Our journey starts with the most sustainable source of animal protein on the planet
Intensive meat farming has a huge impact on the planet, the local environment and waterways.
Our superfood insects (hermetia illucens larvae) are as digestible as the finest pasture-reared chicken, with a lower environmental impact than soya protein.
Let's see how Yora compares to other pet foods...
Save 9.5 tonnes CO2
per dog feeding Yora.
What does that mean?
We’re not anti-meat, we’re pro kindness.
Sadly most pet food is made with meat from farms where animal welfare isn’t a priority.
Our grubs are raised and collected to the highest welfare standards of any other livestock. They’re the only livestock that thrives in warm dark places up close with their friends, because this is how they live in the wild.
Our grubs are the ultimate upcyclers
Our grubs are born in Kentucky and they eat leftover grain from Bourbon distilleries. They transform it into healthy fats, protein and vitamins to store away in their little bodies.
When we've collected the grubs, the leftover organic waste has been turned into high quality fertilizer to grow more vegetables!
Yora’s even more sustainable when you recycle!
Yora’s even more sustainable when you recycle! Most pet food bags have a metallic layer which makes them unrecyclable. We’ve invested in clever resealable bags that keep your food fresh and are fully recyclable.
You can drop off our bags at a superstore recycling point in your area, find a drop off point here.
1% of our profits go to protect endangered natural habitats around the world.
From the forests of Cambodia...
We work with two great associations. The first is The Southern Cardamom Rainforest Project, in Cambodia, which aims to protect the rainforest from illegal logging and poaching. This association avoids more than 3,000,000 tons of carbon emissions each year.
...to the lakes of Zimbabwe
We also support The Kariba Project in Zimbabwe. This community project aims to protect 785,000 hectares of forest, the natural habitat of many endangered or threatened species, on the shores of Lake Kariba.
