Addiction Foods is the only worldwide pet food manufacturer to use the NZ Brushtail / Possum and Australian kangaroo. The reason is two-fold. In New Zealand, the brushtail possum was introduced in the 20th century from Australia where they became a major pest species. In Australia, farmers and ranchers view the kangaroo as a pest and nuisance that impedes cattle ranching. By using brushtail possum and kangaroo, the Addiction Foods company utilizes two pests to help stabilize a small but important part of the ecology of both countries and create foods which contains higher levels of Omega 3 & Omega 6 fatty acids than other red meats and fish.
