Annual Awards Program Recognizes Top Companies, Services and Products Within the Global Pet Industry
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 15, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Pet Independent Innovation Awards, an independent recognition platform highlighting the most innovative companies, services, and products in the highly competitive Pet care industry, today announced that Tucker's, providers of the finest and freshest Raw Frozen and Freeze-Dried foods for dogs and cats, has been selected as winner of the "Dog Food Freeze Dried Product of the Year" award.
Tucker's freeze-dried formulas for dogs can be served as a complete and balanced diet, used as a topper to kibble or other dog food, or fed as treats for training or rewarding. One bag suits three different needs.
Tucker's freeze-dried formulas offer a complete and balanced diet for all life stages of a dog. The product is comprised of 95% meat, organ, bone, and marrow along with 5% pumpkin. Pumpkin is an ideal low glycemic fiber source that offers digestive support and is helpful when transitioning a pet to a raw diet.
Additionally, the formulas are emulsified for maximum nutrient absorption. Tucker's is the only raw company currently emulsifying the entire product. By emulsifying their product, the more accumulative surface area is available for dogs and cats to absorb the available nutrients. Since pets have a short digestive tract, providing this added surface area allows them to absorb more nutrients from the food in a short period of time.
The freeze dried products are also convenient for travel and on-the-go pet-parents. Available in 12 or 14oz bags, the foods come in a number of flavors including: Chicken-Pumpkin, Pork-Beef-Pumpkin, Salmon-Pumpkin, Pork-Bison-Pumpkin, Pork-Duck-Pumpkin and more.
"We're so excited to receive this recognition from Pet Innovation. We obviously love pets and believe that they are an extension of our lives and our biggest fans. With that said, they deserve the best that raw nutrition has to offer. All our meats are human-grade and sourced exclusively in the USA," said Jeff Kalish, Founder, Tucker's. "In developing our formulas, we work with 3 out of the 10 PhD Zoological Nutritionists in the world and it's these leading experts that have helped us create our 95/5 raw diets. We also feel it's important to take into account our retailer partners and their needs when creating our products."
The mission of the annual Pet Innovation Awards Program is to honor innovation and recognize the excellence, hard work and success in a range of Pet Care industry categories, including Apparel, Grooming & Cleaning, Food & Treats, Health, Housing, Toys, Training, Retailers & Services and more. The 2022 Pet Innovation Awards attracted more than 2,000 nominations from around the world.
"In the ever-expanding world of Pet Care industry, stores and consumers are being inundated with skus, making it difficult to find what you're looking for. There are a number of freeze dried options but they are usually a part of a multi-step diet for pets. This can be confusing for consumers and not ideal for pets when it comes time for feeding," said Travis Grant, Managing Director, Independent Innovation Awards. "Tucker's Freeze-Dried Raw Formulas solve that problem and conserve valuable retailer shelf space by being a 3-in-1 product. By offering a product that is meant to feed, top or even treat, Tucker's has created an innovative and nutritious product for pets that you can trust. Congratulations on being our choice for 'Dog Food Freeze Dried Product of the Year.'"
