Below is a quote from Charly of Pawdega:
‘We are beyond thrilled to be able to offer Paleo Ridge to the pets of the UAE! It’s been a long journey and we are incredibly grateful to have made it this far with the help of the amazing team at Paleo Ridge.
Introducing Paleo Ridge has been a huge success in the UAE. Everyone is loving Paleo Ridge meals, due to the incredible quality, the sustainable packaging and the fact that it is 100% free of synthetics. We have had many reports of pet parents who say for the very first time, their dogs are finishing all their meals and even the fussiest dogs are loving it. We even had one pet parent who had to switch to feeding Paleo Ridge because her dog would not touch the old food anymore!
At Pawdega, it really was a huge decision for us when we were selecting a raw food brand to partner up with. We review every single ingredient of every single product to make sure the ingredient is safe, and beneficial for our dogs. We don’t carry anything that does not meet our values and we only carry products that help us make the pet industry a safer place. We want pet parents to feel safe when they shop at Pawdega, knowing they don’t have to worry about potentially harmful ingredients, preservatives, or synthetics.
Larry and I had a huge list of requirements that our raw food brand had to fulfil to be accepted into our store. Besides using best quality and ethically raised meats, it was also important for us to choose a brand that is sustainable and truly synthetic free.
The food had to be truly 100% synthetic-free. So many raw food companies these days are calling their raw food natural, but they still use synthetic vitamins, minerals, and filler ingredients. We can’t stand why companies that try to mislead pet parents, so we made sure we found a company that was truly synthetic-free.
Another requirement was sustainable packaging. When we opened PAWDEGA, we wanted to be as sustainable as possible. While we believe raw feeding is the best we can offer our pets, but raw feeding can be such a huge contributor to plastic waste, since our dogs eat the food on a daily basis. We are incredibly proud to be able to offer Paleo Ridge raw meals that are biodegradable, compostable, and recyclable! Currently, there is no other raw food available in the UAE that is using sustainable packaging, and we hope this will encourage others to move toward sustainability.
Obviously, another huge requirement for us was also the quality of ingredients. Honestly, sometimes I struggle to find the right words when it comes to describing how happy we are to finally be able to feed our dog ethically raised, outdoor raised, and free-range meat. Before Paleo Ridge was available in the UAE, we did not even have the option to feed free-range poultry to our dogs. Free-range and outdoor reared poultry was simply not available on the market. Paleo Ridge has elevated the health and wellbeing of dogs across the entire county, there is nothing even remotely comparable and we are so excited it all worked out.’
If you are in Dubai, pop by and say hello to the lovely Charly, Larry and Milka and send us your photos with our products, we would love to see them!
