About Buddy's Kitchen

In October 2011, Buddy’s Kitchen introduced a line of Fresh Food for pets, and since then, we have seen huge interest from pet parents seeking out this type of thaw-and-serve product. 

Buddy’s Kitchen identifies itself as a manufacturer of ‘food for pets’ - not pet food. Buddy’s Fresh Food is a next-in-class diet that combines artisan cooking of fresh, local ingredients with modern science. Our objective is to raise the bar from conventional, hyper-processed pet foods.

Our fresh recipes always start with pure cuts of human-grade chicken, beef or salmon that have been sourced here in Canada. Unlike conventional kibbles, our fresh recipes contain no grain, corn, wheat or soy, no harsh preservatives and no animal by-products. Buddy’s Kitchen made a strategic decision that the food we produce is human consumable – “If we can't eat it, we don't feed it.”

Trust is not simply granted. It needs to be earned. Therefore “show it, don’t tell it” is at the heart of what we do at Buddy’s Kitchen. In an industry with too much ‘telling’ and not enough ‘showing’, our fresh food is manufactured in a modern production kitchen. The open concept architecture is uniquely designed to provide transparency, and allow people visiting to see our production during tours of the facility. Honesty is a key ingredient to what makes us so unique.

We understand a pet parents trust is bestowed on us to create a safe, healthy, and delicious product, and this is a responsibility we don't take lightly. Here at Buddy's Kitchen, our motto is: Your Pet. Our Family.
