Pet food: Applaws and Encore re-awarded Ethical Accreditation

When it comes to pet food, the ethical history of this industry is complex. Over decades regulation has seen significant improvement and notable progress has been made. But the choice of ethical cat and dog food in the main supermarkets still tends to be rather limited, and the ethics behind the most readily available brands remains in question.

One company you can trust is MPM Products, the makers of Applaws and Encore.

Both of these brands rank among the very top on the ethical index, with 80 ECIs respectively.

If you're new to these brands, MPM Products creates natural food for pets, which excludes artifical preservaties, additives and colourings. Its two pet food brands can be described as follows:

Applaws cat and dog foods contain high levels of quality animal protein - chicken breast and fish fillets in their wet foods and their dry food contains only chicken meal and nothing artificial added.


Encore pots and pouches include only the finest quality ingredients and no hard-to-digest fillers, additives or low-grade animal derivaties.
