ANSWERSTM PET FOOD Vision Statement:
To reinvent how dog and cat owners think about, approach and meet their pets nutrition requirements and health care needs supported by science, practices, social and environmentally conscience principles to improve the probability that not only will our pets live longer, happier and healthier lives, but that the current world’s population will leave a more peaceful, better educated and cleaner planet to future generations and their loved pets.
ANSWERSTM PET FOOD Mission Statement:
To realize our vision, ANSWERSTM PET FOOD’s mission is to be more than a pet food manufacturing company, but rather an ethical, social and environmentally conscience and best practices based movement in the raw pet food industry always practicing what we preach by:
  Taking a lead role in pet nutrition and health care discussions
  Contributing time and effort in educating and sharing documented knowledge
  Participating in and contributing resources to ongoing scientific research
  Utilizing green recyclable and/or biodegradable packaging
  Purchasing sourcing from facilities that practice humane handling of livestock raised in non-confinement facilities that have a Global Animal Partnership (GAP) rating
  Using no genetically modified foods where quality of the end product is the objective and always the first priority

ANSWERSTM Pet Food company consists of individuals with 50+ combined years of experience in the raw pet food industry.

Along with this experience, we have a food scientist who oversees formulation, sourcing, quality assurance, and control. We take measures to the finest detail to ensure our products are superior and above standards.

We feel we have the best product on the market, but we need to acknowledge the people we work with daily, for without them the link is broken.

This includes our distributors, their representatives, and the retailers. They are our eyes and ears in the field, helping us to educate owners, address questions, work towards solutions, strive to keep the customers happy, and, our ultimate goal, keep pets healthy!

We pledge to be a company always committed to the independent pet industry.

We also appreciate and support organizations who care for homeless pets and customers who turn to us for their pets nutritional needs.
