About Raw Feeding
At Nutriment, we are wholeheartedly dedicated to raw feeding and the principles of Biologically Appropriate Raw Food (BARF). Providing a complete, nutritious raw diet, which is easily digested, is the best way to promote ideal health and happiness for your pets.
Our in-house nutritionists carefully select high-quality, raw ingredients – including meat, fish, vegetables and superfoods – which contain the essential nutrition to support the bodily functions of dogs and cats. The lack of processing ensures that our premium ingredients maintain their nutritional profile, meaning that our raw food products are packed full of protein, amino acids, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals for your pet to truly thrive.
Commercially available pet food products often contain biologically inappropriate ingredients such as grains, sugars, fillers, artificial additives and preservatives, which can all have detrimental effects on your pet’s health. Dogs and cats are not naturally designed to consume and digest these ingredients, and this may affect the absorption of what nutrition is available. Common side effects of a poor diet can include digestive discomfort, poor oral health, allergies and intolerances, poor skin and coat health and much more.
Just like humans, diet is a huge contributing factor to health and wellbeing. Raw protein-rich food is your pet’s natural diet and is first choice for optimal animal nutrition.

Meat & Fish
Our 100% human-grade quality, raw meat and fish are the primary, protein-rich ingredients in each of our recipes. We have an uncompromising approach to the meat that we use, taking into consideration ethical approaches to farming as well as ensuring that every piece of meat we source is of the highest quality. Our meats are varied and include Rabbit, Venison, Turkey, Beef, Lamb, Chicken and Salmon.
Committed to a grain-free and low carbohydrate approach to recipe formulation, our supporting, non-meat ingredients focus on nutritional benefits and qualities. Pumpkin, broccoli and kale are all recognised as being naturally rich in vitamins, minerals and fibre, which contribute to optimal pet health.
Added superfoods enhance the nutritional profile of our recipes. Sea kelp powder, bilberry powder, salmon oil and spirulina – to name a few - contain antioxidants which strengthen the immune system whilst contributing to healthy bodily functions and systems.
