The Northwest Naturals mission is to provide pet-lovers the option of feeding their pets a health-enhancing, life-prolonging and easy-to-feed food. Our products are carefully formulated based upon the most advanced science and principles of raw food diet preparation. Northwest Natural's believes in the premise that BARF (Biologically Appropriate Raw Food) improves the quality of life for pets. Their mission is to play an active role in the development of healthy companions, regardless of size or activity level.
Northwest Naturals is proudly owned by Morasch Meats in Portland, Oregon. Morasch Meats has been a family run business since 1956, specializing in meat processing products for restaurants, grocery stores, and independent retailers. The Morasch Meats facility officially became a USDA inspected and certified facility in 1980, and soon after, they were asked to produce a private-label pet food under the strict guideline of a USDA facility. For the past 20 years, Morasch Meats has been a leader in developing unique and high quality products for the pet industry. In addition to the 85,000 square foot primary facility, Morasch Meats proudly acquired an additional 90,000 square foot facility where High Pressure Processing and Freeze Drying for both human and pet products takes place. Morasch Meats has been on the cutting edge of advanced food processing technologies and will continue to be so, well into the future.
In 2004, Morasch Meats founded Northwest Naturals as their own brand of raw frozen pet food.
