What is freeze-drying?

Freeze-drying is a dehydrating cooking technique that allows your dog’s raw food to retain all its nutritional value while greatly prolonging its shelf life.

The result is a delicious dry nugget that is 100% raw and room-temperature stable. No freezing or thawing required.

100% human-grade

We use the same human-grade ingredients that
you put on your plate. No preservatives, no fillers,
no artificial nonsense.

My spaniel loves it, shiny coat and tiny poos, what more could you want... Originally we looked for something we could use with the dogs when we travelled in our camper as raw takes up too much fridge space and this combines brilliantly with raw food. Although such a success with Harvey I'm keeping him on it. Brilliant customer service as well. Well done.

Raw food is best for our friends but the frozen alternative not always practical. We ordered the Ella & Co on a trial basis to start with and we shall not look back: Maxi loves it, it is light and easy to travel with, I have tasted it myself..... and Maxi has yet to share it with a dog that does not empty her bowl before she gets a look in! We are looking forward to new tastes. Thank you James.

Lola, my cavapoo, loves the food and she is soooo fussy! I mixed it, at first, with her usual raw meat. She just ate round her usual food and left it! So she’s now on the new food full time. It’s so easy to store, on a narrow boat. So life is so much easier!

Your questions, answered

There’s no refrigeration or freezing required – simply store it in your kitchen cabinet!

Simply pour their food into a bowl and add a splash of water to help bring out the natural smells and flavours. Remember: the food your handling is raw. So be sure to wash your hands as well as any serving utensils and surfaces before and after serving.

Ella’’s freeze-dried raw is not recommended for puppies. Once your puppy reaches 10+ months they’ll be ready to subscribe to a freeze-dried food subscription! Why not take a look at our cold-pressed option? Suitable for puppies over 4 weeks.

The great thing about our freeze-dried products is they’re incredibly convenient, being room-temperature stable and don’t require refrigeration! Freeze-dried products have an excellent shelf life and can be stored for years! But once opened, be sure to place the freeze-dried nuggets in the storage bag supplied keeping the bag sealed using the zip closure to lock in freshness.

This depends as your orders are personalised to your dog 🐶 Ella’s freeze-dried raw comes in different sizes (anywhere between 2kg – 10kg). We send you the most appropriate sized bag and calculate how long we think one bag will last you, based on your recommended portion sizes, and we plan to send your next big bag exactly when we think you’ll need it.
