Free-Range, Grass-Fed

Free-Range, Grass-Fed

All ingredients are sourced from the green, free-range farms and blue, pristine oceans of New Zealand. Meats are sourced from humane, ethical and sustainably managed local farms. And fish is caught in the southern oceans of New Zealand, strictly managed to ensure maximum sustainability.

Air-Dried Recipes

Ziwi naturally preserves their dry dog and cat food by air-drying it, eliminating the need for artificial preservatives, salts, sugars or glycerines. Their slow, gentle, twin stage air-drying process results in a food that's as nutrient-dense and digestible as a completely raw diet, but safe and clean to handle, and can store for up to 21 months.  A little goes a long way, the recipes are so packed with the good stuff your pet needs to thrive, that you can actually feed him less than what you might be used to.

    Stinky Smell

    By otrc on Mar 7, 2021

    Smelled stinky (well...stinkier than some other cat foods) upon opening, and we weren't sure if it was a normal stink or a bad food stink since we hadn't tried it before. Either way, she refused to taste it and went so far as to refuse eat the bowl of her other food when we put a mere 5 morsels in with it to encourage her.

    Kitten loves it. My wallet does not.

    By Haesel on Feb 21, 2021

    So my kitten has loved ALL of Ziwi Peak cat food flavors, and his coat has been so soft and shiny, but I cannot justify spending what comes out to a little over a hundred dollars a month on cat food. He's a Maine Coon kitten, so he's huge, and huge kittens eat a LOT. I love this brand, but I realized I just can't afford it in the long run.

    Healthy AND convenient

    By CatMom on Feb 18, 2021

    The Hauraki Plains and Venison are Alfie's (aka "the cat) favorites. Easy to portion out daily amounts and the recommended amounts are just enough to satisfy him. So convenient having all the needed nutrients already included. Alfie has demanded we put these two varieties on auto-ship.

    Great food

    By RecipeChanged on Mar 13, 2021

    Fresh. Cats love it. I substitute this for dry carb-heavy kibble, and the obese cats are finally shedding pounds. Doctor’s orders. NO DRY FOOD.

    Wished he had liked it

    By SherreeLynne on Sep 3, 2020

    My cat-boy SHOULD have liked this...but I caught him picking out the square pieces of Hauraki...and spitting them over the side of the table, where his bowls are...making a tiny pile on the floor..?? [My Son and I, stood in the hallway watching...in disbelief!!!] OYE!! What a nutch!!! It is high in protein...it smells like fresh-caught fish...it's better for him...but, no...

    Love how soft/chewy this food is!

    By annep on Aug 15, 2020

    Not only are the ingredients stellar (my cats love it!), it's great how it's a dry-food option that is soft and chewy versus hard. I purchased a small bag to give 2 or 3 pieces to my cats as treats (otherwise, they are on wet food only!), and this was the perfect option for that so it doesn't hurt their teeth. I'll be using it soon for clicker training! It smells fishy but hey, the cats like it!

    My Cat Loves Hauraki Plains!

    By debhutch53 on Aug 19, 2020

    I have an extremely picky 5 yr old kitty cat. Over the years, I’ve tried her on premium wet, raw, freeze-dried, dehydrated, and dry food. This is her favorite food, by far. It is air-dried and very high quality. Ziwi has never had a recall and the company is stellar in their customer service. I’m so glad that Zoe has finally found a food that she consistently eats and loves! Ziwi pet food is expensive, but I would rather give her the top-of-the-line food and she stay healthy, than buy her a lower quality/lower cost food, and her health decline and then you have expensive vet bills!

    WOW!!! Only has 1% carb

    By JewelCat on Jun 20, 2020

    This is ziwipeak’s BEST air dry cat food. All three new formulas are wonderful , the Hauraki Plains, East Cape, and Otego Valley. Both of my fur babies love all three. They have always loved Ziwipeak’s can food but they didn’t care for the air dry until now. I set a couple bowls down at night time So they can snack through the night..there is only 1% carbohydrates. That’s absolutely amazing!!!!!

    No complaints about this “jerky”

    By CactusJack on Jun 9, 2020

    I’m currently feeding Ziwi’s rabbit and lamb recipe and supplementing a small serving of Hauraki Plains to a Maine Coon kitten that was adopted at 8 weeks. To my surprise, he was underweight for his age and breed. He was also showing signs of dehydration and diarrhea on the first evening. I decided to suck up all of the marketing tactics that the cat food industry was throwing my way and I bought into Ziwi’s claims. I was afraid that a cat with health issues may struggle to keep nutrient rich food down, but woah... Days later, this is a new kitten. Weeks later, he’s still hungrier than a fat kid on “cupcake day”, and his energy levels are magnitudes greater. In all seriousness, this stuff looks I’m currently feeding Ziwi’s rabbit and lamb recipe and supplementing a small serving of Hauraki Plains to a Maine Coon kitten that was adopted at 8 weeks.

In all seriousness, this stuff looks and tastes like a bland jerky with a hint of fishy umami (yes, I tried it). The first handful of ingredients tell the full story. It’s meat - cats need meat. Feed this to your cat if you love him/her. Even if you don’t love your cat, but you love environmentally conscious companies with ethical business practices, feed this to your cat. … more
