Ingredients are everything

Our suppliers say we're annoying to work with—

Because we've got such high standards
(& we're cool with that)

From eggs and salmon to pumpkin and parsley, we only use wholesome foods you recognize from your own kitchen. To meet our uncompromising standards, our suppliers must provide proof of food origins, screening, handling, cleaning and more. We only source from folks we know and trust, including a few we started with back in 2002. And, what we leave out is as important as what we put in.

Keeping it real

The key to retaining all the nutrients, taste and delicious aromas that come from whole food ingredients is to not remove them in the first place. At The Honest Kitchen, we ditch the heavy processing of feed grade foods in favor of a gentler approach– like cold pressing, slow roasting and dehydrating.

That goes for our new Whole Food Clusters and our dehydrated foods.

  • Minimally processed to hold onto important nutrients.
