Our animals are part of our family. They are like children to us. We want to feed our pets good food. Not only that is good for them but, that is also healthy for them. Against the grain pet food has dog and cat food.
Here is a little infomation about them:
85% Meat. 0% Grain.
Because dogs and cats are primarily carnivores, we have designed all of our formulations to include at least 85% meat . But not only do we make meat- dominant foods, but our proteins are all of high quality, and only sourced from hand-selected curators. They never contain growth hormones and are anti-biotic free. To show you how proud we are of our carefully selected ingredients, we do not make a traditional, loaf-style food. Instead, we hand fill all of our canned foods so that you can see the quality of our hand pulled meats and fresh caught fish right when you open a can of Against the Grain pet foods, instead of “mystery meat.”
Our mission is to improve the health and quality of life of our companion pets through the development of the safest, most nutritious, and palatable pet products available. We believe that our high quality products should not only sustain our companion pets, but our emphasis on palatability also increases their enjoyment of life—like you and I.
Instead of conforming to all other pet food companies’ traditions of making foods, who use a top-down approach when creating pet food, Against the Grain started with a bottom-up approach. We first asked, “What is the best pet food that can be made, then how do we make it.” The end result offers the smartest choice for a healthy and happy pet. All of our foods are minimally processed, and all processing methods are designed to ensure that the integrity of the proteins, vitamins, and natural enzymes are maintained.
Against the Grain uses all fresh ingredients, and has designed all foods to be grain-free and gluten-free. We NEVER use corn, wheat, or soy. We have taken steps to use sustainable and green resources; our fresh-caught fish-based cat canned foods are dolphin-safe and turtle-safe. Our meat products are all GMO and anti-biotic free. Finally, we use the maximum amount of recyclable materials in our retail packaging, and use strictly skylights in our manufacturing plant. We love making these products for you, and thank you for seeking out our foods for your beloved companions.
Now that you know bout them and their story. I can tell you my Harley and Kitty Girl loved the food. They have different varieties. Kitty Girl’s favorite was the Tuna Aubergine with snapper and eggplant. Harley’s favorite is the 100% pork dog food.
Why We Started Against The Grain.
After realizing that 99% of pet foods in the market are all of the same type, which is: an inferior manufacturing process, non-unique ingredients, and designed to be cost-effective where pet nutrition is not the number one priority. So we started Against the Grain, and we do exactly as our name suggests: make food that is second to none, and completely unique, revolutionary, evolutionary, nutritious, and wholesome. We first came up with what would be required to make the BEST bio-available pet food available, then developed the manufacturing to make the best pet food cost-effective. The criterion for our pet foods is:
- Nutritionally superior food using only whole, fresh, non-processed ingredients
- Ensuring all nutrition is biologically available
- Ensure that maximum palatability for the culinary pleasures and increased quality of life of our companion pets.
We are a family-owned and operated company, and truly consider our pets a part of our family. We would do anything to ensure the life, health, and happiness of our family, and therefore have created a pet food that is of the quality our pets need.
Why We’re Different.
Against the Grain pet foods is undisputedly comprised of the highest quality products available, in which no other company can compare. Our hand-shredded canned foods let you see our high standards once the can is open. Our evolutionary semi-moist dehyrdrated food is uniquely manufactured to give you the convenience of a dry kibble, but the nutritional benefits of preparing a raw diet. We have taken a totally unique approach with how we have designed our products.
Unlike 95% of other brands, Against the Grain owns its own manufacturing facility and produces its own products. This gives us accessibility and the ability to create totally unique and innovative products. Our manufacturing plant adheres to the highest standards of preserving our natural resources. For example, the use of natural light (skylights) is dominant throughout our plant, we have the maximum amount of recyclable materials in our retail packaging, all packaging materials are recycled, our water is supplied by our own on-site well, resulting in our conscious efforts to be socially and economically responsible.
Meat Based. Not Carbohydrate Based.
Against the Grain is meat-dominant, using at least 85% real meat, and includes only the freshest, whole, unprocessed meats, fruits, and vegetables. We never use meals, dehydrated, or rendered ingredients.
Zero To Minimal Preservatives.
Of course, there are ZERO preservatives in our unique hand-made canned foods. We simply use fresh meat, fish, and fruits and vegetables to serve your pets the most optimal nutrition possible.
Furthermore, all ingredients are minimally processed. Our canned foods are packed by hand using whole meats, fish, fruits, and vegetables, then slow cooked to create a delectable dinner simmered in gravy.
