Pet food ingredients explained
At Royal Canin, we choose our ingredients first and foremost according to their nutritional benefits. This approach also helps ensure we develop products that are suited to the needs of cats and dogs, and enables us to select ingredients that minimise our impact on the environment.

How we choose pet food ingredients
Selecting nutrients sustainably
At Royal Canin, we have been working with the large majority of our suppliers for many years. We have grown together to achieve the level of quality we are proud of. When needed, we work as partners and investors with them to develop specific ingredients or standards, including developing farming practices that have a positive benefit on the ingredient's nutritional quality or safety, or on the environment.
We also work with a range of strategic partners, such as The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), to ensure we address the sustainability of ingredients and don't use materials coming from endangered species.
When considering your pet food choices, remember that ingredients are only as good as the nutrients they provide. What truly matters is that the right nutrients are provided in the right quantities to support your pet's health and lifestyle. By understanding nutrients and their benefits, you can make informed decisions about your pet's diet.Essential nutrients explained
