Kafka’s Organic Information
Kafka’s Organic is a small fresh pet food brand based in British Columbia, Canada. The brand was founded in 2018 by Sarah Fernando after she was disappointed with the low-quality food available to feed her Siamese cat, Kafka.
At this time, Kafka’s Organic only provide meals to pets in Vancouver and the surrounding areas. This includes Yaletown, Olympic Village, Kitsilano, Downtown Vancouver, North Vancouver, West, Vancouver, Surrey, Richmond, and Burnaby.
Kafka’s Organic is exclusively available to purchase from their website or their retail store in Vancouver. You can not purchase Kafka’s Organic from any other retail pet food stores or websites.
Like many other fresh pet food brands, Kafka’s Organic offers a subscription service where their food will be regularly delivered straight to their customer’s doors.
Kafka’s Organic Product Range
Kafka’s Organic has a small range of fresh dog food recipes. While the large pet food brands like Purina, and Royal Canin, have hundreds of recipes, these smaller fresh food brands tend to have a range between three and five recipes.
Kabo has three recipes that are available all year round, but they also produce some seasonal recipes such as Christmas themed food.
Each of the all-year-round recipes utilizes a unique meat or fish ingredient at its core.
Kafka’s Organic also has a small range of fresh cat food recipes. Many of these recipes are extremely similar to their dog equivalents but have been re-formulated to suit cats.
Like the dog food range, the cat food range also has three recipes, which are available year-round, with additional season recipes available at select times.
Kafka’s Organic Nutrition
Kafka’s Organic recipes provide nutrition that is significantly above-average when compared to most other dog food brands.
However, when compared to other fresh dog food brands, the nutrition offered is more in line with its competitors.
Below is an example of the nutrition offered by a Kafka’s Organic fresh dog food recipe.

Kafka’s Organic cat food recipes also provide nutrition that is significantly above-average when compared to most other cat food brands.
In contrast to their dog food recipes, it is difficult to compare their cat food recipes to other fresh cat food brands as there are so few available.
Cats are obligate carnivores, which means they thrive best on a diet high in animal and fish-based ingredients. They do not need to consume a high proportion of plant-based ingredients.

Kafka’s Organic Ingredients
High-Quality Meat & Fish Ingredients
Kafka’s Organic makes use of a small range of meat and fish ingredients in its recipes. These are all high-quality additions and great sources of animal-based protein and fat.
Some of these, such as Turkey, Beef, and Salmon, are common ingredients and favored by pet food manufacturers as they are low-cost and easy to source. However, others such as Cod and Rockfish are far less common.
All of Kafka’s Organic recipes also include a small portion of Turkey Liver.
Organ meat such as the Liver is an excellent addition and can enhance the flavor of a recipe as well as boost the levels of beneficial vitamins and minerals that are lacking in traditional meat cuts.
Other Notable Ingredients
Kafka’s Organic makes extensive use of Sweet Potatoes in their fresh pet food recipes. Sweet Potatoes are a starch ingredient and an incredibly dense source of carbohydrates.
For this reason, it is important that their portion size of Starches like Sweet Potatoes is tightly controlled.
Thankfully the portion size of Sweet Potatoes in Kafka’s Organic recipes is reasonable, and so the portion of carbohydrates they provide will not be excessive.
Less common vegetable ingredients like Carrots, Squash, and Kale feature in Kafka’s Organic recipes.
These vegetables aren’t typically found in most dog food recipes, especially those from larger brands.
These ingredients will provide a mix of carbohydrates, fiber, and select vitamins and minerals.
Flaxseed can be found in Kafka’s Organic recipes in the form of Flaxseed Oil. Flaxseed is probably the best plant-based source of the Omega 3 Fatty Acids, and as a result, it is used in a huge number of pet food recipes.
These fatty acids are believed to provide a range of health benefits to pets, including a reduction in the risk from certain health issues and an improvement in the condition of a pet’s skin, coat, and fir.

Kafka’s Organic Animal Testing
At this time, we have no information on what type of animal testing that Kafka’s Organic participates in.
We strongly believe that invasive or laboratory-style testing of animals is a cruel and outdated practice and one which we hope will see a significant decline.
Kafka’s Organic Recalls
Based on our research (FDA, AVMA, DogFoodAdvisor), Kafka’s Organic has not issued any recalls on its pet food in its short history, which makes it a recall-free pet food brand.
Given the young age of the brand its small scale, this recall-free record may not be as impressive as others.
Many believe that there are higher risks associated with fresh food due to its storage requirements, which means manufacturers must be even more cautious to avoid contamination and other issues.
Despite Kafka’s recall-free record, we encourage all pet owners to be vigilant of any future recalls from Kafka’s Organic or any other pet food brands to ensure their pets remain healthy and safe.
Kafka’s Organic Expertise
Kafka’s Organic states that their recipes are reviewed by a board-certified vet nutritionist.

Beef Bone Fantasy Review
A generous portion of Lean Ground Beef is at the center of Kafka’s Beef Bone Fantasy recipe.
This Beef provides a plentiful supply of protein and fat that would be suitable for the majority of dogs, including those that are more active.
There is also a small portion of Turkey Liver present, which, as we mentioned earlier, can provide additional protein, beneficial vitamins, and minerals and enhance the recipe’s flavor.
Kafka’s includes a small portion of Sweet Potatoes, Kale, and Carrots in the recipe, which provide a mix of carbohydrates and fiber.
