🐶 A bit about us. 

At Butternut, the mission is to deliver health and happiness to dogs and their humans all over the world. In order to do just that, we need a squad of forward-thinking, driven people who love dogs as much as we do. And we need quite a big kitchen too. Which is precisely why we have built one.

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

Butternut has come a long way since Kev & Dave (co-founders) hand-delivered the first Butternut Box, and we are now looking for brilliant people to join the team for this next part of the story.

Are you up for the challenge?
