A Look at Our Crisp & Tasty Apples from Chile

If you’ve ever wondered what your pet’s food ingredients look like before they end up in the bowl, you might like these lovely photos of our crisp and tasty apples growing in Chile.

The apple varieties we use are Fuji, Gala and Granny Smith, which all grow abundantly in Chile.

The growing region is located about two hours south of Santiago, which you might also recognize as the region where many varietals of grapes are grown for use in Chile’s famous wines. (We don’t use the grapes because they’re unfortunately an unsafe food for dogs. And also, we haven’t yet perfected the fine art of making our own wine…).

Many of the farms that grow our apples are owned by small-scale, independent family farmers that tend to quiet small orchards. They grow apples for the fresh market as well as dried apples (which are used in The Honest Kitchen’s foods, trail mixes and baked goods), frozen apples, puree and also juice.
