Fresh From Our Family to Yours

 

NewRoad Foods was founded by daughter-father team, Katie Smith + Greg Dorin in 2014. With decades of experience in the pet food industry, they saw the sub-par manufacturing practices and questionable ingredients that were being used and decided to create a new path for themselves and started from scratch.

They forged new roads in recipe development, ingredient sourcing, manufacturing + distribution all in the name of creating a dog treat that us dog parents could actually trust. With humble beginnings using their counter-top pasta machine in Katie’s home kitchen to now using a Gotz P20 pasta maker in their human-grade kitchen in Huntington Beach, CA, Katie + Greg have always had the same intention with making treats for our dogs—“we never compromise so you don’t have to either.”
