Kleinheubach, 21 December 2021 - Wow, what a year! 2021 is drawing to a close and the Green Petfood team is taking advantage of the reflective period before Christmas to look back on all the wonderful collaborations, events, and new products of the previous year.

Many dog lovers already swear by Green Petfood's Super Premium insect-based dog food - not just because it tastes delicious, but because it is a sustainable solution for fourlegged friends. Compared to traditional sources of protein, insects generate far less CO2 during production, consume less water, require less space, and therefore have a particularly small CO2 pawprint.

Green Brands Award 2021 2022

Green Petfood achieved certification as a Green Brand for the second time!

The brand was one of the first from the pet industry to receive the award back in 2019. This seal of quality is awarded to companies which demonstrably practise sustainability. This second award with such excellent results is testament to Green Petfood's pioneering role in this area. In the 2021/2022 certification cycle, Green Petfood, with its climate positive range of cat and dog food, was nominated for the second time, and received the GREEN BRANDS award again, as an ecologically sustainable brand.

Green Petfood to go: with the Pimp your Pawprint podcast.
Pimp your Pawprint has been THE podcast for sustainable living with dogs and cats since mid-2021. Its mission is to show everyone with a four-legged friend how easy it can be to reduce your CO2 footprint and pawprint.

InsectDog Mini Grainfree

Creepy-crawlies for small and young dogs: InsectDog Mini grainfree will be available from October

The unique thing about this new addition? As one of the first insect products on the market, it is also suitable for all breeds. Insects, sweet potato and red lentils are the high-quality ingredients that give InsectDog Mini grainfree its delicious taste and make it easy to tolerate. From October 2021, the new complete grain-free food will be available for small and growing dogs from 8 weeks of age in 5 x 900g and 7.5kg sizes as well as 90g samples.

The sustainable Green Petfood pop-up store in Aschaffenburg
In September, in the first temporary Green Petfood POP UP STORE in Aschaffenburg visitors can get to know our sustainable Super Premium range, marvel at a brand new product, help themselves at the unpackaged food station, and enjoy plenty of different special offers.

News from the Ntakata Mountains
Our Ntakata Mountains forest conservation project was also part of 2021, as it is every year: as the entire project was designed to be carried out by the residents of the 8 communities in the Ntakata Mountains. There were some great successes here despite the global restrictions imposed by COVID-19. Health services financed by the project are now available for the villagers. The fund has already been able to help 30 disabled and orphaned children, among many others. 63 inhabitants are directly employed by the project, but 38,211 profit directly from it. In autumn, the forest conservation project was also awarded the 'Pathfinder Award' in the category 'Land management' by the UN Development Programme and IUCN Protected Areas.

Roll on 2022!
While 2021 is coming to an end, our many great events, innovative products, milestones, and collaborations will - of course - continue. While our Green Petfood Advent calendars are in full swing, delighting our customers with 24 sweet, mindful, and green surprises, there are already plenty of exciting plans in the pipeline for the year ahead! So, make sure you stick with us. The Green Petfood team wishes you a relaxing Christmas period and a very Happy New Year!
