The first raw meals and treats that are safe for your family and pet.
Of course, we know that you’re concerned about bringing a raw diet home for your pet. So you’ll be pleased to know that Stella & Chewy’s products are produced with our exclusive SecureByNature food safety process (patent pending), designed to make them safe from harmful bacteria naturally while retaining the food’s nutrient value and flavor. Plus, every batch we make is tested before packaging.
Hydrostatic High Pressure (HHP) is a technology that “puts the squeeze” on food pathogens without cooking out vital nutrients or changing the natural taste. It’s based on the discovery that bacteria cannot survive at pressures five times those found at the deepest sea level. To date, HHP is the only scientifically recognized pasteurization process that does not use heat or irradiation to accomplish this. But that’s just one of the steps we take to protect the health of your family and pet.
Dedicated manufacturing plant.
All Stella & Chewy’s products are produced at our own federally-inspected plant in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Clean ingredients. All of our farmers and suppliers provide Letters of Guaranty stating that their meats and produce are fresh, are unadulterated and in full compliance with all applicable federal regulations.
Clean machines. We go far beyond the letter of the law when it comes to keeping our operation clean. Unlike many pet food companies, we clean and sanitize our equipment at the end of every day.
HACCP compliance. We strictly follow Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point Guidelines, a prevention-based food safety system established by the FDA and USDA.
Advanced oxidation cells. To further prevent contamination by surface and air-borne pathogens during processing, we use a series of devices that emit low levels of safe, pathogen-fighting gases such as ozone and hydrogen peroxide.
Independent laboratory testing. Not only do we have state-of-the-art food safety systems in place, but every batch is tested before shipping. We send samples to an independent laboratory to be tested for E. coli O157:H7 and Salmonella.
