Switch to insect protein for a sustainable pet food
Producing enough food to feed our dogs and cats generates 64 million tons of methane and nitrous oxide every year and is a massive contributor to global warming and climate change. Percuro is a nutritionally complete dry dog food that’s better for the planet and good for your pet. Made with clean insect protein from the Hermetia illucens fly larvae, Percuro is a healthy alternative to traditional livestock-based foods: farming insect protein is highly efficient with a relatively minimal environmental impact. Creating 1kg of insect protein takes just 1 litre of water and 15sq metres of land, compared to 22,000 litres of water and 200sq metres for the same amount of beef.
