Startup Showcase: Tom&Sawyer Fresh Cooked Pet Meals – Revolutionizing Pet Food Industry in Canada

As pet owners, we all want the best for our furry family members, and that includes their diet. Tom&Sawyer Fresh Cooked Pet Meals, founded in Toronto in 2015, recognized the need for healthy and nutritious pet food options and quickly became the market segment founder and leader for fresh, gently cooked pet food across Canada. Tom&Sawyer’s mission is to help family pets live healthier, happier, and longer lives by offering restaurant-quality ingredients cooked to perfection to deliver optimal nutrition to pets.

Revolutionizing the Pet Food Industry

Tom&Sawyer Fresh Cooked Pet Meals was the first fresh cooked pet food subscription company in Canada, and it remains the only fully national direct-to-consumer subscription gently cooked pet food company. The company has sold almost two million pet meals across Canada and has expanded to hundreds of specialty pet and grocery retailers.

Tom&Sawyer has faced many competitors since its launch, but the company prides itself on being a transparent and accountable brand. While other companies have entered the market, most of them are marketing companies, with no food production or investment in scientific research around their products. Tom&Sawyer, on the other hand, invests in a robust research and development program to bring more innovative and therapeutic products to the market in Canada and beyond.

The company’s continued research clearly shows the positive impact that feeding highly nutritious fresh food to pets has on their health, and this has been a fundamental reason why Tom&Sawyer has adopted human food regulations to create the highest quality pet food in the world.

Innovative Products and Firsts in the Canadian Market

Tom&Sawyer has pioneered many firsts in the Canadian market, including being the first company to make nutritious gently cooked meals for both dogs and cats. They were also the first to make specialty diets to help pets with specific health issues, such as kidney or liver problems, allergies, and more. The company’s kitchen facility is open to the public to see how its products are made, and it is the first company to have a head chef and culinary-trained members of the team.

By controlling the entire production process, Tom&Sawyer can introduce new recipes quickly and respond to new research findings by the team. The company is currently focused on how microbiome and genomics will drive future recipe development.
