Having looked on the website, they are saying orders may take longer due to high demand. I think I will leave it until after the holiday weekend. I looked at natures instinct which seems similar but it is more expensive to buy the 500g cartons. I will have to get the calculator out and compare.

Natural Instinct is a little more expensive than Nutriment's working dog range (though personally I don't mind paying a bit more in exchange for reliability), but nowhere near as expensive as Nutriment Dinner for Dogs - a couple of the varieties of that are a massive £12.50 per kilo  :o

Yes, the Dinner for Dogs range is more expensive.  Like you, I don't mind paying a bit extra but I would find it a bit pricey.   As I posted in another thread, I was astonished at the savings my friend made the other day when we visited a small warehouse that specialises in raw food food for dogs.  However, not everyone has such a facility, particularly in areas like yours.  Currently I'm giving my youngest Natures Menu Country Hunter Nuggets.  It's handy because my local pet store sells it so I can just get a couple of 1kg bags when required.  Maybe a bit dear but very convenient indeed and being small she doesn't need much. She gets topped up with Gentle which I use for training treats.

I thought I would let you know that I have had delivery problems with a different raw food company. The food was delayed on route due to problems with the courier and arrived today thawed. The company didn't suggest I refreeze and gave me a refund. It would seem not just to be Nutriment which experiences problems.

Well I have ordered some today. She hasn't had any for about 3-4 weeks and I was finishing off some natures menu cubes I had been given. I was shocked to find, she has lost a kilo since last weigh in. I am obviously getting the quantities of NM wrong. I feed the recommended amount for her size but a lot of it seems to go straight through her. Dried peas a plenty. Seems like a waste if they are not getting anything from them. I am hoping it arrives with no problem.

Fingers crossed for your delivery, Tinyplanets. If you normally get your deliveries next day you shouldn't have much of a problem as the food does seem to be OK even if it takes 2 days (with the exception of the smaller Dinner for Dogs trays which defrost more quickly). My problem is that Nutriment's couriers take 2 days at best to deliver to me here, so any delay makes it 3+ days which really is too long for even the bigger trays to remain frozen.

I have repeatedly begged Nutriment to use a different delivery service to me - if Natural Instinct can get food to me in under 24 hours I don't see why they can't - but they simply refuse to try, even though I have said I don't mind paying extra, that I'd be willing to pay almost whatever it takes, they won't listen. Never mind, The Little Cav is doing great on NI.

I just got my delivery a few days ago it took 2 days from order and arrived nicely frozen (though the moo tubes were starting to soften)
Maybe its down to the regional delivery service?

I have been using Nutriment for over a year now and to be honest have never had a problem with delivery it has always been next day. My dogs love the stuff and have never had any problems on it at all. I change all the rescues onto it the day  they get here and again no problems. I like it so much that I have started retailing it as there are no other retailers in my area...as yet.

Gosh, the company is moving on.  It just goes to show how popular raw feeding is becoming.  There are also new, small companies springing up that also specialise in the raw ready meal.  Sounds like it is a burgeoning market.

There was some information about the move,  in the newsletter from nutriment.  From watching sugarfree farm, it looked like the animals are being reared ethically.

I know nutriment had some problems getting some orders out quickly due to a huge increase in demand. They are hoping the move will solve the problems.

It sound like the new range may be suitable for some dogs with health issues. :)

The latest Nutriment newsletter is out and contains details of their new "Laverstoke" organic range.

Thanks for sharing this..........

Based on the info in the newsletter & on the Nutriment website , their new Laverstoke range looks to be top quality.

The organic production & underlying theme is is genuinely impressive.

The normal Nutriment adult foods sits towards the top of our acceptable dog food spending budget. At £4.95 for a 500g tray I regret that I cannot justify buying this....Lab is a lean 25kg & currently has 500g (2% of bodyweight), of the Nutriment Adult food.....sometimes 750g (3%) if needed. I cant justify spending over £150 if feeding 2% of dog weight (£230 if feeding 3% of dog weight), a month to feed just one dog.

i genuinely believe this may be one of the best raw completes available.....quite possibly the best.

Regardless of product quality & production ethics I wil be interested to see what the customer uptake is on this.
