In Vårgårda we have produced high quality food for cats and dogs for over a hundred years and we intend to continue for centuries!  

It all began in 1903

One day in the mid-1800s rose a young energetic Gothenburger named Aaron Heyman off the train in Vårgårda. On the fertile plains of Västergötland, he took the knowledge he gained from Scotland to make specially steamed oatmeal to seize the spill and after that in 1903 introduce our very first dog food "Vårgårda Dog Flour".
Today, Doggy AB the largest pet food producer in Sweden and has over a century-old tradition of pet food manufacture. The company has about 160 employees and an annual turnover of 520 million SEK.

Made in Sweden

The Swedish attributes of a clean and nutritious product are the main guiding principles for our development and production.

Our factory manufactures wet and dry food and is located in western Sweden's beautiful farmland in Vårgårda. Here, as elsewhere in Sweden, farmers use less chemicals than elsewhere in the world and the Swedish animal husbandry has for decades been characterized by far-reaching protection and security. This means that our ingredients are of the highest quality, without hormones, antibiotics and synthetic additives.
