Why organic ingredients could win you and your pet over

Apr 24 2017, 4:36 pm

Nowadays, eating organic is so much more than a trend. It offers you a guarantee that the ingredients in your food have met strict government standards for how they are grown, handled, and processed. Organic labeling gives you the assurance that the practices behind the food you eat encourage soil and water conservation, regeneration, and reduce pollution.

If you recognize these benefits, you’ll want to get yourself onboard – along with your pet. It’s actually true – your furry friend can thrive on an organic-based diet for more than one reason.

Daily Hive did some research and found a brand new, organic pet food that’s packed with lots of healthy ingredients. Serve this to your pet and chances are you’ll be their biggest fan – if they aren’t already.

We’ve compiled a list of four key elements you need to know when it comes to feeding your pet.

Trusted ingredients

Petcurean’s GATHER is the first and only premium pet food with sustainably produced, certified organic ingredients, and no rendered ingredients. This pet food also has no GMOs, antibiotics or added growth hormones, no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. The company is totally transparent with all the ingredients – just read the package and you’ll know exactly what’s going into each meal your pet is eating. With recipes including certified organic, free-run chicken, peas, flaxseed, oatmeal, and barley, this pet food takes nutrition to the next level. What’s also cool is that Petcurean not only knows all the ingredients in their recipes, they also have an incredible commitment to freshness and ingredient sourcing. So much so that they know the GPS coordinates of where the krill was harvested in a bag of Free Acres or Wild Ocean dog food.

Minimized environmental impact

Having your pet on an organic diet can also allow for peace of mind. It saves you the stress of worrying about added preservatives. Organic practices also have a strong environmental component. And who doesn’t love an opportunity to be green. Petcurean focuses on creating pet food with packaging that maintains freshness and has durability. Petcurean sources its dry pet food bags from North America instead of overseas, which lowers the brand’s carbon footprint. GATHER packaging is one-third plant-based, allowing Petcurean to reduce its use of petroleum-based resources by 30%.
