Why Farmina?

Farmina is nature and science in perfect harmony. Our mission is to develop the best all-natural, nutritious, and scientifically validated food that both cats and dogs will love. That’s why in our kitchen, we mix and cook only the finest raw ingredients following strict guidelines set by nutritional experts. With their expertise, we have designed a scientifically validated diet specific to a carnivores nutritional needs.

Dogs and cats are our four-legged family members that emanate the emotions found at home. With nutrition as the basis of their wellbeing, a balanced meal can leave them feeling happy and joyful which they can then pass onto you. That’s why our motto is: Happy Pet, Happy You. ​

NATURE IS OUR INSPIRATION
Nature is our biggest source of wealth which is why we preserve our food’s characteristics using tools and methods Mother Nature gave. We use:

ONLY NATURAL ANTIOXIDANTS 
We use Tocopherol rich extracts as a natural preservative for our products.

NO GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS 
We exclude any potential GMO ingredients from our products and instead use only GMO-FREE ancestral cereals (spelt and oats). 
> Why you should choose GMO-Free.

PRESERVED UNDER A PROTECTIVE ATMOSPHERE
Another way we naturally preserve our food is by using nitrogen during the packaging process. By introducing nitrogen into our food bags, we can displace any oxygen that’s present to eliminate the potential for fat oxidation and, therefore, rancidity. This technique is also widely used in human food packaging.

SCIENCE IS OUR METHOD
Science guides our actions, which is why we established a working relationship with the Chair of Animal Nutrition at the University of Naples Federico II. Clinical findings are developed and led by public entities to ensure scientific validity and are the basis for our food formulation. During our collaboration, many of our lines of research were published in high bibliometric scientific journals. The cooperation between Farmina and the University of Naples Federico II gave life to Farmina Vet Research whose purpose is to research and formulate new food based on the latest scientific findings.

For example, the research highlighted below talks about how a low glycemic diet can prevent obesity and diabetes in pets.
