About Butternut Box

Butternut Box is a subscription-based provider of certified fresh dog food.

Founded in 2010 from a flat in London, the company moved to a pilot facility in 2016. With the concept proving a massive success with dogs across the UK, they quickly outgrew capacity and knew they needed a dedicated partner to support their food safety and quality compliance for their growing market demand.

How the Journey Began

When a beloved family pet developed tummy troubles, one frustrated human couldn’t find healthy dog food that helped. Taking matters into his own hands and kitchen, he began to cook simple ingredients and the troubles soon disappeared.

An idea was born with a friend to deliver health and happiness because dogs deserve better – and from cooking at night, the company has rapidly grown in 8 years.

When scaling to a new production kitchen, Safefood 360° was chosen as the platform of choice and began to deploy during 2020 ahead of the factory go-live date in 2021.

Butternut Box is now a BRCGS AA+ certified company that operates across Europe from two manufacturing facilities and show no signs of slowing down.
