The Dog Grocer sources human grade chicken from local startup companies that redistribute unsold food to restaurants and caterers. These meats are often unsold because these suppliers are overstocked or the parts are “ugly” – they fall short of cosmetic requirements that are very superficial, such as imperfect cuts of the whole breast, wrong sizing, or minor labeling errors etc. However, these meats are equally nutritious and perfectly fit for human consumption. Singapore wastes about 800,000 tonnes of food every year and by sourcing from these startup initiatives, TDG helps reduce food waste, in line with our vision of adopting a sustainable practice.
These human grade meats are great for both raw feeding and dogs on homecooked meals. Bone grinds are ideal for dogs or cats who are not able to gnaw on bones or are gulpers.
Thoughtfully processed into smaller portions but made easily separable, the grinds are convenient for feeding while ensuring minimal food and packaging wastage. All frozen meats are packaged in food grade home compostable packaging. Packed into 1kg bags of small 25g balls for convenient portioning and feeding, according to dietary requirements of individual pets. For pets on varied protein diets, small portions allow convenient mixing of protein types.
