ZIWI Peak Pet Food: A History of Quality and Innovation:

ZIWI was founded in New Zealand in 2002. The brand's founder Peter Mitchell, a passionate free-range deer farmer, was supplying other global pet food companies with high-grade New Zealand meat.

However, Peter's frustration grew as he discovered that various pet food companies were manufacturing highly processed pet kibble by blending these raw ingredients with cheap fillers.

Our Dogs and Cats Deserve Better:

Peter's love of his own two dogs provided him with a mission to provide pets with the best possible nutrition using only natural, whole-food ingredients free from fillers and artificial binders.

Hence, after a two-year journey of trial and error, ZIWI Peak was born. A nutritious raw diet for dogs and cats with the safe convenience of ready-to-serve dry foods. Just scoop and serve.

Since then, the ZIWI brand has grown into a global leader in pet food, with a commitment to quality and innovation that remains as strong as ever.

ZIWI Peak Pet Food is made in small batches, using a slow, gentle cooking process that helps retain the natural nutrients and flavour of the ingredients.

ZIWI provides only good nutrition for your dog or cat with no compromise.
