The Evolution of Pet Food

Whether it’s concerns about factory farming, animal welfare, or the planet, its becoming clear that the way we feed our families needs to evolve. That’s why we set out to create HOPE; a food we could feel good about providing to our furry friends. Insects are sustainably grown, and thrive in farming conditions. Studies show that the complete protein found in insects provide an easy, nutritious way to have a big impact on the big issues facing our generation.

— Traditional pet food is not sustainable —

Insect-based dog food uses a fraction of the resources
Of all meat produced in North American goes into our pet's food
Pet food in North America creates more emissions than all cars in Canada
Producing meat for North American pets requires more land than the area of Italy

These are the goals we can help address

The UN has established 17 goals to ensure global prosperity


The pressure for large amounts of human grade meat for pets taxes our food systems


HOPE can help reduce our ecological footprint by changing the way we produce pet food


75% of the emissions associated with pet food come from the production of the meat ingredients


The world's fish stocks are overexploited. HOPE helps conserve marine ecosystems by being fish free.


Human activity has altered 75% of the Earth's surface. HOPE helps protect biodiversity by being meat free.

Insect-Based Dog Food Feeds our Pets Now and for the Future

The environmental impact of pet food is no small matter. In Canada today we are feeding 8 million dogs, and growing!

25% of meat produced in North America is used for pet food. Pet parents are concerned, with good reason, about the quality of those meat ingredients – as well as the implications for animal welfare and our planet. Insect-based dog food offers us a nutritious way forward.

There is a movement toward sustainable proteins like insects, and you can read more about it and the role HOPE is playing here.

Insects Provide a Circular Alternative

Over 30% of food is wasted. Insect-based dog food can help. Black soldier fly larvae provide a valuable solution to this problem, as they are fed food waste.

The insects used in HOPE are fed traceable, recycled food including fruits, vegetables and grains. This environmentally responsible approach reduces the volume in landfills while delivering high quality nutrition. Nothing wasted, everything gained.
