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.
