Are Yarrah Dog Biscuits Vegan?
Is it organic?
Yes: Yarrah pet food and treats are 100% certified Organic. In the UK, most "Organic" pet foods are not fully certified. This means that the food is not fully traceable and there is no direct relationship between the farm and the pet food company. The farm is not inspected etc. With Yarrah, the certification is to the same level as human Organic food. Everything is done properly!
Why Yarrah Dog Vegan Biscuits are Eco
The aims of organic farming are:
- responsible use of energy and natural resources;
- maintenance of biodiversity;
- preservation of regional ecological balances;
- enhancement of soil fertility;
- maintenance of water quality.
These are very eco! However, Organic farming can use more land and have lower yields, and so whether it can reduce carbon emissions is a subject of debate. The long running study at the Rodale Institute has found that, after a transition period, Organic is more efficient than conventional farming. They say Organic systems:
- are competitive with conventional yields after a 5-year transition period
- produce yields up to 40% higher in times of drought
- earn 3-6x greater profits for farmers
- leach no toxic chemicals into waterways
- use 45% less energy
- release 40% fewer carbon emissions
This is all down to soil health. Healthy soils could absorb and hold (sequester) a billion additional tons of carbon each year. Additionally, vegan food is significantly less destructive to the planet and climate. "Moving from current diets to a diet that excludes animal products has transformative potential, reducing food’s land use by [...] 76% [...], including a 19% reduction in arable land; food’s GHG emissions by [...] 49% [...] ; acidification by 50% [...]; eutrophication by 49% [...]; and scarcity-weighted freshwater withdrawals by 19% [...] for a 2010 reference year." - J. Poore and T. Nemecek 2019 [download the article from here] While most studies talk about human food, the impact of our dog or cat's carbon paw print is just as relevant. In some ways, pet food is quite efficient: many pet foods use "surplus" meat that would not be consumed by humans. However, it's still meat and so it's still part of the problem. Also, meat pet food contributes to the unnecessary suffering and destruction of farm animals, as well as to the climate catastrophe. Ultimately, supporting vegan pet food manufacturers now is a positive step for the climate, for animals and producers, whatever the finer points of the argument.
Why Yarrah Dog Vegan Biscuits are Fairly Traded
Yarrah products are manufactured in The Netherlands under comparable labour and health and safety laws to those in the UK. Most ingredients are sourced with in the EU to minimise the food miles, so farmers and farm workers are also covered by the laws. The Organic standard also provides some worker protection, for example with rules designed to protect the workers from pesticides.
