About the Company

“We’re Mark and Tony and a few years ago we lost our dogs to cancer. After researching potential cures online, we discovered that the processed food our dogs had eaten their whole lives may have actually caused their illness.

We decided something had to be done to educate other dog owners and protect their pets before it was too late.

So we rolled up our sleeves, dug into natural dog diets and started making the best raw dog food available anywhere in the country.

Bella and Duke is a raw and natural pet food brand which was launched in 2017 and ships more than 140,000 meals a week from their base in Blairgowrie. Bella and Duke’s mission is to help as many pets as possible to get off processed foods and onto a healthy, species-specific raw diet.”
