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.

    of the produce we buy is non-genetically modified

  • 97%

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, roasting and dehydrating. Which means our foods are:

  • Minimally processed to hold onto important nutrients.
  • Made with finely ground whole food ingredients to ease digestion.
  • Far more appealing to pets because they retain the colors and aromas of their natural ingredients.
  • Dehydrated Foods

    Our time-honored and original technique for preserving the quality of our food.

  • Whole Food Clusters

    Our MADEHONEST™ process brings new convenience to 100% human grade.
