Ethically Farmed & Sourced

New Zealand has always been a world leader in ethical farming. Free-range farming is common, with everything from sheep to deer to tuna allowed to live and grow in a healthy natural environment. And there are high standards of animal welfare that every farm has to meet. And we’ve set our own standards even higher. We do everything we can at Tu Meke Friend to ensure we source our ingredients from the most ethical farms around, because we want to know that there’s purity and trust in everything we make for your pet.
