New Stews and Pate Recipes Combine Healthy Pet Meals with Recyclable and Sustainable Packaging

There’s a definite chill in the air, and that gets people thinking about warm and tasty soups, stews and classic Sunday dinners. Besides warming up during the cooler months, hearty meals are an important way of connecting with our loved ones.

As a registered dietitian and pet nutritionist, I advocate for healthy and balanced meals using nutrient-rich ingredients. However, the way we prepare our meals for our families, including our pets, is equally important. Washing hands, storing food properly and cooking food at the right temperature to ensure harmful bacteria is killed are all very important steps in meal preparation. That’s why I am very excited about NOW FRESH stews and pâtés from Petcurean, a family-owned pet food company based in Chilliwack, BC.

First, it’s all about the ingredients. In addition to providing rich, hearty meals for dogs and cats, NOW FRESH is made with 100% fresh wild salmon, turkey and pork. The recipes use ingredients that are healthy for our whole families, pets and humans alike – 100% fresh potatoes, carrots, peas, cranberries, sweet potatoes, flaxseed and apples, which are excellent sources of antioxidants, essential vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre. All of the recipes are free from grain, gluten, wheat, corn, beef, chicken and soy. Also, they do not contain any rendered meat, byproducts, added growth hormones or artificial preservatives.

Second, NOW FRESH stews and pâtés are packaged in Tetra Pak cartons. By cooking the food directly in the cartons, cross contamination is prevented and naturally occurring pathogens are eliminated. This cooking method also improves digestibility and nutrient availability.

Last, but definitely not least, Tetra Pak cartons are 100 percent recyclable, BPA free and made from 65 percent renewable materials. They also use fewer raw materials and are more compact to ship than cans, further lessening the impact on the environment.
