We’re a young company with a long past, and a small team with a big heart. Here, we share the story of how it all began…

chapter 1

a friendship

Blossoms

Back in 2004, Louis and Koen met at university. Sharing a love of beer, games and girls, they soon became good friends. Despite playing noughts and crosses during their lectures, they both dreamed of becoming entrepreneurs.

chapter 2

a pet shaped

problem

Fast forward ten years, Louis and Koen often met up to talk about jobs, families and – inevitably – their dogs, Edgard and Cooper. But they shared a complaint: the pet food they were buying wasn’t making their dogs very happy or healthy.

chapter 3

being the

change

The two friends decided to take a closer look at the world of dog food and were shocked by what they found. Surely there was another way…? And so Edgard & Cooper (the idea, at least) was born!

chapter 4

mission

possible

Louis and Koen wanted Edgard & Cooper to be different. That meant delicious, healthy dog food that played nice with nature. The kind of pet food that Louis, Koen, Edgard and Cooper could all feel good about.

01

A different path

When Louis and Koen first asked suppliers to try a recipe using fresh meat (plus fruit, vegetables and herbs), everyone said it couldn’t be done.

02

Persistence pays off

Louis and Koen worked hard to find a solution, partnering with a university for support. 2.5 years later, they finally found the right combination of ingredients and partners.

03

The perfect recipe

Today, we use lots of fresh, natural ingredients, and slow cook them to preserve flavour and nutrition. And we source from the best suppliers – local where possible, and with similar values.

chapter 5

an idea was

born

With the recipe sorted, Louis and Koen committed to building a sustainable business with a legacy they could be proud of. That’s where our 100% biodegradable kibble bags come in, and our promise to always give 10% of our profits to charity.

chapter 6

the moment of

truth

There was one final test to pass… the Edgard and Cooper test. That first bowl of food (and each one since), has earned their paw of approval. Even better, Edgard stopped getting sick and is now one of the healthiest dogs around.

chapter 7

then there were

five

In 2016, Louis and Koen were joined by Jurgen – a friend and sales whizz who left his job in New York to help his old chums do something amazing. That meant the team now had more humans than dogs… just.

chapter 8

ready for

launch

With everything ready to go, Louis, Jurgen and Koen bit the bullet and ordered 300,000 meals in one go - without having any customers! (Truth be told, they were a little scared they’d have to eat the food themselves.)

chapter 8

happily

ever after

Today, business is good. With 30 humans and 8 dogs, Edgard & Cooper is growing fast: we’re selling healthy, tasty pet food in 12 countries and – due to popular demand – we now make cat food too. We’re working hard towards our sustainability goals and we’re looking for new dog and cat charities to support.
