Sustainably Sourced Proteins

Wild-Caught Alaskan Salmon as the 1st Ingredient: Our wild-caught Alaskan salmon is sourced from fisheries that maintain sustainable salmon populations and minimize the impact to their habitats.

Cage-Free Chicken as the 1st Ingredient: Our chickens are raised humanely and stress-free — without cages, protected from the elements, and in an enriched environment with natural light and proper rest.

Plant-Based Formulas

Brewer’s Yeast: This plant-based formula releases fewer carbon emissions, compared to meat-based recipes, and includes brewer’s yeast which is upcycled from the brewing industry while providing critical non-animal derived nutrients.

Regeneratively Farmed Ingredients

We partner with US farmers that are introducing regenerative agriculture which leverages cutting edge technology in robotics, water usage, weed management, and pesticide usage to reduce the negative impact on our precious farmlands. Where available, and whenever possible, we actively seek and purchase ingredients sourced utilizing regenerative farming practices for our pet food recipes. While we are just getting started, we have set an ambitious goal of sourcing over 80% of all our ingredients from regenerative agriculture within 10 years (by 2030).

Farming Practices and Relationships

Canidae is committed to supporting US farmers who believe as we do that our top priority is to leave American soil to future generations in a better state than we found it. While only a small group today, we hope to expand their cause by helping to bring regenerative farming techniques that can be both sustainable and economically viable.

Supporting US Farmers

By seeking out like-minded farmers directly, we are actively demonstrating how we can support them in introducing regenerative agriculture while securing a sustainable yet economically viable agricultural model.
