Our Values

At Gourmate Pet Treat Co. we started with being as good as humanly possible to our pets, but we are not stopping there. We want to help pet parents make better choices for people and the planet too. 

Proudly New Zealand owned and operated, we are able to share the benefits of our country's innovative farming practices and more sustainable fisheries management, plus strong labour laws and human rights standards, with the world. 

Good for our community

Gourmate Pet Treat Co. is a female run company with a strong sense of social responsibility. 

Proudly New Zealand owned and operated, our raw materials are locally sourced and batch processed in Christchurch. 

Each quarter we choose a worthy animal charity or not for profit to support through the donation of treats, financial support, and awareness raising.

We are committed to honouring Te Tiriti o Waitangi, the founding document of New Zealand.

Good for the planet

We know that pet ownership does have an impact on the environment, so at Gourmate Pet Treat Co. we seek to provide better choices for your hungry pets. 

New Zealand has a global reputation for ethical farming standards and more sustainable fisheries management.

At Gourmate Pet Treat Co. we only source organic, wild, or free range proteins from premium local suppliers. 

In particular, Green Lipped Mussels are one of the most sustainable animal proteins available and a great choice for pet parents looking to reduce their environmental footprint.
