🐶 A bit about us.

At Butternut, we put the food back into dog food. We believe dogs deserve to eat the healthiest, most natural and tastiest food with none of the nasties. That’s why we make freshly prepared dog food. Cooked like you would at home. Delivered in perfect portions.

Located in Doncaster, Rudie's Kitchen will be the place where all the magic happens, so to speak. It's where our tasty Butternut meals and treats will be gently cooked, using human-quality ingredients because, the way we see it, you wouldn't serve food to dogs that you wouldn't be happy to eat yourself. At Butternut, we believe dogs deserve better, and if that's something you think too, we want to hear from you.

Our goal is to help dogs live healthier, happier and longer lives whilst leaving humans smiling after every interaction. We’ve come a long way since our co-founders (Kev & Dave) hand-delivered the first Butternut Box, we now feed a lot of dogs across the UK - but we want to feed dogs everywhere. And to do this, we need a team of brilliant people who share that ambition to come and work with us.


🙌 A bit about what we offer.

  • 25 days holiday (plus 8 bank holidays throughout the year which will be given in lieu if scheduled to work)
  • £500 personal learning & development budget
  • Butternut Box employee discount
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Pension with NEST
  • Private Medical Insurance with Vitality
