Our Story

Jim & Dacia Kearns & family own Nutri Life Pet Products and started the company in 2003 in Huntley, Illinois.

For 20 years, Jim Kearns built a reputation as a respected full line pet food distributor and made many industry wide relationships with pet food manufactures, retail stores, and breeders. Jim was always interested in providing the pet owner with a naturally preserved pet food containing the highest quality USA sourced ingredients. He responded to the consumers needs by creating Nutri Life Pet Products, “Holistic Nutrition for Life”.
Keeping to Jim’s vision, the seven all life stage formulas contain top quality, locally sourced ingredients of fresh meats, vegetables, and fruits; all grown and produced in the USA. Keeping to the all natural theme of “Holistic Nutrition for Life”; Nutri Life formulas contain no corn, no wheat, no soy, and no egg or milk products, and is naturally preserved with mixed tocopherols. A grain free line is also available in three different formulas; Chicken, Fish, and Pork.

Jim’s vision became reality at the family kitchen table with Dacia creating the name Nutri Life Pet Products and designing the logo and packaging.


Nutri Life Pet Products proudly provides for your dogs needs with the integrity of a family owned company, and manufactured at a USDA inspected plant in Wisconsin.

Why do the bags look like they are vacuumed packed?

This is a function of the valve on the bag. The valve is a one way valve designed to let air out but not in. Our bags are stacked on pallets for distribution and bags closer to bottom of the pallet release more air due to the weight of the bags on top of them. Changes in temperature and atmospheric pressure will also cause a change to the air in the bag which can cause air to build up in the bag and once released it creates a natural vacuum.
