What is Chhurpi?

Chhurpi or Churpi is considered to be the world’s hardest cheese. Chhurpi are hand-crafted in the Himalayas using a centuries-old recipe. Produced from the milk of yaks and cows with a dash of lime juice and salt. The Chhurpi are smoked and sun-dried for extra hardness and flavour.

What makes our Chhurpi eco-friendly?

0% plastic in our packaging. Each Chhurpi Dog Chew has a card label attached with a piece of jute string. The chews are distributed to our retailers in thin card boxes. And guess what, these boxes come to us in larger cardboard boxes. All of the card and cardboard used can be recycled, or reused and then recycled. Jute is 100% biodegradable and can also be recycled.

Unsurprisingly, 0% plastic was really important to us. Some retailers are currently selling yak milk chews in thick plastic sealed bags and there is absolutely no need to do this!

0% waste was also important to us; every single bit of the chew is used. Once your dog has enjoyed the chew, take the remaining small end piece and place it in a microwave on high for 30 to 60 seconds until it puffs up. Allow to cool completely, then give it back to your dog to finish as a treat!

Do Chhurpi need to be made in the Himalayas? 

I’ve weighed up all the options related to importing a product from so far away, and the answer is yes they do! 

Yaks live in the Himalayas. Unfortunately, chews made solely of cow’s milk would not be as tasty. I thought about importing yak’s milk and manufacturing the chews here in the UK, but the finished chews actually weigh less than the milk required to make them. The chews lose a lot of moisture when they are dried so it is better for the environment to import them pre-made. If anyone has any yaks in the UK producing surplus milk please let me know.

In scenarios like this, it is important to remember that we cannot live completely green lifestyles but that we can be eco-conscious. Eco-swaps in our day to day lives will make a difference.

Where can I buy Chhurpi Dog Chews?

First time order. Beautifully packaged, and addressed personally to the pets the items were for.A very personal touch inside the box with the treats, a little gift card to the pets. Lovely natural treats, which the dogs wanted there and then. Will order again. Great gift idea too for something different.

Very quick delivery, packaged well and with some thought. Treat are great quality and reasonable size.
I tried this company as an alternative to another mainstream company for veggie chews, works out a little bit more expensive but that is for postage and I do get a few more, even though they are smaller. Plus supporting an independent business.

I’m writing this review now because my dog has just been upstairs looking for his new favourite toy! He absolutely loves it! Plus it’s standing up really well to being chewed and played with everyday. I will definitely be buying from Eco Pets again. 😊
