About Nutrisource & Pure Vita

Updated: Apr 3

Did you know?


NutriSource Pet Foods products are made by Tuffy’s Pet Foods, a 3rd generation family-owned company right here in Minnesota. Since 1964, Tuffy’s has made its Nutrisource brands (NutriSource, PureVita, Natural Planet) in the small town of Perham… population 2,985.


Nutrisource takes great care to ensure the sanitary standards of its production environment, including its state of the art manufacturing plant. They carefully select ingredients from vendors who are dedicated to ethical processes in accordance with local laws. Raw materials are tested for foreign matter and bad pathogens before they’re even allowed into the facility (In fact, the air that touches the raw ingredients is segregated so it doesn’t touch finished goods)!


Nutrisource takes great care to make sure its pet foods comply with the guidelines and recommendations set forth by the FDA, American Association of Feed Control Officers (AAFCO), and other experts in pet nutrition.


Nutrisource diets are developed by a dedicated team whose experience spans more than 65 years in the pet food industry. Additionally, they work in collaboration with a Ph. D. in Animal Nutrition that is widely respected as one of today’s foremost experts in pet food nutrition and research.


Together with Alltech, an innovative and scientific leader in animal health and sustainable agriculture practices, Nutrisource has created a revolutionary supplement system called Good 4 Life®. This proprietary blend of ingredients is in all Nutrisource products, working to repair and promote gut health - a major player in your pet's overall health.


And, Nutrisource is so confident in their product, that they back every bag with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Should your dog or cat not enjoy one of Nutrisource’s formulas, you can return it to Pet Evolution for a full refund.


And one more great thing about Nutrisouce: they are engaged in the community! They have donated largely to local schools, food pantries, the Boys and Girls Club, Kinship, the children’s weekend Backpack Program to fight hunger, University of Minnesota, Mayo Clinic, American Cancer Society, Cystic Fibrosis, Rescue Dog, ALS and many other worthy endeavors. Pet Evolution likes that a lot because we believe in giving back, too.
