Who we are.
Alberta Raw & Fresh Pet Foods (ARF) is an Alberta company based in the Edmonton area.
ARF is an independent, privately owned, dog specialty business and manufacturer of all-natural dried dog treats, raw dog food and raw cat food. We supply a full line of locally, Alberta-sourced meat, animal matter, bones, tendons, cartilage, antlers, and more for your companions.
ARF was founded and developed by James Barker, a dog-loving Alberta entrepreneur who was inspired to create an in-house raw food brand for our holistic dog food specialty business in Alberta, Canada.
In 2007, ARF began work on an ambitious research project and has now produced an ADVANCED RAW FORMULA line of premium raw dog and cat food. ARF pet food has been until recently only available through Barkers Dog Club and other select outlets. Now it will be more widely available to the public through several outlets, depots, and stores in Alberta.
Extensive research and development was conducted in collaboration with animal specialist, Dr. Jendral, to ensure that our raw formulas reflect the very best, proven nutritional practices and to guarantee that all of our sources are government inspected and meet strict human grade ingredient standards.
