A little bit about Edgard & Cooper:
We make feel good pet food! Did you know that most pet foods come wrapped in plastic and are over processed? Enough is enough! So 4.5 years ago our founders and their dogs Edgard & Cooper decided to make their own pet food.
Today we have sold over 5 million bags, hired over 100 employees and made so many dogs & cats feel 'pawsome' – we lost count! Welcome to Edgard & Cooper - naturally, tasty cat and dog food that you, your pets and our planet can feel good about.

We call ourselves 'the pack' because we stick together. We are a bunch of animal-loving, purpose-driven pals! Working here means working in an international and supportive team where everyone has a voice. We’re big fans of curiosity and learning on the job, and if you want to join a fast-growing team and want to make a 'pawsitive' impact in the world then we might just have the role for you!
Just like our dogs – Edgard and Cooper – we’re friendly, fun and we look out for each other! Let’s raise the 'woof' together?
