USING THE FINEST INGREDIENTS TO MAKE THE UK’s FINEST PET FOOD
Research & Development
Our Research & Development team works in collaboration with Experts in Nutrition, Production, Quality Control, and other key departments to produce only the finest Pet Food.
Charlotte, Senior Nutritionist
Charlotte our Senior Nutritionist applies her knowledge of animal biology and nutrition to help us create recipes using only the most beneficial raw materials. Each recipe then goes through strict testing, trialing, analysis and quality control, before going into production. Ensuring we stand by our promise to bring you the finest Dog & Cat Food.
Bespoke Cooking Conditions
Our approach to cooking fresh meat, fish and raw materials is ‘low and slow’. Even with low temperature, research has shown we can dramatically affect the palatability of kibbles depending on the duration of cooking.
As we look to deliver on our promise to ‘make and deliver the world’s finest pet food’, Development and Research is ongoing. Our expert nutritionists continue to refine the times and temperatures for each specific meat, fish and raw materials, aiming to provide the finest most nutritious, palatable kibbles for pets to enjoy.
The Worlds first Wenger TT3630 Thermal Twin extruder.
Allows us to include High Levels of Fresh Meat Without the use of Dry Meat Meals.
Cooked at 90c to Protect Nutrients, Antioxidants, Proteins, Retaining Natural Odour & Taste.
The Science bit…
How does it work?
Ingredients are gently mixed in the High-Intensity Pre-Conditioner by two independently driven shafts, which allows steam to be ‘folded’ into the product.
Angled steam ports in the extruder barrel orientated in the direction of the material flow, along with a unique screw profile allow further steam to be mixed in.
Using 4x more thermal energy and half to one-quarter of the mechanical energy of other twin-screw machines, a much less aggressive cooking process preserves the digestibility of proteins.
Reduced Drying Time
Manufacturing efficiencies all help to reduce energy use and costs, reducing our carbon footprint. Benefiting the environment and reducing manufacturing costs, therefore reducing the price for our Customers without compromising on quality.

It’s no secret that the term ‘Superfood’ has gained vast popularity in the media. From smoothies to salads, Superfoods are at the forefront of the human food chain trends of recent years and it shows no sign of fading as we enter this new decade.
There is a drive for people to live healthier, for longer, and as such people are taking positive steps to boosting their health and well-being through the foods that they eat. They are taking a much closer look at the ingredients that are listed on packaging and by researching online they are making more informed choices about what they eat and what they want to consume.
This trend is mirrored in the pet food market with owners taking the health and well-being of their pets more seriously than ever before.

How do Freshly Prepared products offer better health & wellbeing?
Pets would naturally feed on fresh food including meat. Using freshly prepared ingredients in dried pet food provides high level of nutrients and antioxidants which helps to support everyday health and well-being of pets.
Why does Freshly Prepared increase digestibility?
Freshly prepared meats are gently cooked at 90c. This gentle cooking process protects the nutrients therefore allowing the pet to have optimal nutrient bio-availability. Gently cooking the food means nutrients, such as proteins, stay intact rather than them being denatured when subject to extremely high cooking temperatures. This means more proteins are readily available and can be easily digested resulting in less waste.
Grain Free recipes are ideal for dogs with sensitivity or intolerance to grains or gluten; a great alternative to rice or cereal based recipes. Pet Food formulated without grains may help to alleviate common symptoms of grain sensitivity or intolerance.
The benefits of Grain Free diets can include:
- Less and smaller stools
- Reduce Shedding
- Improved Skin & Coat Condition
- Improved Breath Odour
- Reduced Wind
- Reduced Itching & Scratching
The value of Sweet Potato in your Pure Life Recipes
Sweet Potato is a key ingredient in all of your Grain Free Range. But what are the benefits of Sweet Potato and why is it added?
- It’s packed with a variety of vitamins and minerals
