Meatcasters!


Do you own a pet? Have you ever wondered about where their food comes from and how it’s made? We dive into the pet food world this week with David Rizzo from Zuke’s Dog Treats! I work on human food for a living yet have always had so many questions the pet food industry.  Where does the meat come from? What does product research and testing look like? What kind of nutritional needs do dogs have vs. humans? Thankfully, I found the perfect person to answer all those questions. David has been with Zuke’s since its inception as their director of operations and sustainability. We get into the impact of pet food on our environment and talk about our shared partnership with the Savory Institute. It’s a fascinating conversation for any and all pet lovers and also features our first ever canine “Rank Your Meats”!

 


For this week’s INSIDE EPIC we head back to Paleo f(x) and share an interview we recorded live with Angela from Tribali Foods. Tribali makes frozen meat patties and share our values in terms of sourcing grass-fed ruminants and free-range poultry. Interestingly enough, like our founders Katie and Taylor, Angela also formerly ate a vegan diet, even while her dad owned a chain of hamburger restaurants. Quite a bit to unpack there!


Finally, we talk about two awesome new blog articles written by our brand journalist Liz (link to them below!) and, in honor of Father’s Day, we want to know….Uncle Phil or Carl Winslow? Let us know in the Instagram comments!
