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'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.
ZIWI Peak recipes are handcrafted with high inclusions of meat, organs, bone, and seafood. ZIWI Peak’s unique twin-stage air-drying process results in highly nutritious, shelf-stable and ready-to-feed product that is as nutritious as a complete raw diet with the convenience of a scoop and serve food. During the canning process of ZIWI Peak wet recipes, our foods are sealed and heated in order to preserve and stabilize the contents. They are then heated at the minimum temperature and time required to meet the international regulations for human and pet canned foods.
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.
