Merrick
Merrick started over 30 years ago in founder Garth Merrick’s family kitchen in Hereford, Texas. He wanted to make sure his beloved pup Gracie was getting the most wholesome and nutritious food possible, and so he began cooking her meals at home.

Today, Merrick has expanded beyond Garth’s kitchen, but not his principles. They only use high-quality meats, fresh-caught fish, and real fruits and vegetables that aren’t only delicious, but are rich in the valuable protein and nutrients pets need. They buy directly from farmers and ranchers that they know and trust, and have the highest commitment to both freshness and safety, ensuring that their ingredients make the fewest stops between farm and bowl.

Merrick’s commitment to quality doesn’t stop at the ingredients! All of their manufacturing facilities meet strict FDA guidelines, their kitchen is a Safe Quality Food (SQF) Level 3 facility, and they continue to enhance their safety performance by partnering with safety organizations to keep them accountable. They also test their recipes multiple times throughout the entire process to ensure they exceed food and safety standards.

Whether it’s their commitment to quality, giving back to pets in need, or their palatability, you can feel good about feeding Merrick to your cat or dog!
