5 Questions With Nature's Kitchen
Got a dog that’s a picky eater? Or a pup with skin or digestive issues? You might want to consider Nature’s Kitchen. Their all natural food is healthy and safe for dogs of all ages. Made with fresh meat, it benefits dogs with health issues as well. We’ve gotten a great response from happy customers ever since we started to carry Nature’s Kitchen last year.
Like Healthy Spot, Nature’s Kitchen was started when its founders were frustrated with the absence of quality dog foods in grocery and big box stores. So they set out to create food based around a wild diet. Their wild idea has benefited dogs across North America. We sat down with the founders of Nature's Kitchen and asked them 5 Questions about their premium dog food.
What prompted You To Start Nature’s Kitchen?
Nature’s Kitchen was created out of a need that we saw in the industry after years of importing a high end European dog food. We decided to create a product that was unlike anything else that existed with the belief that dogs were intended to consume a diet rich in fresh meat – not just “high protein” as the industry was advocating, but real, fresh, meat lightly-cooked to balance safety and nutrition for everyone.
What Criteria Do You Follow When Sourcing Your Ingredients?
- All ingredients are human grade
- All of our suppliers deal exclusively with the human food chain
- Everything we utilize must be domestically raised or sourced (except for Norwegian Kelp which only comes from Norway)
Any Fun Facts You Would Like To Share?
Our first containers that we sold over a weekend at a local farmer’s market were in clear deli-soup containers with blue painter’s tape labels identified by a “C” written with a Black Sharpie marker. That “C” stood for chicken – our only flavor at that time and the product was prepared in one of our team member’s kitchen at home. We sold everything we made that first weekend at the local farmer’s market – that was less than 5 years ago. Man does time fly - you will no longer find tape on our packaging (that changed just a few short months after our first weekend at the farmer’s market as we grew rapidly).
What Are The Benefits Of Feeding Nature's Kitchen?
- There are many, but here is a short list:
- Improved digestion & absorption of nutrients
- Improved energy
- Healthier skin and coat
- Tighter, more compact stools
- For dogs that don’t have a strong desire to eat food, NK reverses that problem!
Why did you choose to partner with Healthy Spot?
We are incredibly selective in who we choose to partner with because who you choose is a reflection on the quality of your product. We saw Healthy Spot as not only compatible, but also stood head and shoulders above the rest in every category. We believe that Healthy Spot is truly an advocate of quality foods that can be a solution to the owner that has been looking forever.
Tell Us About Your 100% Recyclable Food Packaging?
Yes our packaging is 100% recyclable – Level 5 PP (look at the bottom of the tub to see the insignia). We chose this tub specifically because of its unique properties and ability to be recycled fully. For us, the only choice was packaging that was 100% recyclable.
I had to buy another brand a week ago. Is Natures Kitchen discontinued?
