The Story Behind Green Pantry
Our main objective was to produce the worlds first 100% Natural complete dog food to contain Pura-Pel, a natural bio-active herbage mix.
Green Pantry foods reflect the natural diet of the dog which is meat, part digested carbohydrate and vegetable matter from its prey and a range of foraged seeds, berries roots and herbs. All nutrients in our foods, including vitamins and pro-vitamins, are inherent in the raw materials. They are made from whole British Farmed ingredients, meat, properly balanced carbohydrates, vegetables and herbage. This means that, unlike many modern pet foods, they can be properly and safely digested.
Green Pantry's food formulations make them ideal for puppies, adult dogs and senior dogs optimal nutrition is critical in the maintenance of good health.
2008 - Norfolk, the home of Green Pantry. Founded in early 2008, our main objective was to produce the worlds first 100% Natural complete dog food to contain a unique blend of bio-active herbs Pura-Pel, and a high content of natural vitamins and minerals that could potentially help dogs with a natural control of intestinal and external hygiene. All to be made in the UK with British local produce in recyclable packing.
2008 - 2013 We only had one product. Starting with only one product line Turkey and Brown Rice, We were up against much larger product ranges and companies. But through hard work, Family service, Dogged determination and Phenomenal feedback and results the range and stockists grew. Knowing we had to stay ahead of the latest industry trends meant the development of one of the UK's first Grain Free complete diets Trout, Salmon and Vegetables.
