"The next generation of all natural pet food and supplies"

Champion Tour

Champion Tour

In July, we were invited to tour the Champion Dog Star Kitchens in Auburn, Kentucky.  It was a wonderful opportunity to get an inside view of America's most trusted pet food.  We were blown away by the cleanliness of every part of the tour - due to their daily 4 hour clean cycle, plus a "clean-in-place" philosophy.  Every step of the way, food is monitored, sampled, and tested to ensure the highest quality.  The entire facility is temperature and humidity controlled, including all deliveries - vacuum trucks are first pumped with the air from inside the kitchens so EVERY ingredient is maintained in the same quality environment.  Champion's dedication to providing the BEST pet nutrition - biologically appropriate, fresh regional ingredients that are never outsourced - is extremely evident in every area of manufacturing.  Their employees are passionate, knowledgeable, and most important.... HAPPY!  Champion has created hundreds of jobs, boosting the local economy - from kitchen workers, to fisherman & farmers, to pallet builders - the entire community has warmly welcomed a Canadian company that feeds pets in over 83 countries.  We can't wait to go back!
