How is FRESCO Dry RAW made?
The production process of our FRESCO Dry RAW. differs from all conventional "premium" dry foods available in the UK market. Instead of extruding the ingredients under high pressure and high temperatures (pressure cooker), we simply dry in an elaborate and gentle air & freeze-drying process.
For the production of our Dry RAW range, we use on average 4kg or fresh raw material which results in 1kg of the finished product. As we remove nearly all of the moisture content from the fresh material its results in a hard & crunchy texture.

Why chose FRESCO Dry RAW?
Your dog is not only harmed by environmental influences but also increasingly by the ingredients in their daily food. The preservatives, additives and chemical residues often contained within conventional dog food brands can be jointly responsible for diseases such as tumours, kidney and liver damage, impairments in the musculoskeletal system, fertility disorders and allergies. We have therefore decided not to use any additives within our FRESCO Dry RAW diets or across any products which we manufacture and sell.
General supermarket dog food is made from inferior raw materials, mainly cereals, bone meal and fats. Often, only a very small amount of fresh meat is contained within the food, instead, meat flours are processed and often declared as dried meat. In comparison, FRESCO Dry RAW relies exclusively on natural ingredients. In our food, you will only find fresh meat, bones and offal, vegetables, fruit and selected oils.

Let's explore these ingredients in more detail...
Your dog requires proteins to build up and maintain organs, muscles and the functionality of enzymes. Meat is a good source of protein because it contains all the essential amino acids in the right ratio to each other and therefore has a high biological value. Meat also contains iron, zinc, selenium and B vitamins.
Lamb Heart mainly consists of muscles, i.e. meat. It is very high in protein and contains hardly any fat. It provides high-quality Biotin and Potassium.
Lamb's lung is included within this diet as it is naturally high in protein plus containing a source of sodium, vitamin B12 and biotin.
A natural diet for dogs must contain a source of calcium, dogs rely on this to help build and maintain a healthy frame structure. We include Lamb Breast bone within this food to help offer a natural supply of calcium while also including high levels of valuable fatty acids and enzymes.
Courgette, which is also commonly known as Zucchini, has only a few calories and a high Vitamin C content. This strengthens the immune system and protects against many diseases. It also contains important fibre.
We source our carrots directly from the farmer, we include both of these vegetables as they contain many vitamins and minerals (especially potassium). They also contain saponins and flavonoids, which have an appetizing and digestive effect.
Our local farmers handpick each apple then gently cleans with fresh water before we add to our mix. Apples offer a variety of benefits as they contain Pectin, Vitamin C, Potassium, Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron and Sodium
Jerusalem Artichoke has an optimal ratio of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, phosphate, potassium and sodium. Also commonly known as "Topinambur" it can nourish useful bacteria in the intestine. These are important for building a healthy intestinal flora in the dog's digestive system.
The lactic acid bacteria contained in lean yoghurt have a beneficial effect on the intestinal flora.
The fennel is a vegetable which has only 19 calories at 100g. It contains important essential oils that have anti-inflammatory and digestive effects. It also has a high proportion of Potassium, iron, Beta-carotene and B Vitamins.
Linseed is included within this meal as it is an important supplier of Vitamin E, linoleic and alpha-linoleic acid as well as essential fatty acids.
We add a small dash of salmon oil into this recipe as it offers a natural addition of essential fatty acids while also offering a balanced Omega 3 to Omega 6 ration.
The rosehip is a true superfood supplement and particularly rich in important nutrients such as Vitamins A, E, K, B1, B2, B3, B6 and especially Vitamin C, as well as pectins and tannins.
Brewer's yeast provides your dog with B Vitamins, valuable amino acids and trace elements such as biotin, folic acid, iron and zinc. The ingredients have good bioavailability and can, therefore, be ideally absorbed and used. Brewer's yeast promotes cell regeneration.
Our team of experienced fishermen gather only the finest quality Seaweed directly from the sea bed. Both ingredients offer many important suppliers minerals such as (magnesium, calcium, phosphorus and iodine).
