Authentically fresh. authentically regional.

We make our award-winning and biologically appropriate foods from fresh regional ingredients.

ORIJEN’s Fresh Regional Ingredients mirror Mother Nature, supplying nutrients in their freshest, most natural and nourishing form.

Our award-winning kitchen is located in the heart of Alberta’s fertile farmlands and ranchlands, which provide inspiration for our foods and world-class ingredients from farmers with whom we partner directly.

Responsibly farmed, ranched, or fished by people we know and trust, our ingredients are delivered right to our kitchen.

Quality ingredients

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

Our FRESH ingredients are refrigerated to preserve freshness and nutrients. We freeze our RAW ingredients at peak season using state-of-the-art techniques to lock in their natural goodness. This allows us to use seasonal ingredients that are unique and novel, providing a variety of flavour for your dog. The nutritional benefits of RAW meat do not degrade, so your pet is getting the best, nutrient-rich protein. Two-thirds of all animal ingredients used in ORIJEN are FRESH or RAW, nourishing your dog as nature intended. This is a key factor in the superior palatability and feeding performance of ORIJEN.
