Piggyback Treats Company
Piggyback Treats’ mission is to create each original recipe with the goal of making the main ingredient a “rescued” food item. What that means, is that we work with many local and regional businesses to help reduce their food waste, and maximize on their hard work, time and dedication to their farm or business. Fallen apples from orchards, spent grains from breweries, fish skins from cleaning stations, and by-products from butcher shops. We even partner with small farms to purchase their lesser popular meat items; like heart, liver, and tongue, so that they aren’t wasting freezer space for items they have trouble selling. We produce top quality, human-grade treats without the use of preservatives, imitation flavors, sugars or unnecessary additives.
