GREENFIELD INCORPORATED expands upon its existing partnership with Canidae to provide dogs and cats with chemical-free, carbon-negative, nutrient-dense ingredients from U.S. farms. Canidae plans to become the first company to utilize GreenField’s upcoming Grassbot™, which may eradicate the need for glyphosate and all other herbicides in food production.
GREENFIELD INCORPORATED, the company offering Robots-as-a-Service to broad-acre farmers and delivering regenerative agriculture ingredients at scale, announced today its first consumer-packaged goods (CPG) partnership with premium pet food company Canidae™ to supply regeneratively-farmed grain sorghum harvested by GreenField's F2F© | FLEET-TO-FARM BOTony™, which uses a mechanical approach to significantly reduce the need for broadleaf herbicides in broadacre agricultural applications.
Current weed control methods in broadacre farms - which encompasses nearly 250 million acres nationwide - hinge on herbicides and tillage, which are some of the greatest roadblocks to scaling regenerative agriculture. GreenField's revolutionary BOTony™ provides a healthier alternative by leveraging robotics to eliminate weeds.
"I have personally worked with Canidae since 2015 to build a regenerative grain and legume supply chain, and we're proud to formally partner together to reduce and eventually eliminate farm chemicals from their ingredients," said Clint Brauer, GREENFIELD INCORPORATED CEO. "We look forward to collaborating with more CPG brands as we work toward completely eliminating chemicals in pet and human food."
As part of the partnership, Canidae benefits by being one of the first companies to utilize GREENFIELD INCORPORATED's upcoming Grassbot™, which is currently in development to completely eliminate the need for herbicides in no-till broadacre food production.
"From our sustainably-produced, nutritionally-dense food to our environmentally-friendly packaging, Canidae is proud to continue its 25-year-long commitment to providing America with dog and cat food that is good for both pets and the planet," said Dana Paris, Canidae's Chief Marketing Officer.
Canidae products are available nationwide in thousands of Independent Pet Specialty stores, as well as, at national pet retailers such as Petco, Petsmart, Amazon.com, and Chewy.com.
