Grocery Pup offers freshly prepared, human-grade dog food
Pet parents looking to switch up their pup’s food now have a new brand to consider.
Grocery Pup, a brand that focuses on creating fresh dog food that’s as close to homemade as it can get, announced that its products would be hitting a Central Texas-based retailer.
The Austin, Texas-based company’s dog food is made with human-grade, non-GMO ingredients, and cooked sous-vide in a USDA-certified kitchen that helps enhance the flavor while also eliminating harmful pathogens and bacteria, the brand said.
“Our dog Lola never took to eating raw food, but I wanted her to have a fresh whole foods diet that utilized human-grade ingredients. My passion for finding the healthiest, most nutritious food possible that also made Lola excited for mealtime led to the creation of Grocery Pup,” Ruth Stedman, CEO and co-founder of Grocery Pup, said. “Tomlinson’s Feed is an Austin-based family business, just like Grocery Pup, and it was the perfect partner for us to launch our product into retail.”
Grocery Pup’s products will be featured at Tomlinson’s Feed, which will carry its Turket Pawella, Bitchin Beef and Porky’s Luau recipes in 5-pound bags for $39.99. The line will expand to other retailers across the country in the future, the company said.

The brand is partnering with cookbook author and culinary expert Padma Lakshmi to host a cereal-centric baking competition at the Kellogg’s NYC café.
Contestants will be asked to get creative and use one or more Kellogg’s cereals as a key ingredient in their dish, the company said.
“As we’ve seen at the Kellogg’s NYC Café and on social media, people love to play with cereal and explore fun, new ways to create with it,” Aleta Chase, Kellogg’s marketing director, said. “What better way to celebrate than by using cereal in your holiday baking!”
The competition will take place on Dec. 12 at the café, which will be transformed into a modern bake shop, and where Lakshmi will taste each dessert before crowning a winner.
“I’m excited to see what yummy treats folks come up with for the holidays with these great, iconic Kellogg’s cereals,” Lakshmi said. “In my own recipes, I’ve often used Rice Krispies and Corn Flakes in both savory and sweet dishes. They’re perfect for fun in the kitchen with the whole family.”
The winner will be awarded a one-of-a-kind trophy and have his or her recipe featured at the café and online. Those interested in entering the competition have until Nov. 9 to submit an entry on the Kellogg’s NYC café website.
