Sustainability Journey

Happy Hounds is a learning organisation.

We are very good at producing dog food, designed with nutritionists, to improve your dogs’ health and be super tasty. However, we know there is always room to learn and expand our knowledge for happier hounds and a happier planet.

We invite you to join us on our learning journey for sustainability.

Happy Hounds is committed to creating jobs and leaving as light a carbon pawprint on our planet as possible.

We have a long-term vision of becoming a carbon neutral company with closed production loops . It is a big dream for a small company, but we are on the road and taking steps every day to get there.
