You can see that those cups add up... and so does your garbage bin full of those little plastic baggies.
Petcurean only uses market fresh meats, veggies, fruits and berries that are sourced from a trusted network of farmers, ranchers and producers that must meet or exceed stringent health, safety and quality criteria. These producers are close to the production facility which means there is a lower carbon footprint and a lower probability of contamination. They don't buy ingredients from China and they don't use by-product meals or un-named meat. In addition, Petcurean tests every batch of food for salmonella. AND they only make pet food. A lot of economy dog foods are usually a branch of of some multinational company that makes a lot of other things aside from pet food: breakfast cereal, soaps, household products, ect. Maybe it's just me, but when I do too much at once, I end up making mistakes or cutting corners "just to get it done". For pet food, this usually results in massive recalls for contamination.
