Nothing Weird, Just Bugs

We’re on a mission to use science and kindness to make radically better and sustainable pet food. Our all women team of scientists and nutrition experts looked high and low for the most nutrient-dense, responsible novel ingredients, and are excited to introduce you to HOPE!

HOPE for your pets, your planet, and our collective future. Our first line, Berry Buglicious is made with yummy insect protein – and we’re excited to tell the world about why bugs are better!

We want to deliver responsibly made pet products that will rock your dog’s world. We also want you to love our products as much as your pup does – that’s why, as far as we’re concerned, drool worthy taste and top-notch nutrition are non-negotiable.

Not only are alternative proteins like insects nutritious and sustainable, but they are also delicious! At least, your dog thinks so!
