  • KatKins Opportunity

    Did you know that some cat food contains as little as 4% meat? Cats are carnivores – they need meat to thrive – but cat food companies use powdered animal derivatives because it’s cheaper and easier, and they top it up with grains and fillers that cats find hard to digest. It’s all about shelf life and profit; not what cats really need.

    We do things differently at KatKin. We’re changing the cat food industry, with our 100% Fresh-cooked premium meat recipes, delivered to doorsteps everywhere. Each recipe is designed by our in-house vets and nutritionists, to be the very best (and tastiest) nutrition for cats.

    And the results show: 93% of cat parents see a health transformation in their cats when they join us. It means we’re saving cat lives, and putting pressure on the rest of our industry to be better – to make cat food that’s good for cats. Ready to help us?

    The energy here will blow you away, from day one. We’re an ambitious, passionate, rapidly-growing start-up, and we never back down on our mission to make cats healthier and happier. We’re proud of what we do, proud of our exceptional products, and you’ll be a central part of that.

    It’s an exciting time to join us too. Our customer base is growing every day, and so are our team and our product range – moving into not just cat food but wider cat health products. Surrounded by knowledgeable scientists, big creative thinkers, astute business brains, and a whole team of cat lovers, you’ll know that KatKin is a mere whisker away from becoming a household name, making a difference for cats and cat people everywhere.
