Tom says, “we didn’t want to create a company just to be in the pet space. I wanted to create a company that really affected the lives of people and the animals inside the home through great fresh nutrition. And I knew if we could do that brick by brick, by bringing amazing, fresh nutrition both in fresh meals that we cook here in our kitchens, or our freeze-dried raw, or our organ treats. If we brought great nutrition to these animals who give us nothing but love and care for us all the time, then I knew we could make the household actually a better house, a better environment because people are living a healthier life.”
