Hello & Welcome!
I started The Honest Kitchen in my own kitchen, back in 2002. At the time, it was just me and my beloved Rhodesian Ridgeback, Mosi, mixing up fresh ingredients and trying out recipes together.
Mosi had frequent ear infections and skin problems. I knew that improving his diet could play a big role in helping him feel better. But there was nothing on the market that offered a healthy, whole-food solution — at least nothing easy enough to prepare and store. So I decided to make it myself, using human-grade, dehydrated ingredients.
When I saw amazing results in Mosi, I realized that other pets could benefit, too. That’s when it all started evolving into a company.
Fifteen years later, we have a full line of products to meet a variety of needs for all kinds of pets. Our loyal fan base of passionate pet lovers continue to push us to create safer, healthier and higher-quality options everyday. Most recently, they asked for a 100% human-grade dry food, and we responded with Whole Food Clusters—an entirely new category of healthy food for dogs. To make them, we had to create a whole new preparation method and build a custom kitchen, but the result is amazing!
No matter how popular we become or how many products we offer, we’ll never move away from my original promise — to bring the highest quality standards of ‘people food’ to foods made for pets. It’s something we call “The Honest Difference.” It means everything to us, and once you try it, we believe it will mean everything to you and your pet.
