Raw bistro is a different kind of pet food company
At Raw Bistro, we believe in the power of the raw diet to help pets live their healthiest and happiest lives. We also care deeply about animal welfare, the environment and sustainable farming practices. To that end, we source all our ingredients from producers who share those same values, and process our food at the peak of freshness close to home in Minnesota.
While raw pet foods are certainly not the norm in this country, we firmly believe they should--and will--be. Many health issues that plague today's companion animals can be traced to poor and improper nutrition, and the differences after swtiching to a balanced, species-appropriate raw diet are nothing short of remarkable.
the raw bistro story
Like many new products, our raw entrees came into being through the “I needed something that didn’t exist” door.
Founder Patricia Greene’s dog Chase was not thriving on conventional dog food, and she was worried about him. She found raw food and that was far better - so much so that Chase began to thrive. But while good, the choices available still fell short in ways that were, to Pat, significant.
She wanted meats from animals that were humanely raised and properly fed on pasture only. She wanted nutrients, vitamins and minerals to come from the most appropriate and desirable sources, not from what was merely cheap or convenient. And she wanted recipes based on nutritional profiles developed by the most knowledgeable canine nutritionists in the field.Gathering the knowledge and putting all the pieces together took more than 2 years. It was challenging, but ultimately satisfying. Raw Bistro made its debut on the shelves of leading Minnesota retailers in 2012, and the products are now available throughout the Midwest to California at select, independent pet retailers and online.
