Artie is pleased to introduce its new, artisan-inspired and perfectly portioned pet meals that are gently cooked and ready to serve in minutes at the touch of a button. Further validating the revolutionary nature of its new product, Artie has been selected as one of five winners of the prestigious Pet Care Innovation Prize awarded by Purina, one of the world's most recognized pet brands. Each winner receives $25,000, and a grand prize winner will be chosen at Global Pet Expo to receive an additional $25,000 in cash.
Artie provides highly nutritious, artisan-inspired home-cooked meals for pets at the touch of a button. Each Artie meal is formulated by a board-certified veterinary nutritionist and perfectly portioned in recyclable and shelf-stable cups, shipped directly to your door each month. Artie is made with a super, highly nutritious blend of freeze-dried and dehydrated meat, fruits, vegetables and grains. Each meal is conveniently prepared at home through the innovative Artie countertop appliance (available in multiple colors). With just one button, it scans the meal cup then delivers a pre-programmed combination of steam and hot water to lightly cook and prepare each meal. This "blooming" process unlocks the fresh flavors and aromas within each natural ingredient while creating a mouth-watering gravy dogs love. It also ensures each meal is served at the perfect warm temperature, or PreyTemp. To view a video of how Artie works, click here.

"This is a wonderful, and credible, validation of what we've brought to the pet food market with Artie, and we're more excited than a puppy at playtime to start delivering healthy, convenient and home-cooked meals for pets at the touch of a button."
