Ingredient sourcing is a critical step in our quality process. For us it starts with an intimate knowledge of ingredient origins and total traceability. Our highly experienced ingredient procurement team conducts routine inspections of growers, farms, ranches, fisheries, and suppliers.
Breeder’s Choice sources only the highest-quality raw materials; there are some suppliers who do not meet our standards and therefore do not qualify as suppliers. We always strive to source raw materials directly and never buy ingredients on the open market.
