MEAT | ORGANS | BONE

We mirror Mother Nature by incorporating whole meat, organs, and cartilage or bone to supply nutrients naturally, eliminating the unnecessary long lists of synthetic supplements that your dog does’t need.


100% poultry, eggs, fish, and fruits and vegetables are delivered to us raw, then gently freeze-dried in our kitchen with only natural preservatives, locking in the food’s nutritional integrity.


FREEZE-DRYING | THE ULTIMATE RAW FOODS

ORIJEN Tundra freeze-dried foods are gently freeze-dried, retaining all of the natural goodness of our quality ingredients without the addition of synthetic preservatives. Our freeze-dry kitchen is equipped with nitrogen tunnels which flash-freeze ingredients at extremely low temperatures (-55 to -70°C), locking in their vitalizing nutrients.

An 18-hour freeze-drying process gently converts the water frozen in the ingredients into ice vapour, without creating any liquid. This means only water is removed from our ingredients, leaving behind all of their goodness in a concentrated form, creating a nourishing taste experience your dog will love.
