It Started With Our Passion - Pureness for good
Crumps’ Naturals Humble Beginnings
An Idea for a New Kind of Pet Treat 2006
Joe and Margot Crump settled in Caledon Ontario with their four kids and their dog Alice. As life long dog lovers, they were frustrated by the lack of single-ingredient dog treats on the market in Canada, so in 2006 they launched Crumps’ Naturals from their garage.

With nutritional issues as one of the main challenges facing the future of companion animal health, superior nutrition is expected to play a key role in helping pets face lifestyle challenges, similar to those facing pet parents.
Developing products with limited, clean, and minimally processed ingredients, is our commitment to you and your pet.
