PRODUCTION: Our insect protein is sourced from The Netherlands. Except for insect protein, we only use EU-sourced plant based ingredients, with the exception of yucca schidigera which comprises 0,01% of our diet and is grown in California. We also produce our food in The Netherlands, in close proximity to the insect facility.
Our puppy food are rich in protein from the insect black soldier fly; a high-quality protein source that is completely free of growth hormones and antibiotics. Read more about all the dog benefits and why your pup will love insects below.
HIGH QUALITY PROTEIN
Insects are incredibly nutrient-rich. They are an animal protein source, rich in the same essential nutrients that your puppy would get from traditional meat. This means that insects contain all the protein and amino acids your dog needs to grow, get energy and build muscles.
As a bonus, the black soldier fly larvae have high digestibility, which means that your pup can easily digest and absorb the valuable protein. On top of that, our amazing insects also provide essential fatty acids and minerals!
DHA FATTY ACID FOR HEALTHY BRAIN DEVELOPMENT
Our puppy diet contains higher levels of a specific omega-3 fatty acid called Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). DHA is essential for a healthy development of the puppy's brain, retina and nervous system
SUPPORTS GUT HEALTH
Our diets contains healthy dietary fibers and prebiotics from natural sources, which has proven beneficial effects on the intestinal bacterial flora. Just like in humans, research has shown how a healthy intestinal flora in dogs has positive effects on the body's well-being and general immune system. Nutrients that feed the good bacteria in the gut are called prebiotics. Our feed contains several natural prebiotics, to give the good intestinal bacteria optimal conditions to thrive. Dietary fiber contributes with an increased feeling of satiety, a healthy movement of intestines and passage time of the feed. In our feed, among other ingredients, beetroot contributes with natural dietary fibre. This, in combination with our products being naturally gluten free, make them extra kind to the digestive system.
BASED ON RESEARCH
Our products are developed with veterinarians and nutritionists to ensure an optimal nutritional profile. All our recipes are based on the nutritional recommendations from FEDIAF, an organisation that regularly publish new guidelines for dog and cat nutrition based on the latest research.
Our products are packed with nutrition from natural and carefully selected ingredients, and added vitamins and minerals. Insects is our only animal ingredient - the rest is plant based. Our insects are resistant to disease and grow quickly on their own. Thanks to this, our production is completely free of unwanted substances such as antibiotics and growth hormones.

It should be easy to choose climate-smart dog food. Products based on insects are not only nutritious for your dog, they are also kind to our planet. Insects are extremely resource-efficient in production compared to more traditional protein sources such as beef, pork and chicken. Insects need less water and food, take up almost no space at all and cause less carbon dioxide emissions.
