Percuro contains oats that are a valuable and sustainable source of protein
Oats are scrummy, sustainable and gentle on your pet’s tummy. They are high in essential B vitamins and minerals including manganese and phosphorus. Pound for pound, oat protein and carbohydrate uses far less water to produce than meat protein. We use naked oats in our formula, which is even gentler to digest.
Check out these staggering stats:
|Protein type||Water consumption per gram of protein|
|1 pound of beef = 90-100 grams protein||Costs 20-80 gallons*|
|1 pound of oats = 75 grams of protein||Costs 3.8 gallons*|
Our recyclable packaging
Our recyclable 2KG pet food packaging is a post-friendly sturdy box. This avoids the need for further outer packaging to send it to your door.
We know this isn’t perfect, but with today’s proven options we put the quality of our food and health of your pet first. So, our teams are working closely with our packaging innovators to find ways to further improve on our journey to sustainability.
