Back in the days we did many things we never thought of as bad. Or dangerous. Or just unwise. We smoked cigarettes. We did not wear seatbelts. We used solariums to get tanned. But we know better now. Luckily and sometimes painfully we learned a lot. Science moved on. We invented data. Got ourselves electric cars. And we slowly but surely figured out that everything is interconnected.
Now what has this got to do with dog food? Well, a lot. Back in the days we thought that dogs needed traditional meat to stay strong and healthy. We simply believed in all the marketing promises from the big pet food brands.
We are petgood, a Swedish food tech company. As so many inventions, ours was based on the problems we faced ourselves. Looking for healthy, high-quality dog food without traditional meat, we came to the stunning conclusion that this does not exist. Huh? And while thinking about it, we learnt that pets are estimated to account for around 25% of all meat consumption. Really? Light bulb moment! We can solve two challenges at the same time. The best food for our dogs, that is more sustainable at the same time. So we gave it a go. But we wanted to do things our own way.
We decided to build an inclusive brand, a movement. In which we use realtime learnings to improve our products and our business. We learn from vets and nutritionists, of course! We take science and data as the solid basis for everything we do. But equally important, we consider our customers as partners in our movement. We want to hear about their experiences, opinions, complaints, wishes and dreams. And we feed them back in our developments. So that tomorrow we know even better than today. And the day after tomorrow – ah well, you get the picture.
The bigger we grow, the better we can make a positive impact. The love for dogs and the love for our planet will be our guiding principles. That is a promise. Meaning over money. Love over greed. We hope this inspires you to join. So that together we can make a real difference. Together we are petgood. The do good pet food.
