Good Food is Not Great Food
There are a lot of pet foods on the market, enough to make it difficult, if not near impossible to know at first glance which one would be best for your pet. Here are some things we think you should know to make the choosing easier. Good food contains quality ingredients and is made by large corporations or is outsourced by marketing firms to be processed at the discretion of third party manufacturers. Great food contains nutritionally balanced, trustworthy Canadian and US sourced ingredients made in small batches for superior quality control. It is crafted with pride and made with purpose by companies that are family owned. Nutrience is great food, made to nourish your pet from the inside out.
Doing it Right
To provide every assurance possible that the pets we feed are well nourished and full spirited, every bag of Nutrience is processed to the highest possible standard within pet food manufacturing and is in fact equal to that of human grade facilities. Every batch made passes the most rigorous testing procedures, subscribes to the most stringent food processing policies and is double checked by third parties for safety. In addition, our facility is routinely audited by NSF International and found to be compliant with regulatory standards, client specifications and procedures.
