We are Vital Essentials
There’s a lot of misinformation out there, so let us set the record straight. Pets. Need. Protein. And we’ll go a step further—not just a little protein, a lot of protein. Because a premium protein diet IS a balanced diet.
Oh, and one more thing… only the best protein will do.
Dog and cat owners want food that delivers more energetic playtimes, healthier skin, shinier coats, stronger teeth, and poops, proving good food is essential for a healthy gut.
We promise to source whole-animal butcher-cut protein. We’re going to freeze it at the peak of freshness. And then, we’re going to make food that your pet deserves—the quality of a raw diet in the form of treats, toppers, meals, and snacks.
Leave behind pet food that’s over-processed, overrated, and frankly overmatched when it comes to nutrients and enzymes. Give your pet butcher-cut protein.
Carnivore Meat Company provides dogs and cats (and other carnivorous pets) the opportunity to lead long, vibrant, healthy lives, exactly what they deserve. We do that by manufacturing premium-quality, raw frozen, and freeze-dried pet food and treats. Our products are U.S.A.-made and packaged in our Green Bay, Wisconsin, GFSI, and EU-certified facility. The most tenured raw pet food producer in the nation—and one of the leading private label providers of raw pet food—privately-held Carnivore Meat Company provides innovative solutions in the pet food industry.

After each feeding, thoroughly wash hands, utensils, counters, food dishes, and related areas with hot, soapy water.
Carnivore’s custom-engineered 48-hour freeze-drying process locks in moisture and freshness to ensure the raw meat retains its active nutritional elements. All products are processed in their frozen state from arrival. Raw meat is flash-frozen to lock in freshness and then subjected to temperatures below freezing, allowing it to be safely and conveniently stored without refrigeration.
Our freeze-drying process —locks in vitamins and nutrients without cooking or intense processing. Crumble and rehydrate for a complete and balanced meal or sprinkle in with your dog’s regular food.
THE POWER OF FREEZE-DRYING
Carnivore Meat Company’s custom-engineered and constructed freeze-dryers remove water from a product and lock in vital nutrients without cooking the raw food. Traditional dehydration uses high-velocity heat to remove moisture, which also reduces the product’s original nutritional content and structure.
✓ Freeze-drying maintains the nutritional and structural integrity of the food
✓ Safe and convenient storage without refrigeration
✓ Ideal for traveling, training, snacking, and everyday meals
CARNIVORE MEAT COMPANY USES AN EXCLUSIVE, 48-HOUR, SLOW FREEZE-DRYING PROCESS:
Step 1: Raw food and treats are flash frozen to lock in freshness
Step 2: The food enters a freeze-dryer where extreme cold and vacuum pressure is applied
Step 3: Water, in the form of ice crystals, is transformed within a millisecond by “flashing” from a solid into a gas, skipping the liquid stage
Step 4: The gas is then attracted to freezer plates that are -60° F
Step 5: Upon contact, the gas flashes back into ice and gathers on the plate
Step 6: The process repeats for 44-48 hours until all the ice crystals have transformed into a gas
Step 7: The freeze-dryer is then cleaned and prepared for the next batch of product
