At the heart of what ZIWI does is their hands-on, artisanal approach to air-drying; a modern and refined twist on the centuries-old technique of naturally preserving meats. This slow, gentle, twin-stage process eliminates pathogenic bacteria, such as salmonella and listeria, while protecting the nutrients in our ingredients. Our air-dried recipes include ingredients that are naturally binding when blended; ZIWI does not use glycerin, yield enhancers, artificial gelling agents, fillers, or sweeteners in our recipes.
Our air-dried recipes are 96% meat, organs and bone, including 3% New Zealand Green Mussel for natural glucosamine and chondroitin, and 7% species-specific tripe for added palatability and digestive benefits.
All ZIWI recipes are complete and balanced for all breeds and life stages. They are high in natural protein and kilocalories, packing more power than raw food and kibble, so you feed smaller quantities per day!
Not only do you feed less, you can feel good about not including grains, potatoes, corn, wheat, soy, sugars and glycerins in your dog’s diet. For the perfect finishing touch, we add kelp as a natural vitamin and mineral source, and New Zealand green mussel for natural glucosamine and chondroitin to all our air dried dog food.
