ZIWI Peak is a natural food, handcrafted in small batches, featuring high inclusions of meat and organs and excludes artificial fillers, dyes and preservatives. This, in combination other natural factors such as age and seasonality of the ingredients we use, often results in variability of shape, size, color, texture and odor. This variation is perfectly normal and is an indicator as to how natural the food really is!
The foundation of ZIWI Peak's air-dried and wet recipes are the same ─ both are rich in New Zealand sourced meat inclusions and low in carbohydrate. The main difference is moisture content. ZIWI Peak air-dried foods feature up to 14% moisture, while our wet foods feature up to 78% moisture. Whether you choose our air-dried or wet foods (or maybe both) either option is a complete and balanced food that your pet will surely love!
ZIWI Peak wet foods are made with New Zealand sourced raw meats and organs. When canned, our foods are sealed and heated in order to preserve and stabilize the contents. They are heated at the minimum temperature and time required to meet the international regulations for human and pet canned foods.
ZIWI Peak's air-dried foods are proudly made in New Zealand─ crafted in small batches in our family-owned kitchens.
It's important to us that you and your pet are fully satisfied with our foods! We have a worry-free return policy. If our foods don't meet your expectations, simply return the food to your retailer for a refund or replacement product.
Our air-dried foods are not a raw food, however they are raw-inspired. Meaning that our foods are made with high inclusions of raw meat, organs and bone and are extremely low in carbohydrate. Our foods are gently air-dried ensuring a pathogen-free, nutritionally complete and shelf stable food.
Our air-dried recipes offer the nutritional benefits of raw, in a safe and convenient ready-to-serve food.
No, ZIWI has never had any recalls or product withdrawls.
ZIWI Peak foods are complete and balanced ─ meaning that they meet all the daily nutritional requirements your pet needs. In fact, our foods exceed the minimum nutritional requirements, to ensure your pet reaches their peak conditioning!
Unlike most pet foods, ZIWI Peak recipes are highly digestible ─ over 95%. Digestibility is calculated by measuring the amount of calories and nutrients consumed and the amount of calories and nutrients excreted in the pet's stool.
Our unique twin-stage air-drying process preserves the nutritional benefits of our natural ingredients while eliminating pathogenic bacteria, such as salmonella and Escherichia coli (E.coli).
Bone is part of a wild-prey diet for carnivores and is a natural source of minerals, including calcium and phosphorus. This is why bone is an important part of our recipes.
Unlike most pet foods that use highly processed ingredients, our ingredients are minimally processed, so you may find small pieces of bone in our food ─ most likely in our Rabbit and Lamb recipe that features minced wild rabbit.
ZIWI Peak's wet foods are proudly made in New Zealand, using 100% New Zealand sourced chicken, meat and seafood.
