Burgess is a company of pet lovers and owners and we are passionate about all furry pets.
We are committed to making the lives of pets better. Of course, we aim to do this through making great food that's good for their health as well as being deliciously tasty. But we are equally committed to helping and supporting rescue centres as well as encouraging responsible pet ownership through education. This is our Forever Promise - it is who we are and what we believe.
We do not believe it is necessary to carry out invasive tests on animals to evaluate pet foods, nor to conduct preference and palatability testing on captive animals. Instead we achieve this by only trialing our food with domestic pets (mostly Burgess employee pets) under the supervision of the individual owner, or by working with rescue centres, catteries and kennels that have been strictly audited for welfare standards and who are already feeding our food in house.
Being a family company we have strong family values. The high regard we have for our furry family members is central to these values but so is how we do business. We continually work with leaders in small animal welfare, behaviour and health to ensure we are at the forefront of small animal health and nutrition. This is why experts, from vets to rescue centres to animal behaviourists, recommend and trust our food.
