Authentically fresh

We make our award-winning and biologically appropriate foods with the world's best ingredients.

ORIJEN’s World's Best Ingredients mirror Mother Nature, supplying nutrients in their freshest, most nourishing form.

Our award-winning kitchens are located in agricultural heartlands so they can be closer to many of the sources of our world-class ingredients.

World's Best ingredients

We use animal ingredients that are fresh or raw and meet our precise standards.

The world’s best recipes come from the world’s best ingredients. That’s why we collaborate with a specially curated group of leading farmers, ranchers, and fisheries that we have had relationships with for decades. Our strong network enables us to source only the best, including lamb from New Zealand, fish from Scandinavia, and other premium ingredients from our neighbours. No matter what, every ingredient we choose is selected for its nutritional value, digestibility and superior flavor.

Our commitment to trust and transparency has led to a robust supplier vendor audit approval program and detailed ingredient traceability system.

Fresh And Raw

Fresh: Our fresh ingredients meet the AAFCO standard of refrigeration as the sole method of preservation. Raw: Our raw ingredients are the same as our fresh, but are frozen at the peak of freshness to preserve nutrients
