Sustainable Dog Food,

insects as a food source.

ABOUT TEDS Sustainable dog food

At Teds, we are committed to creating a sustainable future for our four-legged friends and the planet. It is now common knowledge that the pet food industry has a significant impact on our environment. With up to 20% of the world's farm animals and fish used for pet food products, the pet food industry is responsible for approximately 5% of greenhouse gases emitted, making it a major contributor to climate change.

We believe it is our responsibility to do something about it. That's why we set out to create a new standard for pet food, one built on honesty, sincerity and sustainability.

Durable dog food WITH INSECT

We believe that the key to creating a sustainable future for our pets lies in using nutritious and environmentally friendly ingredients. This is why we have chosen Dutch insects as an alternative to traditional meat sources. These insects require far fewer resources to produce, emit up to 95% less CO2 and are a complete source of protein for pets.

Om een alternatief te bieden voor het huidige vis-eiwit hebben we specifiek gekozen voor Antarctische krill, aangezien deze soort zich op de bodem van de mariene voedselketen bevindt en leeft in pure, koude wateren, waardoor ze laag zijn in verontreinigingen. De krillvisserij is beperkt tot <0,35% van hun biomassa, waardoor ze een van de meest duurzame mariene eiwitbronnen zijn.

We are also committed to transparency in our sourcing, ensuring that our ingredients are sustainably harvested and preferably grown locally. Our Dutch insects are fed clean leftover fruit pulp and potato peels from nearby factories, reducing waste and promoting a circular economy. Our krill is 100% traceable, MSC-certified and harvested environmentally friendly, meaning we take measures to ensure our harvesting practices have minimal impact on the environment.

durable packaging

Finally, we understand that sustainable packaging is critical to our mission. Therefore, we use mono-plastic packaging with recycle code 4, similar to plastic tote bags, which can be 100% recycled. This ensures that our packaging has minimal impact on the environment and can be reused for future generations.

We believe that by taking these steps, we can create a better future for our pets and the planet. We don't just want to talk about sustainability - we want to lead by example. Our hope is that others will follow in our footsteps and together we can create a world where pets can thrive while conserving our planet's precious resources. At Teds, we are committed to doing good, being fair and leading the way to a more sustainable future.

Sustainable dog food

Sustainability is an important issue in today's society, and this includes dog food. Insect-based dog food is a sustainable option because it requires fewer resources and emits less CO2 than traditional dog food. In this article, we will discuss the benefits of insect dog food, and why it is a good choice for dogs and the environment.

First of all, let's look at the benefits of insect dog food. Insects are an efficient food source for dogs because they are high in protein, fats, minerals and vitamins. In addition, because insects are smaller than livestock, they require less land, water and feed. This means insect dog food consumes fewer resources than traditional dog food.

In addition, the production of insect dog food results in less carbon emissions than the production of traditional dog food. This is because insects have a lower feed conversion rate, meaning they require less feed to produce the same weight of protein. In addition, insects produce less methane, a potent greenhouse gas, compared to livestock.

Benefits of Insect Dog Food

  1. High protein content
  2. Low land, water and feed consumption
  3. Low CO2 emissions
  4. Strong feed conversion rate
  5. Lower methane production

It is important to emphasize that insect dog food is safe for dogs to eat. Many types of insects, such as mealworms and crickets, are already used in dog food and have been accepted by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Moreover, the insects used in dog food are specially bred and fed to ensure that they are suitable for dog food.

One brand that offers sustainable insect-based dog food is Teds. Teds offers a range of dog food made from mealworms, crickets and other insects. This dog food is rich in protein, fats, minerals and vitamins, and is specially designed to support dogs' health. The production of Teds dog food is efficient and sustainable, with minimal environmental impact.

Another advantage of Teds dog food is that it is easy for dogs to digest. This is because insects are a natural food source for dogs, and their digestive systems are adapted to process this type of food. This can help reduce digestive problems, such as diarrhea or constipation.

It is also important to remember that insect dog food is not the only option for a sustainable dog food. There are other sustainable options such as plant-based dog food and dog food made from residual agricultural products. However, insect dog food offers unique advantages in terms of efficiency and environmental impact.

In summary, insect dog food is a sustainable dog food option because it is more efficient in terms of raw materials and carbon emissions than traditional dog food. In addition, insects are a rich food source for dogs with high levels of protein, fats, minerals and vitamins. Brands such as Teds offer a safe and healthy insect-based dog food option. Consider trying Teds dog food for a healthy and sustainable choice for your dog.
