OUR RECIPE FOR SUCCESS —

THE HONEST KITCHEN STARTED WITH A SIMPLE QUESTION. “WHY?”

Our founder, Lucy Postins, asked, “Why is my dog having skin problems and ear infections—could it be his diet?”

And that “why” led to others:

• Why are quality standards for pet food so much lower than for people food?
• Why do companies say “natural ingredients” but refuse to share their sources?
• Why are most popular pet foods so heavily processed?

The unsatisfying answers to these questions (and more) led us to create far better options. Over 20 years, we’ve crafted a full line of human grade foods that are far safer, healthier and more delicious than most mass-produced brands.

OUR FOUNDING FOODIE

In 2002, when Lucy Postins started whipping up healthy, homemade people food for her dog Mosi, she had no idea it was a recipe for a company.
