WE MAKE OUR AWARD-WINNING AND BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE™ FOODS FROM FRESH REGIONAL INGREDIENTS.
Unmatched by any other dog or cat food, ORIJEN’s fresh regional ingredients rival Mother Nature, supplying nutrients in their freshest, most natural and nourishing form.
Our DogStar® Kitchens are located in the heart of Kentucky’s dynamic agricultural community where fertile farmlands, rolling grasslands, and Appalachian ranches provide inspiration for our foods and access to fresh ingredients through specialty farmers with whom we partner. Responsibly farmed, ranched or fished by people we know and trust, our fresh local ingredients are delivered to our kitchens daily. In fact, our fresh meats are deemed fit for human consumption and typically travel from farm to kitchen within 3 days, and into ORIJEN foods within 2 days.
