Evermore Pet Food Inc., an independent, Brooklyn, New York, USA-based company, is now making Yappy Gourmet, its cooked food for dogs. The company drew on the trend of consumer awareness of dietary choices for self and the environment.
Evermore calls its Yappy Gourmet customers “foodies who are already committed to eating locally and sustainably and are looking to extend this ethos to their pets." It supports regional vendors in the Northeast and uses only human-grade, whole-food ingredients, the company says.
The products are cooked and then flash frozen to retain freshness, nutritional integrity and flavor. Available in beef and chicken recipes, Evermore can be purchased in various retail locations in New York.
