    I don’t see what you mean? And in the company reviews does it state whether or not they outsource manufacturing, who manufactures the product, etc.?

    Oh- just a bit more info on the above post: I want the guy/team responsible for making the food reporting to the same CEO as the people team selling and marketing the food.

    Dear DFA (Mike),

    I think it would be very helpful if you could note on each review whether or not the product is manufactured by the owner or by a contract manufacturer. I am a scientist in a different but comparable business, and I can tell you that the manufacturer is the manufacturer, and the product is sold by a marketing company. If I find a 4 or 5 star product I want to know what company manufactures it. Everyday of the week I will buy a company from the manufacturing company over a from a company that outsources manufacturing.

    For example:
    5 star (manufacturer) ; vs 5 star (outsources)

    I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

    Thank you- yes in 4 weeks picking up puppy lab – doing research now
    last time I had a dog over 10 years ago- Dog food was a much simpler business-
    and we had started him on his food that we kept him on- 18 years ago –
    so the last time I shopped for dog food was in 1998

    Thanks for your help

    Thank you for your response, I am trying to figure out if the protein thing is myth or fact-

    in human nutrition there is a lot of myth propagated and I just wonder if the difference between the protein in a 5 star vs a 4 star- is actually meaningful or not-

    the price difference between fromm and orijen is significant- I am tempted to go for Orijen- because I want my pup to have the best. But at the same time I don’t want to be a sucker for the marketing and propaganda – (which is what my vet tells me it is)

    Can you explain why Fromm Large Breed Puppy gets 4 stars when Orijen and Instinct get 5?
    I read all three reviews and don’t really see an explanation to distinguish between 4 and 5 stars. Can you point out the deficiency that makes Fromm lose a star?
    Thanks
