Orijen and Acana Foods Now Made in U.S.
Changes Coming in Orijen and Acana Formulas for Cats and Dogs
If you feed your pet Orijen or Acana there are changes coming that Healthy Pets Northwest wants you to know about. Champion Petfood, maker of both Orijen and Acana, recently completed construction on a new processing plant in Auburn, Kentucky that it calls DogStar® Kitchens. All of the Orijen and Acana formulas available in the U.S. will soon be made in the new facility. Because of Champion's commitment to regional sourcing, all of its U.S. pet food formulas will be changing.
What Kind of Changes Can You Expect?
Here at Healthy Pets Northwest, we have been reviewing the formula changes and here are some of the things we found:
Higher meat, fish and egg content, depending on the type of food. For example, the new Orijen Six Fish for cats is made up of 90% wild-caught fish from sustainable sources.
Different combinations of meats and fish because of regional U.S. sourcing. For example, Pacific salmon is replaced with Atlantic mackerel and herring.
More whole food nutrition with only one to three vitamin or mineral supplements depending on the formula.
Expanded Acana line with Regional formulas, Singles formulas for food sensitive pets and new Heritage formulas.
Several Acana Regional formulas will be renamed, such as Acana Ranchlands to Appalachian Ranch and Pacifica to Wild Atlantic, to reflect the new U.S. regional ingredient sourcing.
Look for the new Orijen and Acana formulas to start showing up on our shelves as they arrive from Champion's DogStar Kitchens. If you have any questions, please stop in to one of our stores and talk with our staff. We will be glad to answer any questions you have about the new Orijen and Acana products now made in the USA.
