Transforming Pet Nutrition: Why Percuro Pet Food is the Future of Sustainable Dog Food

Transforming Pet Nutrition: Why Percuro Pet Food is the Future of Sustainable Dog Food

In today’s world, sustainability is more than just a buzzword; it's a necessity. The global food system provides an abundance of food at a low cost—at least financially. As Darren Vanstone points out in a recent study, the food system’s growth relies on practices that harm the environment, animals, and communities (Vanstone, 2023). Let’s dive into the issue and explore why Percuro is your best bet for a sustainable and healthy dog food option.

The Real Cost of Pet Food

Animal agriculture is a major contributor to environmental issues like climate change, deforestation, biodiversity loss, and water scarcity. Vanstone’s research highlights that this system relies heavily on intensive farming practices, which lead to poor animal welfare and adverse effects on surrounding communities due to pollution and poor working conditions (Vanstone, 2023). The estimated externalized cost of these negative impacts is a staggering 20 trillion USD —double the current food consumption value.

Why This Matters to Your Dog's Dinner

The sustainability crisis in animal agriculture isn’t just a global issue; it hits home in the pet food aisle too. With rising demand and limited supply of animal proteins, the pet food industry faces significant challenges. If we investigate the scope of pet food, we see that dogs and cats are responsible for 20% of the world’s meat, chicken, and fish. Traditional pet food has taken its toll on our planet. As traditional protein sources become more expensive and scarcer, it's time to consider alternative options that are both sustainable and nutritious.

The Game-Changer in Pet Food: The Black Soldier Fly

Percuro Pet Food is leading the way with insect-based dog food. The Black Solider Fly (BSF) is a highly sustainable protein source as it uses 92% less space, 99% less water and creates 99% less carbon than making the same amount of beef protein. This makes the BSF a perfect fit for a future-focused, eco-friendly pet diet. Vanstone mentions that the insect industry can "drive positive impacts, including resiliency, in its supply chain while avoiding supply issues that come with animal-based pet foods" (Vanstone, 2023).

Why Percuro is Perfect for Your Pup

  1. Sustainable Protein: Insect protein is a sustainable alternative to traditional meat sources, and it still contains all the same good stuff as animal protein such as 10 essential amino acids. Not to mention, it’s great for dogs who suffer from meat allergies!
  2. Nutritionally Balanced: Made with just 72% plant-based ingredients and BSF protein, you won’t find any funky ingredients you can’t pronounce in Percuro.
