Sourcing And Manufacturing
Purfectly Fresh appears to be owned by Teddy & Belle Limited with an office address in Reading, England. This is a private company dedicated to the manufacture of pet food.
According to the company, the pet food is made using real, fresh meat (“human quality”) in a kitchen just outside central London. The company states that the chicken, turkey, and beef that is used in their foods is exactly the same as what you would buy at your local supermarket or butcher. This is said to be the same source that supplies restaurants across the UK.
“Whilst we wouldn’t recommend eating Purfectly Fresh yourself, our founders have been known to tuck in for a midnight snack.”
Purfectly Fresh cat food is not raw. It is gently cooked to make sure any bacteria is killed.
A vitamin and nutritional mix is added to the cat food. According to Purfectly Fresh, this is because cats have very specific nutrient requirements and are very sensitive to nutrient deficiencies. All of the recipes contain taurine.
Purfectly Fresh doesn’t add vegetables or fruits to their meals. They believe that some companies add these ingredients just to humanize cat foods. Cats are obligate carnivores and don’t need them as long as they are getting their vitamins and minerals in the nutritional pre-mix that manufacturers add to cat foods.

A lovely, friendly company with great quality food and even better ethos! Love that it has no preservatives and is great for my kittens sensitive tummy. Would recommend! – by Holly Chidley
I have 2 very fussy cats whom get bored very quickly of food, I have tried everything!
I brought a tester pack and gave it a go, to start off with they didn’t like it so I gave it a few days and tried again adding some warm water to it.
Wow what a difference, they wolfed it down. I have to stop my little boy trying to eat his sister’s.
I’m looking forward to new flavours being available so they can solely eat this food. It certainly fills them up. Communication from the company is 5* prompt response and always very helpful. – by Sarah Cooper on Sep 7, 2021
I had just started my cats on Purfectly, when my Siamese became seriously ill, refusing all food and water and obviously in severe pain. She spent 7 days at the Vet hospital on serious meds- and flatly refusing food of any sort. The vets asked me to come in and try anything to get food into her – but my trial pack of Purfectly had run out – and with a bill of £1500 and rising, I really coudnt afford another big pack for a couple of weeks- and was there any point if lexie was going to die?
I rang Purrfectly in tears, not even sure what questions I was going to ask….but was offerered a small pack of food to last a few days to see if she made it—sent inmmiediately. I was able to get the chicken and Turkey into her mouth because the mince is very soft and moist- and small. She ate a little and started to pick up….and is now back home, weak – but home!
She is eating the Purfectly only- but theres a lot of other food out in case she wants something else…Her choice as a very sick cat is Perfectly Fresh Chicken- which says it all. This is a kind company – I wasnt a regular customer, I had just had the sample box from them, but they have been so kind that I want people to know! Thanks Perfectly- you are amazing – by MRS CHRISTINE F COOK
