Diamond Dog Food Review

Diamond Pet Food is a brand that is committed to providing pets with premium quality food at an affordable price. The company has tried to uphold this commitment and their dog food is one of the most preferred among pet owners. Diamond Dog Food has established itself as one of the leading dog food manufacturers in the country.

Diamond Dog Food is manufactured in the US and all products go through stringent quality checks. To maintain the quality of the food, Diamond uses only the finest ingredients; high-quality animal protein and superfoods. Under the Diamond Pet Food banner there are three main brands which together provide a range of products for dogs of every age, size and breed. They also have products for special food preferences.

Diamond Company Overview

Diamond Pet Food was established in 1970 and is owned by Schell and Kampeter. Diamond Pet Food is headquartered in Meta, Missouri and started off as a producer of livestock feed and dog food. Back then dog food production was only a small operation of the business and constituted only 5% of total production. Distribution was also limited to within a 100-mile radius around the center of operations. 

Over the years Diamond expanded by adding more products and acquiring more manufacturing plants in different locations across the country. The three dog food brands; Diamond, Diamond Naturals and Diamond Naturals Grain-Free ensure that no matter what food preference your dog has, you will find the right choice. 

Diamond Dog Food has had a few recalls over the years including:

  • 2005 recall of products for the Gaston, South Carolina manufacturing plant because of possible contamination by aflatoxin.
  • April 2012 recall of dry food products because of possible contamination by salmonella.
  • May 2012 recall of dry food products also because of possible salmonella contamination.

The recalls might have affected the ratings of Diamond Dog Food which is presently around 3-3.5 stars.
