how Freshpet is made

Every wholesome recipe starts with high quality proteins and farm-fresh fruits and vegetables. Our healthy meals are steam-cooked to lock in vital nutrients, and it’s all done according to the highest quality and food safety standards under the oversight of our veterinary nutritionists.


At Freshpet, we only use the good stuff. We start by using the best ingredients available. This means our recipes are packed with the highest quality chicken, beef, and fish and nutrient-rich fruits and veggies.

no meat powders, meals, or by-products

a new level of safety and quality standards

Our Kitchens have higher standards than some human-food manufacturers do. Freshpet Kitchens are registered with APHIS and the FDA, and all of our meals undergo over 20 quality and safety tests before leaving our kitchens.

Safe production and a healthy workplace are our top priorities at the Freshpet Kitchens. We’re continually improving our processes to ensure all team members feel responsible and empowered to achieve our goal of an accident-free facility.
