PawCo unveils first fully plant-based meat specially for pet foods
Offers healthy and environment-friendly option for pets
PawCo Foods has released its proprietary plant-based pet food and shipped its first batch of orders on August 3, 2022.
According to a company release,1 PawCo was founded by a former ImpossibleFoods employee and supported by a team of scientists and board-certified animal nutritionists. The team is dedicated to offering pets complete, balanced plant-based meals.
"As a scientist, I couldn't stand seeing Paco, my beloved dog, eating unhealthy food every day. That's why I founded PawCo Foods – to change how our pets eat on a daily basis and make the world a greener place. I'm now dedicated to helping all of our furry friends out there to live a happy, healthy and joyful life" said Mahsa Vazin, PhD, founder and CEO of PawCo Foods, in the release.
This plant-based meat is just as tasty as traditional meat while also providing all the essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals necessary for dogs, according to the release.1 With this product, PawCo aims to enhance pet health, reduce animal farming, and decrease the effect of pet food manufacturing on the environment.
PawCo raised their seed round earlier in 2022, and the team has been working on their proprietary plant-based meat. It is now accepting orders for new customers.
