About Us

World leading pet nutrition ...

Orijen Petfoods NZ is a company dedicated to the welfare of much loved pets, show-dogs and breeders of New Zealand – 'For the love of dogs ...'   In 2007 we were so amazed at our investigation into Pet Food in general and the quality of options available in New Zealand that we sought out the highest end, most premium pet-food available in the world and moved to quickly ensure it became available in Godzone as soon as possible.

Orijen is literally one of the best if not THE best dried, kibbled petfood available on the planet. We felt it was essential that it became available to the New Zealand pet owning public.

As you will read on our site, Orijen has the highest protein levels and is the ONLY complete range of dried kibble available in NZ that contain no grains whatsoever.

Orijen is manufactured by Champion Petfoods in Canada. A family owned business with over 30 years in the pet food industry. They use no imported products, are nutrition focused and have a mission statement that is clear and concise.
