Our delicious, grain free recipes use the finest ingredients available. Naturally, all our foods are free of artificial flavours, colours or preservatives. If it isn’t good enough for humans it isn’t good enough for our pets, that’s why we try every one of our recipes ourselves!

We carefully select our ingredients from trusted suppliers to ensure that every batch of our food meets the highest standards of taste and nutrition.

WHAT IS BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE?

Traditionally dog and cat foods have sacrificed nutritional value by using cheaper, less nutritionally accessible ingredients.

Our nutritionists have looked carefully at the dietary needs of cats and dogs to produce a food which more closely mimics your pet's ancestral diet with the correct ratio of meat protein and fat to carbohydrate and a much higher meat content than most.

WHY GO GRAIN FREE?

Dogs and cats are highly adapted to eat meat. Like all carnivores, they find it more difficult to digest grains. This is highlighted because they don't have the enzyme called amylase in their saliva, which helps to break down these starchy carbohydrates. We have eliminated all the grain from our recipe to create a food that is high in meat which matches as closely as possible their natural food.

SUPPORTING INDEPENDENT RETAILERS

We are proud to support your local pet shop! Canagan only supply local independent retailers,
that’s why you won’t find our products in supermarkets, convenience stores or online only retailers.

Local pet stores have a level of knowledge, care and service that cannot be matched elsewhere, that’s why we won’t supply anyone else. In fact, this core principle to only supply independent stores stems from our founder, Edward Milbourne’s history as a shop keeper!

He saw the negative effect on his business when the products he stocked became available in supermarkets. He realised that for independent stores like his to be successful they needed to support brands that only support them in return. When Eddie realised that there were not any brands out there with this strategy, he started his own! That’s why we will always stand by our commitment to only supply local pet stores. Always.

Canagan team and retailers

Piers Smart, Scampers Natural Pet Store

“We have worked with Symply Pet Foods since they first launched and have always appreciated their commitment to independent pet specialty superstores like ours. Specialist Natural Pet retailers need to support brands like Canagan that are exclusive to our channel which in turn helps to protect our business. Symply Pet Foods with their high quality ingredients were a huge help to Scampers when we made the decision to delist all pet foods manufactured by the giant food corporations. They remain an integral part of our business and long term strategy. Most importantly they are really good dog and cat foods!”

Scott Hendry, Natural World Pets

“We have worked with Symply Pet Foods for many years and really appreciate their commitment to independent pet specialty superstores like ours. In my opinion it is fundamental for pet retailers to support brands like Canagan that are exclusive to our channel which in turn helps to protect our business.”
