Behind The Brand: Northwest Naturals
In a world full of woe and worry, we strive to be the generators of knowledge, delight, and positivity in our little corner of the world. This begins with one conscious choice at a time, and for us starts with finding like-minded companies and products to fill our shelves and offer to the pet-guardians in our community. We keep a keen eye on pet industry trends and seek solutions to potential challenges so you can feel confident in the products you buy from us.
One brand we are thrilled to have found is Northwest Naturals. When we first met this hardworking team, we couldn’t believe how many boxes they checked off for us in what we look for in a pet food. They are a family owned company that makes their food from start to finish in their own USDA Human Grade facility in Portland, OR. According to the company, all of their meat is human grade and human edible, they use locally sourced produce, and use USA sourced proteins and veggies whenever available. They also have a HUGE range of products and protein sources that make rotational feeding a breeze.
Northwest Naturals is owned by the family run business Morasch Meats in Portland, OR. Morasch Meats has years under their belt in processing meats for restaurants and grocery stores, and founded Northwest Naturals to produce their very own brand of raw frozen pet food using the same sourcing and processing as their products they make for humans. To Northwest Naturals, providing biologically appropriate food to animals is just one piece of the puzzle — the other being the quality of those foods.
The benefits of feeding your dogs and cats a raw diet are endless, including improved skin conditions, cleaner teeth, better digestion, and healthier joints — but when you explore pet food brands that go beyond the bare minimum standards of raw food and opt for raw food that is:
- Global Food Safety Initiative, Oregon Tilth, and USDA certified
- Made in a human-grade facility
You're not only significantly improving the nutritional value of your pet's food, you're choosing ethical food production over the factory-farmed alternative. That is a meaningful conscious choice to make.
Northwest Naturals offers a wide variety of frozen raw and freeze dried protein sources and sizes making it easy to find the right formula for your pets. This level of convenience is another one of the many reasons we love offering this brand to our customers.
