We manufacture using only 100% natural New Zealand ingredients that are grown and produced locally, sourced direct from the growers. We make the healthiest, tastiest, and the best pet food available for the domestic and global market. These ingredients are used exclusively in our Tu Meke Friend pet food brand.
