Farmina Information

The brand that Farmina originated from was founded in 1965 in Italy by Francesco Russo. In the 1990s, the brand shifted its focus and merged with a UK brand known as Farmina. Since this merger, the brand has produced the pet food recipes that fans will be familiar with.

Farmina recipes are not made in a single country. Instead, they are produced in various countries such as Brazil, Italy, and Serbia.

Farmina recipes are available at thousands of retail pet food stores across the United States and Europe. Farmina is also available from the massive online pet food sellers such as Chewy, Amazon, and Petflow.

Farmina Product Range

Dog Food

Farmina has a truly enormous range of dog food products. This range includes traditional dry dog food (kibble) and wet/canned dog food.

In addition, they also produce recipes for specific health issues, food for different age ranges, such as puppies and senior dogs, and grain-free and grain-inclusive recipes.

Cat Food

Farmina’s cat food range isn’t as large as its dog food range but is still significant. It also includes a mix of dry cat food and wet/canned cat food.

The cat food range has several speciality recipes, such as those for kittens and those cats with severe health issues.

Farmina Nutrition

Dog Food

Farmina dog food recipes offer an excellent nutritional profile when compared to other similar dog food brands. However, given the huge size of their product range, there are some recipes that offer less satisfactory nutrition.

Below is an example of the nutrition offered by a typical Farmina dog food recipe.

Farmina Chicken & Pomegranate Puppy Maxi Calorie Breakdown Chart

As you can see, the proportion of protein and fat is exceptionally high. This kind of nutrition is suitable for most dogs, and those dogs who are more active will thrive on this more so.

Cat Food

The nutrition offered by Farmina cat food is similar to their dog food range and is significantly above average.

This above-average nutrition consists of extremely high proportions of protein and fat, which aligns with a cat’s natural diet. Cat’s are obligate carnivores and so do not require a large portion of plant-based food in their diet.

Farmina Ingredients

High-Quality Meat & Fish Ingredients

  • Chicken
  • Duck
  • Lamb
  • Venison
  • Herring
  • Cod
  • Salmon
  • Trout

Farmina uses a large range of high-quality meat and fish ingredients in its recipes. This range includes many industry favorites like Chicken and Salmon. These ingredients are industry favorites, as they are relatively inexpensive and can provide excellent nutrition.

However, Farmina also uses some much less common ingredients in its recipes. Examples of these include Venison, Cod, and Trout. Unique ingredients like these are often used in dog food focused on dogs with allergies and sensitivities. Read more about these ingredients and that type of dog food in the below articles.

Other Notable Ingredients

Farmina makes extensive use of Eggs in its recipes. Eggs are a fantastic addition to any pet food recipe. This is as they can provide protein, fat, and beneficial micronutrients. In addition, Eggs are extremely digestible when compared to other ingredients, which ensure that the nutrition can be absorbed by a pet’s digestive system.


Starch ingredients such as Sweet Potatoes, feature in some Farmina recipes. Starch ingredients are incredibly dense sources of carbohydrates, which means their portion size needs to be tightly controlled. Outside of this carbohydrate content, they can provide some additional nutrition in the form of fiber, vitamins, and minerals.

While most Farmina recipes do not use grain ingredients, they do have a grain-inclusive range that utilizes ingredients like Spelt and Oats. Spelt, in particular, is an unusual addition that isn’t commonly seen in dog food. Grain ingredients such as these are preferred by some to others as they are seen as less processed.

Sadly, Farmina makes quite extensive use of some vegetable by-products such as Pea Starch and Pea Fiber. These ingredients can often confuse or mislead consumers when they are reading the ingredient list. You can read more about this subject in our article Peas, Pea Protein, Pea Flour, and Pea Fiber in Dog Food.

Pumpkin features in select Farmina recipes. Pumpkin is best known for aiding the digestion of dogs thanks to its high concentration of dietary fiber. However, Pumpkin can also provide beneficial nutrition in the form of select vitamins and minerals. Read more about Pumpkin in our article Best Dog Food With Pumpkin.


Chicken Fat is a regular addition to many dog food brand’s recipes. It is added to improve the flavor and taste of recipes as well as boosting the proportion of animal-fat present. Chicken Fat is chosen thanks to its low cost and its high availability. Learn more in, Chicken Fat In Dog Food.

Alfalfa is utilized by a broad range of pet food brands and is included in dog food for its supposed health benefits. Alfalfa can provide several beneficial vitamins and minerals that could boost the health and wellbeing of some dogs. You can learn more about Alfalfa in Alfalfa In Dog Food.

Farmina Animal Testing

At this time, we have no information on what type of animal testing, if any, that Farmina participates in.

We strongly believe that laboratory and invasive testing of animals is a cruel and outdated practice and one which should be eliminated.

Farmina Recalls

Based on our research (FDA, AVMA, DogFoodAdvisor), Farmina is a recall-free brand.

Despite this, we always suggest that pet owners remain vigilant of any future recalls of Farmina or any other pet food brand.
