Orijen and Acana Pet Foods Differences

While there are many differences between ACANA and ORIJEN, both diets reflect Champion Petfood's belief in “Biologically Appropriateness, and “Fresh Regional Ingredients”.

Five of the main points of difference are summarized below:

  • MEAT CONCENTRATION: ORIJEN is made with 75-80% meat, while ACANA has between 60 to 65%, depending on the formula.
  • PROTEIN: ORIJEN diets range between 38% and 42% protein, while ACANA features protein levels of 32-35%.
  • CARBOHYDRATE: ORIJEN diets range from 20-25% of carbohydrate, while ACANA diets are typically in the 25-28% carbohydrate range.
  • FRESH MEAT VARIETY: ORIJEN features a minimum of 5 fresh meats, compared to ACANA which contains 3 different fresh meat ingredients.

Put simply, Champion Petfoods believes ORIJEN is the best dry dog or cat food worldwide. Although lower in protein and total fresh meat content than ORIJEN, ACANA provides unbeatable value and a price point that makes Biologically Appropriate pet foods accessible to a wide range of pet lovers.
