Philosophy/Mission:  Our mission is to make biologically appropriate dog & cat foods with fresh regional ingredients.  Located in the heartland of the Canadian prairies known for its rich black soil, abundant fresh water and vast ranchlands, Champion is perfectly situated for easy access to Western Canada’s finest ingredient — all delivered fresh daily from our trusted local suppliers.

Claim to Fame/Signature Product or Service:  Champion Petfoods is an award-winning, independent Canadian pet food maker with a reputation of trust spanning more than a quarter century.  Our Biologically Appropriate TM philosophy represents a new standard of pet food designed to nourish dogs and cats according to their evolutionary adaptation to meat and protein-rich diets.  Our ingredients are different too.  We focus on sustainably raised local ingredients delivered to our door fresh, never frozen, passed ‘fit for human consumption’ standards and always preservative-free.

Our foods are made exclusively in our award-winning kitchens in Morinville, Alberta, Canada, and certified by the Government of Canada to meet every international pet food standard.  It all starts with our genuine passion for dogs and cats.  It’s with our own pets in mind we designed ACANA & ORIJEN — foods designed to keep our pets healthy, happy and strong.
