The follow response was received by a pet owner who asked Petcurean Pet Foods to provide their Pledge to Quality and Origin…
Thank you for your email and your support of Petcurean products.
The Truth About Pet Food pledge that you mentioned below required Petcurean to disclose information that we are not willing to share (as we value the relationships we have with our suppliers and also for competitive reasons). That said, Petcurean values transparency and I can assure you that all of the meat protein, grains, cereals, fruits and vegetables in our GO! and NOW FRESH products are sourced from North America (the majority from Canada). Petcurean dry pet foods are manufactured in Ontario, Canada. Petcurean canned products are produced at plants in Ontario and New Jersey at EU, FDA and CFIA-certified plants, which must meet a very high standard of sanitation, cleanliness and manufacturing practices. We set extremely high quality and safety standards for ourselves, our suppliers and our partners. The amino acid, Taurine – which makes up less than a quarter of one percent (≤ 0.15%) of any of the GO! or NOW FRESH diets – comes from a supplier that sources that ingredient from China. Our suppliers for Taurine must follow very strict safety, manufacturing and quality assurance programs. Even more specifically, our Taurine suppliers operate HACCP (Hazard analysis and critical control points) certified facilities that have protocols for traceability and initiatives that enable transparency in the supply chain.
I can completely appreciate your concern to know that the company you choose to feed is forthright about their products. At Petcurean, we apply the same standards and care to ingredient selection and quality control as we do when feeding our own families.
If you have any more specific questions that I haven’t answered in my email above, please don’t hesitate to ask.
Please keep asking your pet food’s manufacturer to provide their Pledge. The Pledge is very simple; it asks a pet food company CEO or President to sign their name (give their word) to the quality and origin of all ingredients in the pet foods and treats. No more Just Trust Me.
Wishing you and your pet(s) the best,
