The Charity Program

ESSENTIAL FOODS is about much more than profit -although we take great pride in running a successful business. ESSENTIAL FOODS is our founder's vision of a company that can and will make a difference. For dogs and other living beings and their habitat.
In other words we are a purpose driven company, working every day to change the world to being a better place for animals and the nature. 

The heart of our charitable activity lies within the ESSENTIAL Charity Program. This expands every year. Our publicly annonced goal is 100.000GBP yearly (1.000.000DKK).
