Lynn is our Vice President of Research and Development at Freshpet, part of the team helping to create all of our delicious foods and treats. She’s written our blog this week to share a bit more about her role on the team (and her fur balls):
I am a food geek and playing with food is what I do best! I am indeed lucky to have a fun and exciting job here at Freshpet. How so? I am glad you asked. My days are never the same. It’s always something different and exhilarating. You can tell it’s been a good day when I come home smelling like yummy treats and my furbabies are all over me purring! Some days I scrutinize through ingredients, breaking each down molecule by molecule to find out the functionality of them. Other days I research hot new food trends in both the foods we eat and in pet food. My goal is to make sure we are feeding your pets delicious recipes made from fresh, safe, and beneficial ingredients.
My two picky-eater furbabies, Phoenix and Orion, are my taste testers at home. They get paid with fresh food. Those two co-worker cats take their jobs very seriously when it comes to taste-testing. I know what we’ve made is really good when they head-dive into the food bowl and proceed to smack their lips when it’s all done. Other days I get the “what is this that you’re trying to feed me?” quizzed look. Did you know that cats are some of the pickiest eaters? If my cats could talk, I bet you they would tell you some of the interesting tasting stories they’ve experienced.
