The Edgard & Cooper story
a friendship blossoms
Back in 2004, Louis and Koen met at university. Sharing a love of beer & games, they soon became good friends. Despite playing noughts and crosses during their lectures, they both dreamed of becoming entrepreneurs.
making the change
The two friends decided to take a closer look at the world of dog food and were shocked by what they found. Surely there was another way…? And that's why Edgard & Cooper (the idea, at least) was born!
The perfect recipe
Today, we make our food with lots of fresh, natural ingredients, and gently cook them to preserve nutrition & maximise flavour. And we source from the best suppliers – local where possible, and with similar values.
an idea was born
With the recipe sorted, Louis and Koen committed to building a sustainable business with a legacy they could be proud of. That’s where our easy-to-recycle packaging comes in, and our promise to always give 1% of our sales to charity.
the moment of truth
There was one final test to pass… the Edgard and Cooper test. That first bowl of food (and each one since), has earned their paw of approval. Even better, Edgard stopped getting sick and is now one of the healthiest dogs around.
Ready for launch
With everything ready to go, Louis, Jurgen and Koen bit the bullet and ordered 300,000 meals in one go - without having any customers! (Truth be told, they were a little scared they’d have to eat the food themselves.)
happily ever after
Today, business is good. With over 200 humans and countless furry friends, Edgard & Cooper is growing fast: we’re selling healthy, tasty pet food in 13 countries and – due to popular demand – we now make cat food too. We’re working hard towards our sustainability goals and - through the Edgard & Cooper Foundation - we’re supporting amazing dog and cat charities across the globe.
