Award-winning ORIJEN is derived from the Latin term “origin”,  meaning source or beginning. Born from a desire to mirror the foods dogs and cats have evolved to eat, ORIJEN is the fullest expression of ORIJEN’s Champion Petfoods' Biologically Appropriate mission and dedication to fulfilling the evolutionary needs of dogs and cats.

Orijen pet food features much higher levels of quality FRESH and RAW meat ingredients than conventional pet foods, with quality animal ingredients from ranch-raised meat, free-run poultry, wild-caught fish, plus nourishing cage-free eggs.

ORIJEN pet food strives to give your dog the most Biologically Appropriate™ and nutrient-dense diet possible. Prepared exclusively in ORIJEN’s privately owned DogStar Kitchen, these foods feature Fresh Regional Ingredients that are harvested by people we know and trust, and delivered to our kitchen fresh or raw. ORIJEN follows the WholePrey philosophy, featuring whole animal ingredients that mirror what an animal would eat in nature. It contains appropriate ratios of meat, organs, and cartilage or bone, with none of the grains or gluten that typify conventional dog food. The result is a protein-rich dog food that’s loaded with a variety of fresh meat to keep your canine companion happy, healthy, and thriving.
