Our values

Safe for pets, safe for the planet

We’re very well aware of how the pet food industry affects the environment. That’s why we’re committed to always run our business as sustainably as possible.

Stand against animal testing

No matter what we do, the first thing on our list of priorities is the wellbeing and health of pets. And it’s something we’ll never compromise on, since it is the cornerstone of everything we believe in.

If it’s not the best, it doesn’t go into our food

From the very beginning, we use only the best ingredients we can get our hands on. And after 28 years, we’ve become very good at finding them for you.

Pets are humans too

Love for pets is the first matter of business in any interview at VAFO. Every one of us does everything in their power to fight animal cruelty, abuse, and testing. As should the rest of the world.

A good place to work

Happy people make a successful company. We are and always will be family business rooted in fellowship, teamwork, and honesty.

Be the best partner in pet food business

We strive to be the best business partner in the industry in all aspects. Our clients = our family.
