The biggest trend in pet food the past couple of years has been the rise of natural, healthier foods _more meat that pets need, fewer fillers and artificial ingredients that they don’t. But until recently, many of these ultra-premium pet foods came from newer, smaller, sometimes untested companies, and were often hard to find in your favorite stores.
That’s why we are happy to announce we’re now carrying a new, natural pet food, from a company you probably already know and trust: Purina.
The longtime pet food leader has just introduced Purina One Beyond, a high-quality dry kibble that has no fillers and no artificial preservatives.
The first ingredient? Real meat. (That means no meat byproducts.) Each recipe also includes vitamins, minerals, whole grains, and fruits and vegetables, like spinach, carrots and apples, to provide all-natural nutrients to keep your pet their healthiest.
There are two adult dog flavors, one with chicken and whole oatmeal, and the other with lamb and whole barley. Purina One Beyond also offers two recipes for adult cats: salmon and whole brown rice, and chicken and whole oatmeal.
Beyond the emphasis on good nutrition, Purina is committed to sustainability with this new product. The manufacturing facilities are committed to responsible processes; the Denver facility, for instance, uses some solar power. The pet food comes in packages made from 92 percent renewable materials, printed entirely with vegetable-based soy inks, which are also more renewable than other inks.
The brand has also made a commitment to help homeless or abandoned pets. Last year, the Purina ONE brand donated more than a million pounds of food to U.S. animal shelters.
Purina One Beyond is a natural extension of the Purina One line, which includes more than a dozen canned foods, dry formulas and treats for dogs, and several other dry food recipes for cats. Look in the pet-food aisle of your neighborhood store to see which one might best suit the four-legged members of your family.
