No ifs or buts. ZiwiPeak either meets or exceeds all relevant global regulatory and industry standards with certification.
The highest product standards
Our products are fully natural. They’re carefully formulated for all life stages and all breeds by leading pet nutritionists. They comply fully with the highest global industry regulations and requirements (AAFCO – Association of American Feed Control Officials; USFDA; and EU) as nutritious pet-food diets for cats and dogs.
Trusted and traceable sources
We talk about this a lot because it matters. All ZiwiPeak pet food, lamb, venison, beef and rabbit products are sourced from New Zealand animals and approved, traceable New Zealand farms. The farms are committed to freely pastured grass-feeding. They use no antibiotics, hormones or growth promotants. No ingredients are sourced from feedlots. We only use real raw meat and organs. There are no fillers, grains, potatoes and no added sugars, salt or glycerines. Our seafood is sourced under strict government-managed sustainable systems.
Human-grade licensed export facilities
We obtain our ingredients with the greatest care from facilities operating and monitored within the highest possible standards. We work only with licensed human-grade meat and seafood – fish and green-lipped mussel – export facilities in New Zealand. And all our air-dried food’s produced in our own New Zealand factory.
This helps a great deal. New Zealand prides itself on very strict biosecurity controls and laws ensuring livestock in the country remains disease free. (If you’ve visited us, you’ll have experienced these controls in action.) It means our meat and organs are derived from disease-free animals, requiring no disease-management interventions.
