Nourish as Nature Intended
Inspired by a natural diet of whole prey animals, ORIJEN features unmatched and unique inclusions of meat, naturally providing everything your dog or cat needs to thrive. With a reputation of trust spanning more than a decade, ORIJEN is guaranteed to give you peace-of-mind and keep your cherished companion happy, healthy and strong.
Our Biologically Appropriate™ philosophy is simple: mirror the quantity, freshness, and variety of meats that dogs and cats are evolved to eat.
Fresh Regional Ingredients
Unmatched by any other dog or cat food, ORIJEN’s fresh regional ingredients rival Mother Nature, supplying nutrients in their freshest, most natural and nourishing form.
Our DogStar® kitchens are located in the heart of Kentucky’s dynamic agricultural community where fertile farmlands, rolling grasslands, and Appalachian ranches provide inspiration for our foods and access to fresh ingredients through specialty farmers with whom we partner.
Responsibly farmed, ranched or fished by people we know and trust, our fresh local ingredients are delivered to our kitchens daily.
In fact, our fresh meats are deemed fit for human consumption and typically travel from farm to kitchen within 3 days, and into ORIJEN foods within 2 days.
The food you choose for your dog or cat is one of the most important decisions you can make. We’re proud of our reputation, passion about our foods, and dedicated to the highest standards of authenticity, nutritional integrity and food safety.
That’s why we prepare ORIJEN in our own kitchens, where we handle every detail from food development to ingredient sourcing, ensuring our stringent food safety processes are upheld. Our kitchens meet the strictest standards, including the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA), the Government of Canada, and the European Union (EU).
Our DogStar® kitchens prepare ORIJEN and ACANA exclusively — we don’t make foods for other companies and we don’t allow our foods to be made by anyone else. We wouldn’t have it any other way and believe you wouldn’t either.
