Northwest Naturals Achieves USDA Approval for ‘Human-Grade’ Labeling

The company can now label their products as “Human Grade Pet Food” and “Human Grade Pet Treats.”




(PRESS RELEASE) PORTLAND, OR — Northwest Naturals, a leading producer of raw pet food, and Morasch Meats, their USDA-inspected manufacturing facility, announces their achievement as one of only five companies in the United States to receive full approval from the USDA, Agricultural Marketing Service “AMS” for labeling their products as Human Grade Pet Food and Human Grade Pet Treats.

USDA, Agricultural Marketing Service “AMS”, is the same federal agency responsible for grading and approving the quality of all human-grade meat products in the United States. This distinction signifies the exceptional quality standards upheld by Northwest Naturals and Morasch Meats.

“This approval is a tremendous point of pride for our entire team,” stated Michael Morasch, owner and president of Morasch Meats. “It represents over a year of rigorous program reviews and audits by federal inspectors.”

While Northwest Naturals has always formulated and produced their pet food and treats according to human-grade standards within human-grade facilities, this approval allows them to officially display the coveted “Approved Process Verified” label on their packaging, signifying their commitment to the highest quality ingredients and production processes.
