We're not new to this industry. The seed for Virchew was planted in 1989. Then we launched Virchew for the love of dogs-two boisterous border collies specifically: Shanti and Seva. Now, after decades of experience and new research, Virchew serves up the first plant-based, hypoallergenic: meals, treats and pill pockets for dogs that are supported by trailblazing veterinary nutrition programs and partnerships.
For us, our business is as much about humanity and compassion as it is about optimizing animal health. Virchew is an animal-free, plant-strong, sustainable evolution in canine nutrition.
It's good for dogs.
It's good for the planet.
It's good for our hearts.
We feel it's just the right thing to do.
The Virchew shareholder community (75+ people) consists of 12 veterinarians and other extraordinary individuals who represent several diverse professions from nutrition to law to accounting to medicine to architecture to activism.
We’ve exercised our provincial securities exemptions (combined with attracting several accredited investors) with the goal to create a large community of shareholders committed to the social and financial success of Virchew.
