About us

The company behind bewi cat®

bewi cat® has a long tradition. It is produced by Bewital petfood in Germany. bewi cat® stands for reliable quality and excellent value for money. “BEWI” comes from the initials of Bernhard Wigger, who founded the family firm in 1963 and who has been working with pet food and animal feed ever since.

The second generation has since taken over and the company is currently run by his son, Dr Jürgen Wigger, and daughter, Ulrike Petershagen.

Every day, vets and nutritionists work on developing the best recipes. These form the basis for procuring high-quality ingredients, including poultry, fish, rice, fats, minerals and vitamins. The ingredients come from inspected companies, with preference given to local firms. Following a further incoming control in our own laboratory, the ingredients are mixed according to the recipe and then steamed to retain their sensitive nutrients and natural flavours.


What kind of meat is used in our food?

All the meat products we use come from animals that are also approved for human food production.


How do we ensure the safety of our bewi cat® cat food?

In addition to the legal requirements, we have developed our own standards to ensure that all our raw materials – from procurement to processing and packaging – are of the highest quality.


Environmental and animal protection are important for us

We would like to feed our food to animals in a healthy way – but also protect our environment in the process. Therefore we pay particular attention, in production, administration and sales, to work in a sustainable way:

  • We use raw materials and energy sparingly and take waste for recycling.
  • We administer an internal company suggestion plan to improve environmental management.
  • We are actively involved in animal welfare and support a number of animal welfare projects.
