Why Somerford Raw is the Safest Option for Your Pet -

  • Always 100% Human Grade Australian Ingredients. Our Fruit & Vegetables come from the same suppliers who service our top local restaurants & cafes and is always first quality.
  • Unlike Pet Food Grade Ingredients. The transportation, refrigeration & storage of pet grade meat is not regulated. The risk of harmful bacteria growing in pet grade meat increases greatly as safe handling procedures are not followed as per human grade meat guidelines. The fresh meat & produce we use to create Somerford Raw has always been handled and transported to Human Grade Safe Food Handling Standards.
  • We have always tried to educate our customers about the dangers of feeding raw Pet Grade meat from a Knackery & the vast difference between Human Grade Meat from an Abattoir as opposed to Pet Grade Meat.

    Human grade meat means Grade 1 meat and meat that is fit for human consumption. It is free from parasites and made only from healthy animals. Animals that are sent to an abattoir to be butchered, must have a signed declaration saying worming is up to date to be classified as human grade.

    Human grade meat has to be healthy before slaughter, the health of the animals that are used for the pet meat industry is not regulated. Sick, dead or dying animals are used for pet food as they may do not meet human food standards, this poses a serious health risk to your pets.

  • Our team of Butchers produce the food in our own facility & order the produce fresh daily. This way we have complete quality control over what goes into making our product & also have full control over the manufacturing process, ensuring the hygiene and integrity of our end product.

  • Somerford Raw uses the same refrigerated delivery services that deliver your favorite meals for your family straight to your door, ensuring the integrity of your pets food & that it is delivered as fresh every time
