In the summer of 2016 we Dagsmark founders were annoyed that we couldn’t feed our dogs as we feed ourselves, that is, with good Finnish food. We wondered why Finnish dogs are forced to eat dry food from abroad, even though we produce quite good food for people here. That’s why we founded Dagsmark Petfood, a Finnish company which produces dry dog food.
The business concept of Dagsmark Petfood is simple. Dagsmark produces high quality dog food in Finland from Finnish raw materials in a sustainable manner. It has been clear to us from the outset that the recipes and production processes must be something that we can talk about proudly and openly. By setting an example, we want to change the current practice according to which it is not mandatory to state the country of origin for pet food.
The Association for Finnish Work has granted our company the right to use the Key Flag. For us, the Key Flag symbol is a sign of quality and verified origin. So the country of origin of Dagsmark food is always Finland, which can be verified on each of product package. We are also the only domestic dog dry food manufacturer whose whole process is under the supervision of the Finnish Food Authority.
We want to be a company owned, loved and used by Finns. We want to be part of your everyday life with your dog, providing a good start for a happy dog life.
