Chef José Andrés Curates Recipes for New Mediterranean-Inspired Dog Food Brand

Reál Mesa announces products with high-quality ingredients to bring number one human diet to pets’ bowls.




(PRESS RELEASE) NASHVILLE, TN – REÁL MESA, a brand-new pet food featuring Mediterranean-inspired ingredients and chef curated recipes, is changing the way dogs experience food. With a mission to nourish the relationships between families and their pets through elevated meal experiences, REÁL MESA will soon be available to purchase for beloved companions on and Amazon.

REÁL MESA was created when world-renowned Chef José Andrés and his closest friends, and fellow pet lovers, gathered around a dinner table to discuss their shared passion for bringing families together through quality food. Believing that pets are a part of the family, too, the brand was designed to bring a delicious menu of Mediterranean-inspired food to pets’ plates.

“Pets of America, you deserve delicious meals, too!” shared José Andrés, co-founder of the brand. “Dogs give us so much love. It is only fair that we give them the best food we can with the quality of ingredients and care we would give anyone in our family.”

With ingredients such as real chicken, wild-caught salmon, brown rice, chickpeas, carrots, figs, kale and a proprietary blend of herbs and spices, REÁL MESA brings the number one human diet to pets’ bowls. The products follow Chef José’s philosophy of strengthening connections through the power of delicious food that is sourced responsibly and made from high-quality ingredients.

Products are available for dogs of any age, with one puppy and three adult main meals in recipes like Mediterranean Chicken & Rice Entrée and Wild Caught Salmon Feast. Pets can also enjoy treats and toppers in a variety of flavors like Lamb Recipe Bites and Chicken Kabobs.


“As a team of animal lovers, we know how much joy pets can bring,” said REÁL MESA’s Chief Marketing Officer Tierney Monaco. “It’s our mission to bring families (including dogs!) together over a delicious meal. We look forward to feeding the relationship with our beloved pets and contributing to endless evenings of laughter, joy and togetherness.”

To further support communities around the world, a portion of every REÁL MESA purchase will be contributed to World Central Kitchen, a nonprofit organization that is first to the frontlines providing fresh meals in response to crises around the globe.

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
