Why choose Real Nature’s Food?
In Real Nature’s Food we choose highly nutritional natural raw materials, like meat, fruits and vegetables in order to achieve the best balance of nutrients. Our meals are complete and balanced and because of their composition, they are ideal for a balanced nutrition and provide strong antioxidant protection. All natural ingredients preserve their taste and attributes and do not “overlap”. This harmonious coexistence helps maintain all natural flavours and achieve this fine balance that is so characteristic of our meals. We use raw materials from Greece and we work alongside distinguished Greek producers. Meat, poultry & fish used as raw materials are Premium Quality Products fit for human consumption.
We use extra virgin olive oil, spices and premium quality superfoods. We use probiotics from sheep yoghurt which enhance your dog’s digestion and natural antioxidants such as turmeric and grated coconut. We do not use colorants or chemicals; instead, we select fresh and high-quality raw materials that guarantee optimum balance between proteins, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. All our meals are free of known allergens: corn, soya, wheat.
Our meals are designed following the guidelines set by expert veterinary nutritionists. The daily needs of our pets are taken into account and the same applies to any special problems. Thus, we are able to offer low-fat or hypoallergenic meals, meals for highly active dogs and puppies or meals for pets with troubled stomach to ensure the best possible functioning of your beloved four-legged friend. We respect and love animals. That is exactly why we offer them the best natural products in a series of complete and balanced meals for their daily nutrition. The aim is for them to be happy, healthy and strong.
In Real Nature’s Food we invest in human resources.

How it all started…
It all started several years ago when I decided to start preparing food for my dogs on my own, using the same high-quality ingredients I included in my diet. I had already read a lot about raw feeding and I was gradually introduced to the B.A.R.F. (Biologically Appropriate Raw Food) diet. My first recipes were prepared in my home kitchen with simple, fresh raw materials and real ingredients such as meats, fruits and vegetables.
Much to my delight and that of my friends, the positive effects on my dogs’ health were immediate and obvious. Occasionally, my dogs used to suffer from constipation and itching with no apparent cause. Gradually, however, their stools became firmer with fewer odours. The itching disappeared and their coat became shiny. My dogs, while on that diet, looked better than ever. They were healthy, active and happy.
My friends started asking me to prepare the same food for their dogs. The recipes were simple with no complex mixes and preservatives, just like the raw food that dogs consumed before they were domesticated. After a short while it became obvious that those meals were something entirely different from other dog food that was available in the market. And that is how I came up with the idea of creating Real Nature’s Food. The aim was to establish a state-of-the-art production unit of high-quality natural nutrition products for our pets.
Since then much has changed but our love and care for animals have remained the same. In 2015 we created a small production unit of raw meals for dogs. Soon, Nature’s Food gained loyal friends and supporters. At present, our company is perhaps the biggest Greek manufacturer of pet food based on B.A.R.F. diet.
At first we marketed four complete meals for dogs and gradually added more meals. At present, we are the only company in Greece to offer a series of eighteen complete and balanced meals for dogs in four different types of packaging for easy handling and portion control. Our products have received awards in Greece for their innovative packaging and their nutritional value.
Packaging Innovation & Product Award (bronze), for our innovative packaging (2017).
Two awards at the PET AWARDS, one for our SUPERFOOD series and one for our MULTIVITAMIN series of fresh broths (2020).
Two awards at the PET AWARDS: gold for our NATURE’S KITTEN GROW series (unique in the category of B.A.R.F. meals for cats) and for CRETAN DINNER, our new series made of pure ingredients from Crete (2021).
