"Regional?," I thought. Regional if you are in Canada...but this is Italy. Suspicions of greenwashing suffused my subsequent research. But the company behind Orijens reflects the values I embrace in my human diet. They apply the term "biologically appropriate" to a food which is protein-dense, and largely free of the carbohydrate-rich grains that constitute the bulk of most dog foods. I like the idea that no chicken or turkey suffers from industrial farming methods just so I can indulge the ultimate luxury of feeding a domesticated wolf. That my dog is eating fresh ingredients, never frozen much less treated with chemicals before being incorporated into shelf-stable dried kibbles.
