Stella & Chewy’s has always made food safety our #1 priority and we’ve gone above and beyond to receive SQF Food Safety Certification. We continue to use the world’s finest and safest ingredients, along with responsibly sourced proteins from farmers and ranchers we know and trust who believe in the humane treatment of their animals. We’re proud to make all of our frozen and freeze-dried raw foods and baked kibble diets in our very own Wisconsin kitchen. We’ve always had a unique food safety procedure in place, including a high-pressure processing (HPP) step, to guarantee the safety of our raw products, in addition to sending every batch to be tested for Salmonella, E.coli and Listeria. Stella & Chewy’s remains committed to food safety and making sure pet parents feel confident bringing our product home to help their pet thrive.
