Benjii’s Canine Cuisine was born from a deep love for all dogs and the belief that they deserve to eat real food.

Benjii’s Complete Nutrition freeze dried dog food is made from a blend of raw and gently cooked human grade, organic ingredients and is free from common dog allergens. Complete Nutrition dog meals are formulated to meet or exceed the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for adult maintenance.

During the high-heat process that is used to produce most commercial dog food, most of the vitamins and minerals are stripped away and replaced artificially. By gently freeze drying our ingredients instead, we are able to provide a more nutritionally dense and fresher food for your dog than kibble or canned food, without the use of any artificial preservatives or synthetic vitamins.

In addition to being the healthiest dog food on the planet, we also aim to be the most environmentally friendly. By using only plant based, minimally processed ingredients, our products create less greenhouse gases, require less water usage and cause less water pollution than any of the leading pet food brands. Our freeze drying process minimizes packaging and distribution costs and all of our products use 100% compostable and recyclable packaging to further reduce environmental impact.
