Food Quality ★★★★★
Ziwi is super open about the quality and sourcing of their ingredients. As large majority of their ingredients is the meat and seafood which comes from the pristine New Zealand oceans along with the unpolluted New Zealand grasslands. Ziwi gets a big fat 5★ in Food Quality. The other big factor we took into consideration is their Recall history. As to current Date December 2020, Ziwi has yet to be affected by any product recalls in all 19 countries their dog food is marketed to. This shows that their productions methods and hygiene standards are held to the highest international standards.
Price Range ★★★★☆
The price range for Ziwi is 4★. The only reason is, due to it’s high ceiling cost. It’s one of the most expensive dog food brands out there today. However, due to it’s lack of filler content and nutritional value, it’s worth every dollar. So why only 4★, that’s because despite having the highest food quality standards in the industry, it’s not completely affordable to the majority, especially towards the working class pet owners who own more than 1 pet.
Nutritional Value ★★★★★
As we know, the food quality of Ziwi is set really high, and due to it’s contents being majority of meat and little to no filler. It’s all nutritious for your dog. It really doe deserve all 5★ here.

Do you have a picky dog eater, well it doesn’t matter. Ziwi has a wide range of flavors and food for your dog. Whether they are a baby, adult, working dog or senior dogs. Ziwi has the right food for them which also comes in multiple flavors.
Didn’t I say earlier, they are available in 19 different countries. That super convenient in Fayie’s books. Imagine traveling with your dog and completely forget to pack enough food, well, you won’t need to worry as long as you are heading towards one of the 19 countries. At worse, it’s available at Amazon which you can order and have it delivered from there instead!!!
Ziwi is one of the small number of manufacturers who air-dry their kibble instead of using high-heat extrusion process. Not sure what this means, you can check where Fayie breaks down the difference types of processing dog food.
