LP_WillowIn 2002, Lucy Postins was looking for a healthier way to feed her Rhodesian Ridgeback, Mosi, who was suffering from food allergies. With a background in pet nutrition, she began crafting her own recipe using minimally processed dehydrated ingredients. Not only did Mosi’s allergies improve, but all his dog park friends were soon asking for samples – and The Honest Kitchen was born.

Concentrated pet nutrition

Fast forward thirteen years, The Honest Kitchen has expanded from Lucy’s kitchen and distributes across the US and Canada. They are still committed to creating an all natural human-grade pet food using dehydrated whole foods. Their process of dehydration gently removes only the moisture and retains most natural nutrients found in raw, whole foods. Less heat and energy is used to create the foods and its compact form means less fossil fuel goes into transporting it.

Reducing their paw print

Mindful that we only have one planet earth, The Honest Kitchen prides itself on being eco-friendly and is committed to reducing its impact on the environment. All their ingredients are ethically and sustainably grown and they use only responsibly-sourced meats and fish.

Many of their ingredients are certified organic and they are working to add more wherever they can. Concerned about the presence of GMO’s in the food chain, they never buy GMO ingredients and a number of their products have received verification from the Non-GMO Project, with more on the way.

As a proud approved member of Green America, The Honest Kitchen practices sustainability, green business and fair trade, and has received the ‘four-leaf’ rating from Greenopia. All of their packaging is BPA free and the boxes are made from a combination of recycled material and Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) certified, unbleached kraft paperboard, printed with vegetable inks. They’re 100% biodegradable, recyclable or compostable after use.

Unparalleled commitment to quality

The Honest Kitchen is also committed to making the highest quality pet food for our four-legged family members. They never use fillers, by-products, preservatives or any other nasty additives. Products are all made in the USA (with nothing from China). It’s just whole foods with a dash of love!

Additionally, all of The Honest Kitchen’s products are FDA approved human grade – which means they’re produced to the exact same standards as the foods you eat. This is an important quality control distinction since all other pet foods are only at a feed grade level, with much lower safety standards.
