Our Charity Programme
is about much more
Our meals and assortment aside, this is our greatest pride and joy. We wholeheartedly believe it is our purpose in life – our raison d’être. Based on the grand vision of our founder, Christian Degner-Elsner, we have, over the past decade, built a programme empowering people and organisations to change, improve and protect dogs & cats, our nature and wildlife. As you can perhaps sense, we take great pride in managing a well-run company. This is the foundation on which we make decisions exclusively rooted in our mission to improve and prolong the lives of dogs. Choosing ESSENTIALS is also choosing to believe that a company can exist to seek a positive change in the world.
We seek this change through our foods and through our donations to our CHARITY programme.
Always looking to expand our impact, we match 1% of our global sales with donations. In ESSENTIALS you will find a company with a soul and a mission that extends beyond profit.
In addition to that, we have “the legacy”. The founder of ESSENTIAL FOODS has chosen to bequeath half of his estate to 13 selected organisations, all working for the above goals. The organisations selected include: WWF, Greek Dogs Foundation, RSCPA, SOI Dog Foundation, Redorgangutanen.dk, Sea Shepherd, WILD AID & Rainforest Alliance.
