Let's explore these ingredients in more detail...
The Hermetia Illucens, also known as the black soldier fly, provides your dog with high-quality protein that provides your dog with energy and is important for building and maintaining organs and muscles. The insect tastes tasty and nutty and is ideal for food intolerance's.
Sweet potatoes are not potatoes at all but belong to the winch family. Sweet potatoes are filled to the brim with nutrients and vital substances such as carotenoids and anthocyanin, these are important antioxidants that switch off free radicals and have an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect.
Our local farmers handpick 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.
Parsnips are packed with many nutritional benefits for your dog such as including naturally high levels of Vitamin E, Niacin, Pantothenic acid, Folic acid, Calcium and Zinc.
Amaranth is a gluten-free pseudo grain with an incredible abundance of nutrients and vital substances. It has a high lysine content, which is important for the production of L-carnitine. It is also rich in magnesium, iron and zinc.
Cranberries are real superberries. They contain secondary plant substances that trap free radicals and protect the cell structure. The berries mainly contain Vitamins C and E as well as magnesium, Calcium and Potassium.
How much do I feed my dog per day?
Adult dogs 16kg to 30kg: approx

Adult dogs 30kg+: approx
2-2.5% of body weight
(up to approx. 15 kg): approx. 2-3% of the body weight
Young Dogs up to 8 months: approx

Daily feeding guide chart
|Adult Dog Weight||Daily feed Amount*|
The % figure relates to the bodyweight of your dog.
Example: A dog with a weight of 20kg and a recommended daily feed quantity of 2-2.5% would require 400-500g of food per day.
The above values are guidelines for the amount of food for normally active, not neutered healthy dogs. However, this should be adapted to suit your dog's diet when fed alongside meat. It may also change due to your dog's individual needs which 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 contents within 4 days and storing in your fridge between meal to keep it fresh, this is to ensure the highest nutritional value of the ingredients as we do not use any synthetic preservatives within the food.
To store unopened: Keep in a cool dry place, away from direct sunlight
Once opened: Store in the fridge & use within 4 days
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 serve your desired amount based on your dog's age, weight and activity levels.
Top Tip: Our Wet Food lines can be happily mixed alongside our Dry RAW diets, calculate both amounts separately as your Dry RAW portion will be less than the wet food amount required per day as it contains little to no moisture.
