We keep our customers at the heart of what we do to make sure the service they receive is Best in Show. The meals we make are not only fresh, delicious and packed full of freshly prepared ingredients, but we also deliver them straight to our customers' doors too. Handy.

Our food promise

Never any nasties, taste-tested by humans, human quality ingredients.

What is fresh dog food?

Human-quality meat and vegetables, gently cooked to create simple, tasty, and complete meals.
All created with the right balance of vitamins and minerals for dogs of every age. No nasties, no grains, no harsh temperatures.

The problem we are trying to solve

A big reason we started Butternut Box was because we couldn’t find fresh food for dogs. The food that did exist didn’t look or smell that appetising. We believe dogs deserve better.  We want to take dog food out of the bin bag and bleach aisle, and feed our four-legged family members something that is good enough for us to eat.
