Lip-Smackingly Sustainable

Sustainability isn’t just a buzzword here at Burns.


As a business, we’re always looking to reduce our carbon pawprint wherever we can to change the pet food industry for the better. Here are some of the ways we’re keeping on top of our sustainability mission at Burns.

Carbon Negative Food Supplier

In 2022, Burns transitioned to a UK-based manufacturer renowned for its expertise, top-tier production standards, and steadfast commitment to sustainable practices. Opting for a carbon-negative supplier seamlessly aligns with our core values at Burns Pet Nutrition, as we steadfastly endeavour to refine our environmental footprint.

Recyclable Packaging

Several years back, we made a pivotal shift towards employing 100% recyclable packaging for our dry food and treats. Recognising the profound impact even minor adjustments in everyday products can have on the environment, we’ve taken proactive steps to ensure our packaging is eco-friendly. While the packaging for Burns Wet Food comprises a recyclable plastic tray, a paper sleeve, and a cardboard box, we are actively exploring options to make the film lid recyclable as well.

Natural and Wholesome Ingredients

Burns foods boast exceptional digestibility, translating to reduced daily feeding amounts and, consequently, extended usage per bag compared to many other brands. This not only minimises packaging waste but also underscores our commitment to sustainability. We also get as many of our ingredients as possible from local suppliers, for example our chicken and lamb comes from the UK.

Moderating Meat Consumption

We meticulously regulate meat levels in Burns products, rejecting the notion that high-meat diets are a necessity for dogs. Not only do excessively high-protein diets lack sustainability, but they also pose environmental challenges. By incorporating high-quality protein sources in our formulations, we ensure pets receive optimal nutrition without compromising sustainability.

Shop Local

Burns is an ongoing advocate for Shop Local, as we understand how competitive and difficult it can be for a small business owner in a modern market. To maintain our local communities, we must support small, local pet shops wherever possible. As an incentive for pet owners, we encourage shopping local through our Burns Loyalty Scheme. This allows customers to have a loyalty card which is stamped and receive a free bag every so often.

5 Top Tips for Feeding Your Pet Sustainably

1. Monitor Feeding Portions:  By carefully measuring your pet’s food intake, you can minimize waste and ensure they receive the right amount of nutrition.


2. Utilise Kitchen Scraps Wisely: Instead of discarding healthy scraps and leftovers, consider incorporating them into your pet’s diet. Many vegetables that may otherwise go to waste can be safely fed to your dog, providing them with additional nutrients while reducing food waste in your home.


3. Moderation with Treats: Be mindful of the treats you give your pet and their impact on their overall diet. To maintain a balanced diet, adjust your pet’s main meal portions to accommodate any treats they receive throughout the day.


4. Optimal Protein Levels: Contrary to popular belief, the average pet dog doesn’t require a high-protein diet. While protein is essential for their health, excessive amounts can strain their kidneys and contribute to environmental issues. Choose pet food with moderate protein levels to support your dog’s well-being while minimising environmental impact.


5. Choose Economical Packaging Sizes: When purchasing pet food, opt for the largest bag size that your pet can consume within the recommended three-month timeframe. Buying in bulk not only reduces packaging waste but also helps you save money in the long run. By planning your purchases thoughtfully, you can minimise environmental impact while ensuring your pet’s nutritional needs are met.
