Our Story

Founded back in 1981 as Anglian Meat Products, we began producing Biologically Appropriate Raw Foods (BARF) for pets as a small family run business in Norfolk. Initially selling a limited range of simple minced meats to breeders, we were encouraged by our customers to produce an even wider selection of meats including British Beef, Welsh Lamb, Fish from Lowestoft and lots of other Great British meats sourced from local specialists.

Today we are proud to be Europe’s leading experts on raw and raw inspired dog and cat foods, with ranges including True Instinct, Country Hunter and our Original Complete and Balanced raw meals, not to mention a traditional range of raw bones, chews, minces and chunks for those wishing to prepare their dog’s raw meals at home.
