The roots of the Ruud family in agriculture and animal husbandry go back centuries. Braeden’s mother, Mary Ann, began cooking at home for their family’s pets in 2007 after the massive outbreak of pet food contamination that resulted in the deaths of thousands of animals. This inspired the Ruud family to start a business that pet parents can trust with a strong emphasis on safety and transparency.
