is based in Australia.

Questions To Ask About Your Pet Food

Do you know where your pet food is produced/manufactured/made?

Where do they source the ingredients from to make it?

Be aware of the clever wording companies use. They can be misleading and tricky! If it’s still unclear, contact them to find out! You have a right to know where the food you’re feeding your pet comes from and potentially how old it is by the time you purchase it off the shelf.

Raw & Fresh Is Australian-Owned AND Made

At Raw & Fresh, we are very proud to say that we are 100% Australian-owned and operated. We source ALL of our products locally from local farms and make your raw cat and raw dog food meals ourselves, in-house, on the Central Coast of New South Wales.

It really doesn’t get more home-grown than that. You can learn more about what sets Raw & Fresh apart from other raw pet food companies here. If you’d like to switch and support a local company, get in touch with us at
