Is Bil-Jac Pet Food Made in USA?

Jack and Bill Kelly were raised on a farm in the 1920s and developed a passion for animals. Both brothers served in World War II. Bill's boot camp had a kennel with German Shepherds. Bill took the dogs' poor treatment and malnutrition seriously and built them up to be able to fulfill their bomb-sniffing duties in good health.

The brothers remained passionate about animal care after the war and decided to improve nutrition in dog food. They started to explore what they could do. They founded Bil-Jac, a company that produced high-quality dog food for a fair price in 1947.

Bil-Jac was the first to create dog food that wasn't gluten-based but was meat-based. In the beginning, they provided frozen dog food. This practice was continued until 1980 when they discovered a dry formula that could pass their stringent quality testing. The company has been in operation for over 70 years and consumers can feel confident that the products are of high quality.

Bil-Jac is proud to produce dog food with a lot of chicken. Bil Jac dog food is a great choice for those who don't like poultry. The large amount of chicken in it makes it high in protein and doesn't contain any fillers or additives. It is high-quality dog food because it contains many natural vitamins and minerals. Is everything made in America? We dug in. We came up with this verdict.

Is Bil-Jac Pet Food made in the USA?

Bil-Jac dry pet foods are all made and cooked in the USA. The majority of the ingredients used in Bil-Jac's dry pet food are domestically sourced. Bil-Jac's headquarters is in Medina (Ohio) and another in Berlin (Maryland). Bil-Jac's wet dog food doesn't come from the USA, it comes from Thailand.

Our research shows that Bil-Jac goes above and beyond to source their dry dog food ingredients. This is something you won't find very often with other pet food manufacturers. To make a 30-pound bag, they use 25 pounds of fresh poultry. This adds up quickly. Bil-Jac buys 60 million pounds of chicken and organs from local businesses every year within 30 minutes of their Berlin plant.

Their wet dog food is different. Bil-Jac staff member confirmed that the wet dog food was made in Thailand. That is why I wouldn't eat that kind of food.

Another thing to be aware of is that Bil-Jac has international distribution facilities in countries such as Australia, Canada Chile, Costa Rica Israel, Japan, Malaysia and Mexico. Although we couldn't find any evidence they source their ingredients from these countries, they do sell their products worldwide.
