05 Dec Acana
OUR MISSION IS CLEAR AND STRONG
We make Biologically Appropriate dog and cat foods from Fresh Regional Ingredients and we make them from start to finish in our very own award-winning kitchens.
Our mission represents a new standard in pet food, designed to nourish your dog and cat in two ways. First, according to its natural evolution to a meat and protein-rich diet. Second, using meats, poultry, eggs and fish that are sustainably ranched, farmed or fished by local suppliers and delivered to our kitchens fresh or raw.
We think you’ll love ACANA. More importantly, we think your dogs and cats will too.
A NEW CLASS OF MEAT-BASED FOODS TO MIRROR THE EVOLUTIONARY DIET.
The gray wolf is the ancestor of all domestic dogs. The Eastern wildcat is the ancestor of all domestic cats. And while years of breeding have produced hundreds of ‘different looking wolves and wildcats’, the internal workings of dogs and cats remain unchanged.
The eating anatomy of modern dogs and cats is the same as their wild cousins, so it’s no surprise that their food requirements remain consistent.
THE BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE CONCEPT IS SIMPLE: MIRROR THE QUANTITY, FRESHNESS AND VARIETY OF MEATS THAT NATURE EVOLVED DOGS AND CATS TO EAT.
ACANA’s richly nourishing meat inclusions mirror your pet’s evolutionary diet, excluding high-glycemic carbohydrates, vegetable proteins, synthetic additives and anything else that Mother Nature didn’t intend your dog or cat to eat.
FRESH REGIONAL INGREDIENTS
INGREDIENTS WE LOVE. PEOPLE WE TRUST.
Western Canada’s foothill farms, fertile prairies and cold clear waters are our source of both inspiration and fresh regional ingredients.
Unmatched by any pet food maker, our unmatched variety of authentically fresh regional ingredients mirrors the natural diet, supplying nutrients in their freshest, most natural form.
From cage-free poultry, nest-laid eggs, ranch-raised meats and wild-caught fish to sun-ripened fruits & vegetables, our fresh ingredients are raised locally, passed fit for human consumption, and then delivered to our kitchens fresh, preservative-free and loaded with goodness.
Equipped with state-of-the-art fresh food processing technologies, our award-winning NorthStar kitchens are located in the center of Alberta’s dynamic agricultural community, providing access to specialty farmers with whom we partner to advance our fresh regional ingredient mission.
AWARD-WINNING FOODS. AWARD-WINNING KITCHENS.
We’re as passionate about making food as we are about our pets. That’s why we’ve been preparing ACANA in our award-winning kitchens for over a quarter century.
We prepare ACANA foods and treats ourselves, with fresh ingredients from trusted local farmers, ranchers and fishermen. We oversee every detail of food preparation, from where our ingredients come from, to every cooking, quality and food safety process.
