GUTSY. For healthy pets & a healthy planet

Our Tale

How it started

Our story started 5 years ago. We (Achilles and Jack) got to know each other at Ghent University. It soon became clear that we have a lot in common. We both like exploring the world and pub nights, but most of all: we share a love for the planet and dogs, especially our faithful companions Otis and Choco.

Combining passions

Recently we found a way to combine these two passions. We are all trying to eat more consciously and ecologically. But what about the food we serve our dogs? We decided to come up with an answer to this question ourselves.

Ready to make memories

Gutsy is high-quality insect-based dog food that brings you and your dog closer together and closer to the planet. Because life is about making memories, not footprints.

Winner, winner, insect dinner!

There are numerous advantages to eating insects. For example, did you know insects are …

HYPOALLERGENIC

Our kibble is hypoallergenic and therefore perfect for dogs with sensitive stomachs. Allergic reactions are a thing of the past, you can ask our very own Otis!

HIGH QUALITY PROTEINS

Not all proteins are easy to digest. That’s where Gutsy makes the difference. We only use high-quality and easy digestible proteins in our dog food.

AN ECOLOGICAL ALTERNATIVE

Thanks to their tiny ecological pawprint, you can feed your dog with a clean conscience

RICH IN VITAMINS & MINERALS

Thanks to the insects, apples, carrots and beets in Gutsy, we make sure to offer your dog a healthy diet.

NATURAL CLEANERS

The favorite food of insects? Our leftovers! They feed themselves with leftover wheat and beet sugar. So no planet was harmed by feeding insects.

Why try Gutsy?

planet friendly

Gutsy uses insects as an outstanding source of protein. The ecological footprint of insects is 30 times smaller per kg than that of beef. This means that by serving Gutsy you and your dog have the opportunity to reduce your own carbon footprint as well.

Locally produced

To keep our pawprint as small as possible, we exclusively choose local products. All of Gutsy's ingredients are carefully chosen and come from within a 100-mile radius of where we make our delicious kibble.

100% recyclable

Our packaging is made of mono-plastic, which means all bags are 100% recyclable. So please make sure to sort them after use!

Quinn is crazy about Gutsy. She has never emptied her bowl so quickly. Best of all, she doesn't even realise that she is doing her part for the climate.
