Customize Your Dog’s Diet with Ollie Pet Food
When you need to restock your supply of dog food, where do you go? You probably head to your local pet store to pick up a bag of kibble, maybe even a few cans of wet food. But what if there were an easier option, and what if that option was healthier and more nutritious for your dog than anything you find at the pet store? If you are serious about offering your dog the highest quality nutrition available, you should check out a new pet food startup called Ollie.
Today, most commercial dog foods are made using the extrusion process – a process that was developed by the Ralston Purina Company in 1950. Over the past few decades, however, pet food has evolved and changed with new options becoming available each and every year. The premium pet food market has grown into a $13 billion market and it continues to grow. But even with improvements to pet food manufacturing processes, the quality of many commercial pet foods is still woefully below average. Ollie is a premium pet food startup that seeks to change the face of the pet food industry, offering customized meal options for dogs in all life stages.
What Makes Ollie Different?
Quality nutrition is the secret to a long and healthy life for both you and your beloved pet. What many pet owners do not realize, however, is that many of the commercial dog food products on the market only meet the bare minimum requirement for complete and balanced nutrition for dogs. An unsettling number of pet food producers cut corners to save money and your dog ends up suffering the consequences. Ollie is different in every conceivable way – – Ollie offers a completely new product that enables loving pet owners like you the option to customize their dog’s diet. With help from a team of canine nutritionists and a scientific algorithm, Ollie is able to produce personalized pet food formulas catered to your dog’s unique nutritional needs.
If you lead a busy lifestyle but still value a home-cooked meal, you may be familiar with services like Hello Fresh and Blue Apron that deliver fresh ingredients and healthy recipes right to your front door. These services are great, but the meals still require a certain degree of prep time which many people simply do not have. Ollie is actually more closely related to services like Sprig and Maple which deliver fresh, fully-cooked meals to your doorstep. This means that you don’t have to do any of the prep work yourself – the food comes perfectly portioned and carefully packaged to preserve its freshness. All you have to do is scoop it into your dog’s bowl!
Getting started with Ollie is incredibly simple – just complete an online profile for your dog including his breed, age, activity level and alteration status (intact or spayed/neutered). Using this information, Ollie will calculate your dog’s daily calorie needs and create a custom meal plan to meet those needs. Ollie’s meals are prepared in a third-party USDA-certified kitchen in Pennsylvania and delivered in two-week intervals to ensure freshness. If at any time your dog’s nutritional needs change, you can always update his online profile. Each and every meal that leaves the kitchen is guaranteed to meet AAFCO base requirements for dogs and their recipes are produced in small batches so you can feel good about feeding them to your dog.
What Does the Future of Ollie Hold?
Ollie was founded by Gabby Slome, Alex Douzet, and Randy Jimenez – all pet owners who understand the importance of a quality diet for the long-term health and wellness of pets. Currently, Ollie offers limited delivery in all 48 states in the continental U.S. but they hope to expand their availability over the next few years. In fact, Ollie just secured $4.4 million in venture capital from Primary Ventures and Lerer Hippeau Ventures to help them achieve this goal. With this funding, Ollie hopes to be delivering healthy, natural, and customized meals to dog owners all over the country before long. There are also plans to add a line of cat food products in the near future.
If you are looking for a way to improve your dog’s diet and to maximize his nutrition, all with minimal effort on your part, you may want to consider Ollie. Ollie’s custom meals are made with human-grade ingredients and tailored to your dog’s unique nutritional needs. What more could you ask for?
