About The Manufacturer

When the Bishop family dog, Blue, faced a variety of health issues, Bill and his two sons set out to create a pet food that was made with only the highest quality natural ingredients. Blue Buffalo was founded with the idea that dogs and cats are part of the family and their food should reflect that. They produce high-quality, natural foods to help dogs and cats live happy, healthy lives.
