SEATTLE, July 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Addiction Foods was co-founded by Jerel Kwek, who was on a mission to find the best, all-natural ingredients in hopes of alleviating his pet's food allergies that caused bumpy, itchy skin and a lack of energy. His journey took him, literally, to the ends of the earth in New Zealand, where he found clean, effective farming and agricultural practices that produce the foods pets want to eat to stay feeling their very best.
To celebrate this dedication, and the dedication that pet owners have to involving their dog or cat in every aspect of their lives, Addiction is launching the "Ends of the Earth" contest. Pet owners can enter at http://endsoftheearth.addictionfoods.com/ and share their story of how far they've gone for their pets – highlighting the most outrageous adventures and experiences they've embarked on with their furry best friend. Whether enlisting your cat to be the ring bearer in your wedding or hiking up one of the world's tallest mountains with your dog, Addiction will award one grand prize winner with the trip of a lifetime to its home of New Zealand and a six-month supply of Addiction food, treats and other swag. Additional winners will also be selected to win a variety of prize packs full of Addiction food and treats.
"First and foremost, I'm a pet owner and, like most owners, I wanted only the best for my pet," said Jerel Kwek, CEO and co-founder of Addiction Foods. "As a family-owned brand, I'm proud that Addiction Foods always puts the health of pets over our profits. We let nothing get in the way of delivering the highest quality, unique foods and treats to benefit dogs and cats across the world and ensure they can live their healthiest, happiest, fullest lives."
Exotic Proteins and Natural Ingredients – What Nature Intended
Addiction's ultra-premium foods are made with the ingredients that nature intended animals to eat, using innovative protein sources, like venison, salmon, kangaroo, eel and brushtail, a marsupial found in New Zealand. Proteins are always humanely raised, antibiotic-free, hormone-free and hypoallergenic to provide a healthier natural solution to prevent allergies from more common proteins found in pet food.
The company also uses only fruits, vegetables and herbs that are harvested at peak freshness and never contain any by-products, fillers or artificial preservatives. In fact, pet owners would be comfortable eating most of what's used in Addiction's foods and likely already have many of the ingredients in their fridges and pantries at home – like cranberries, turmeric, peas, potatoes, flaxseed and green tea.
The Best of the Best
Addiction has earned the stamp of approval by the Whole Dog Journal, Reviews.com and Dog Food Advisor, making the company one of only a handful of brands recognized by all three major pet food authorities. Furthermore, Addiction only uses salmon rated "Best Choice" by the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch, an organization dedicated to ensuring sustainable, safe ocean farming practices. The brand's Salmon Bleu dog, puppy and cat varieties are the only dry foods to use this unmatched quality of salmon.
Addiction products are conveniently available at all-natural pet stores nationwide, and via Amazon.com, Chewy.com and the brand's online store.
