Our ORIJEN® Ingredients

ORIJEN pet food is made from only the finest ingredients, and every step of formulating each diet is monitored and controlled from start to finish. Our ingredients are selected to be nutritious and nourishing, so your pet thrives.

WHAT DOES FRESH OR RAW MEAN?

Every bag of ORIJEN food is packed with fresh or raw ingredients to ensure the highest nutritional value and flavor, requiring less supplementation in our diets.

Fresh: Our fresh ingredients use refrigeration as the sole method of preservation.

Raw: Our raw ingredients are frozen at the peak of freshness to preserve nutrients.

Fact: We have over 25,000 square feet of cold storage in our Kentucky Kitchen to house our fresh and frozen ingredients before they are batched into ORIJEN kibble.
