April 23, 2024 | by The Jeuns

Northwest Naturals, a renowned producer of raw pet food, and Morasch Meats, their USDA-inspected manufacturing facility, have proudly announced their recent accomplishment of being one of only five companies in the United States to receive full approval from the USDA, Agricultural Marketing Service “AMS” to label their products as Human Grade Pet Food and Human Grade Pet Treats.

The USDA, Agricultural Marketing Service “AMS”, is the federal agency responsible for grading and approving the quality of all human-grade meat products in the United States. This recognition highlights the exceptional quality standards maintained by Northwest Naturals and Morasch Meats.

Michael Morasch, the owner and president of Morasch Meats, expressed his team’s pride in achieving this approval, emphasizing the rigorous program reviews and audits conducted by federal inspectors over the past year.

While Northwest Naturals has always adhered to human-grade standards in formulating and producing their pet food and treats in human-grade facilities, this approval now allows them to proudly display the coveted “Approved Process Verified” label on their packaging. This label signifies their dedication to utilizing the highest quality ingredients and production processes.

Northwest Naturals, a brand under Morasch Meats, is committed to offering pet owners the healthiest and most nutritious options for their beloved pets. Their raw pet food and treats are crafted with whole, minimally processed ingredients that meet the same strict standards as human food. For more information, visit their website at
