How is FRESCO Dry RAW made?
The production process of our FRESCO Dry RAW. differs from all conventional "premium" dry foods available in the UK market. Instead of extruding the ingredients under high pressure and high temperatures (pressure cooker), we simply dry in an elaborate and gentle air & freeze drying process.
For the production of our Dry RAW range we use on average 4kg or fresh raw material which results in 1kg of finished product. As we remove nearly all of the moisture content from the fresh material its results in a hard & crunchy texture.

Why chose FRESCO Dry RAW?
Your dog is not only harmed by environmental influences, but also increasingly by the ingredients in their daily food. The preservatives, additives and chemical residues often contained within conventional dog food brands can be jointly responsible for diseases such as tumours, kidney and liver damage, impairments in the musculoskeletal system, fertility disorders and allergies. We have therefore decided not to use any additives within our FRESCO Dry RAW diets or across any products which we manufacture and sell.
General supermarket dog food is made from inferior raw materials, mainly cereals, bone meal and fats. Often, only a very small amount of fresh meat is contained within the food, instead meat flours are processed and often declared as dried meat. In comparison, FRESCO Dry RAW relies exclusively on natural ingredients. In our food you will only find fresh meat, bones and offal, vegetables, fruit and selected oils.

Let's explore these ingredients in more detail...
Chicken heart mainly consists of muscles, i.e. meat. It is very high in protein and contains hardly any fat. It provides high quality Biotin and Potassium.
Chicken stomach is particularly valuable ingredients within your dog's diet as already contains pre-digested grain residues. The bacteria in the chicken stomach has already unlocked and converted into high-quality protein. It has an important beneficial effect on your dog's digestion system.
Pumpkin is a real superfood due to its nutrient and fibre richness. In addition to it's important fibre, Pumpkin also offer high levels of Vitamins A, C, E, Magnesium, Pantothenic acid, Potassium, Zinc while also acting as a natural high-quality supply of vegetable protein.
A natural diet for dogs must contain a source of calcium, dogs rely on this to help build and maintain a healthy frame structure. We include Chicken Carcasses within this diet to help offer a natural supply of calcium while also including high levels of valuable fatty acids and enzymes.
Jerusalem Artichoke has an optimal ratio of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, phosphate, potassium and sodium. Also commonly known as "Topinambur" it can also nourishes useful bacteria in the intestine. These are important for building a healthy intestinal flora in the dog's digestive system.
Our local farmers hand pick each apple then gently cleans with fresh water before we add to our mix. Apples offer a variety of benefits as they contain Pectin, Vitamin C, Potassium, Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron and Sodium
Linseed is included within this meal as it is an important supplier of Vitamin E, linoleic and alpha-linoleic acid as well as essential fatty acids.
We add a small dash of salmon oil into this recipe as it offers a natural addition of essential fatty acids while also offering a balanced Omega 3 to Omega 6 ration.
Brewer's yeast provides your dog with B Vitamins, valuable amino acids and trace elements such as biotin, folic acid, iron and zinc. The ingredients have good bioavailability and can therefore be ideally absorbed and used. Brewer's yeast
promotes cell regeneration.
The rosehip is a true superfood supplement and particularly rich in important nutrients such as Vitamins A, E, K, B1, B2, B3, B6 and especially Vitamin C, as well as pectins and tannins.

In addition to vegetable protein, pollen also contains vitamins, amino acids, hormones, enzymes and fats are also unlocked within this ingredients. The small power packs also contain antibiotic properties. They also contain antihistamines and antioxidants to help strengthen your dog's the immune system.
How much do I feed my dog per day?
Adult dogs 16kg to 30kg: approx
1% of body weight
Adult dogs 30kg+: approx
0.8-1%% of body weight
(up to approx. 15 kg): approx. 1-1.5% of the body weight
Puppies upto 8 months: approx
2-3% of the current body weight
Daily feeding guide chart
|Puppy Weight||Daily feed Amount*|
The % figure relates to the body weight of your dog.
Example: A puppy with a weight of 5kg and a recommended daily feed quantity of 2-3% would require 100-150g of food per day.
Our Dry RAW Puppy/Junior Menu Chicken contains approx. 453 kcal / 100g. The above values are guidelines for the amount of food for normally active, not neutered healthy dogs. However, individual needs may differ by up to 50% from the calculated values due to age, breed or activity. These are only starting points for the estimation of the daily amount of feed.
Storage & Feeding: Once opened we recommend using all of the bag's contents within 8 weeks, this is to ensure the highest nutritional value of the ingredients as we do not use any synthetic preservatives within the food. To store, simply seal the foil packaging with it's zip lock feature and keep in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight.
How to transition from your current dog food onto FRESCO...
You can easily transition your dog one of two ways depending on your dog's acceptance to new foods within their diet. There is no set rule as every dog is different, we do however favour a straight swap technique for effortless transitioning.
- Skip a meal (preferably an evening feed) and simple serve our FRESCO food the next morning
- Feed a single protein, one they are most comfortable with and have eaten previously. Feed this protein for a 14 day period so their internal digestive system can adapt to their new food
Add new proteins, After 14 days simply start introducing new proteins into their diet, we recommend a minimum of 3 proteins. Alternate these proteins throughout the month to create a varied balanced diet.
How to serve:
Simply pour your desired amount based on your dogs age,weight and activity levels.
Note: There is no need to add water directly to Dry RAW food to hydrate, instead you simply fill their water bowl as normal.
How to store…
Store FRESCO Dry RAW away from direct sunlight, heat and moisture. Once opened bags can be easily closed again thanks to the pressure seal and foil lined packaging thus making the food use-able for up to 8 weeks from day of opening.
* Important: Of our energy-rich dry food, which does not contain any fillers such as grain, rice, potatoes etc., your dog only needs about half as much as from another extruded premium dog food (Royal Canin, James Wellbeloved, Eukanuba etc.).
Therefore, it is perfectly normal for your dogs stoles to be only half of what they would be on a standard kibble diet as the our FRESCO Dry RAW is perfectly balanced for your dogs digestive system resulting in more goodness being consumed into your dogs body reducing the amount of food simply passing through their digestive system.
