DogStar Kitchens

A BRIGHT STAR IN THE GLOBAL PET FOOD INDUSTRY

As the brightest star in the earth’s sky, and known in ancient cultures as ‘heavenly wolf’, the Dog Star represents steadfastness of purpose, symbolizing our commitment to food innovation and earning the trust of pet lovers everywhere.

Purpose-built from the ground up, our state-of-the-art Kentucky DogStar kitchens dramatically enhance our Fresh Regional Ingredient and Biologically Appropriate capabilities, demonstrating our passion for innovation and leadership at every level.

Situated on 85 acres of farmland in Kentucky and designed to make the best and safest dog and cat foods on earth, our DogStar kitchens utilize track and trace capabilities to follow and record ingredients throughout the kitchens at every location of use, storing the information in a two-dimensional package code which can be traced back to an individual supplier.

And to pet lovers who celebrate authenticity, our DogStar kitchens will prepare ACANA and ORIJEN exclusively; no other brands, no private label.

We wouldn’t have it any other way. We believe you wouldn’t either.

The Best Kitchens Anywhere

Purpose-built, from the ground up, to advance our Biologically Appropriate, Fresh Regional Ingredient and Never Outsourced mission, our DogStar kitchens are dedicated to pet lovers everywhere. Six principals guided our two year state-of-the-art DogStar kitchen build:

  • ADVANCE OUR BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE MISSION

    From freeze dryers to infusion systems, custom-fit and purpose build every aspect of our DogStar kitchens to enhance our Biologically Appropriate capabilities.
  • PARTNER WITH A DYNAMIC AGRICULTURAL COMMUNITY

    Partner with a dynamic agricultural community and design our kitchens to materially advance our Fresh Regional Ingredient mandate.
  • NO OUTSOURCING

    Uphold our commitment to Never Outsource by designing and preparing all of our foods and treats ourselves while increasing local ingredient content for farm to bowl integrity.
  • EARN TRUST

    Dedicated to earning the trust of pet lovers everywhere, we built our DogStar kitchens to reach beyond pet food standards or, for that matter, beyond any other pet food maker on earth.
  • NATURAL FIT

    Integrate into our new community, build our kitchens in the countryside, amongst the trees, integrated into the farmland, far away from any industrial parks.
  • BUILD THE BEST, NOT THE BIGGEST

    Assemble a team of designers, engineers and experts from all the earth’s corners and unite them with a single purpose; create the world’s best kitchens, the DogStar.
