If you don't add preservatives to your food, why does it have a long shelf life?

We prepare the raw ingredients (fish, turkey etc.) for our food with rosemary oil. Rosemary oil contains carbolic acid which has antioxidant properties and acts as a natural preservative. It is extremely effective at preventing the oxidation of fats which would normally cause rancidity. This means our food has a long shelf life.

Technically we are not allowed to say Tippaws is 100% natural because we have added vitamins and minerals to it.

Is Tippaws food packaging recyclable?

We are launching fully recyclable packaging for our food in March 2024. Our current food packaging is not yet recyclable at home with domestic waste unfortunately. However, we have a partnership with Terracycle where we send them used packaging to recycle. If you would like us to recycle your bags, please email this and we will arrange for them to be collected.

Visit our Sustainability page for more information.

How can you claim your food is highly palatable?

A number of tests have been performed in a controlled environment, where 20 cats try both Tippaws food and another leading dry food. The test was carried out against multiple leading dry foods and in all tests, Tippaws food was chosen more than the other food.
