More About Chippin:

Chippin is a woman-owned business reimagining the way we source proteins. We ditch the resource intensive options that cause allergies in our four-legged family members. Instead, we feature hypoallergenic, superfood proteins—cricket, spirulina, and silver carp (an overpopulated fish). With Chippin, pawrents can nourish their pups while restoring biodiversity.
