CHAMPION PETFOODS EXPANDS ITS BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE LINEUP OF ACANA SINGLES AND REGIONALS DOG FOODS

New ACANA Diets Incorporate the “Goodness of Grain”

Champion Petfoods, maker of award-winning ACANA and ORIJEN dog and cat foods, has expanded its nutritious lineup of ACANA dog food, introducing four unique Biologically Appropriate formulas. All are complements to the existing ACANA Singles and Regionals lines and are infused with wholesome grains to provide Pet Lovers with more choices.

The new ACANA Singles limited-ingredient dog foods feature 60% duck or lamb ingredients as a single, easily digestible animal protein that's perfect for dogs with sensitivities. They are formulated with WholePrey - meat, organs, and cartilage - which deliver essential nutrition and include whole fresh pumpkin to support digestive health.

The new Regionals foods, available in free-run poultry or wild-caught fish, contain 70% animal ingredients from 4-5 animal protein sources in WholePrey ratios, mirroring your pet’s natural diet. They are also infused with freeze-dry liver, made in our own freeze-dry kitchens, for guaranteed flavor and taste.

All the new diets showcase Champion Petfood’s proprietary blend of essential nutrients and vitamins comprised of seven forms of Vitamin B, Vitamin E, Taurine, and Choline which are widely believed to support heart health.

Formulated to help address food sensitivities and enhance digestibility benefits in healthy dogs, these dog foods are gluten-free, legume-free and made with non-GMO ingredients. Instead they feature regionally sourced wholesome grains (healthy oats and sorghum) that provide a great source of vitamins, minerals and fiber.

The new products are:

  • ACANA Singles
    • ACANA Lamb and Pumpkin Recipe
    • ACANA Duck and Pumpkin Recipe

  • ACANA Regionals
    • ACANA American Waters
    • ACANA Kentucky Farmlands

Don King, Champion’s Vice President of Marketing, noted that, “Today’s Pet Lovers are being inundated with confusing messages about pet foods and their ingredients. With these new formulas, Champion continues to lead the way in providing Pet Lovers with a selection of choices that best meet their individual needs while staying true to our Biologically Appropriate mandate.”

Prepared in Champion’s award-winning DogStar Kitchens, the new ACANA Singles and Regionals formulas will be available at pet specialty retailers nationwide in Fall 2019. To find a local retailer visit: https://acana.com/usa/where-to-buy/.
