Cats everywhere, listen up. Made by Nacho, a cat food for the modern cat brings better taste, as well as high-quality nutrition for your feline friends and cat companions. Developed by Nacho Flay, a Maine Coon Cat who grew up with 24/7 access to his dad, Chef Bobby Flay, the Made by Nacho menu prioritizes an equal focus on feline-specific taste and nutrition with a menu of wet and dry food and treats.
While Made by Nacho is chef-inspired, Nacho also tapped his lifelong veterinarian, Dr. Katja Lang, to craft a menu that delivers the balanced nutrition cats need. Dr. Lang provides invaluable insights on flavor combinations that please a cat’s palate and the ingredients that help cats live long and happy lives.
“Dogs have led R&D at pet food companies for long enough, and I’m excited to team up with Nacho and educate the larger feline community on cat health,” said Dr. Katja Lang, DVM and Veterinary Consultant at Made by Nacho. “I’ve worked with Nacho to identify what is best for feline diets, starting with nutritional content, all the way down to flavor - because palatability is essential to a cat’s food,” added Dr. Lang.
Cats are carnivores, which is why Made by Nacho’s menu leads with cage-free chicken, grass-fed beef and sustainably-caught salmon. To balance these proteins, fruits and vegetables like pumpkin, cranberries, blueberries and kale are added, bringing in a dose of antioxidants and immune bolstering benefits. And the secret ingredient? Bone broth. It provides a concentration of protein, flavorful nutrients, and collagen to all recipes and extra hydration in the wet food recipes. To round out Made by Nacho’s menu, millet and oats are added for fiber, in addition to pre and probiotics for digestive health. Made by Nacho is made in the USA with the world’s finest ingredients.
Furthering his mission to help cats everywhere, Nacho and his team initiated the Made by Nacho Charitable Fund at the New York Community Trust. At launch, the fund has made grants to EveryCat Health Foundation - an organization that advances feline health by supporting groundbreaking research and education - and Best Friends Animal Society - a leading national animal welfare organization dedicated to saving pets in shelters all across America.
Made by Nacho is now available to consumers via madebynacho.com. Beginning April 19, Made by Nacho will also be available at PetSmart, its exclusive retail partner. PetSmart customers will find Made by Nacho products on store shelves, nationwide, and on PetSmart.com.
