Surrounded by Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic oceans and home to vast clean, cold freshwater lakes, Canada’s marine harvest is perfectly suited to the Orijen philosophy of Biologically appropiate pet foods from fresh regional ingredients.
Bursting with wild-caught fish (minimum 75%) to optimally nourish cats and kittens of all breeds, Orijen 6 Fish features six regional species including Chinook, Coho and Sockeye salmon, Northern Lake Whitefish, lake trout, Northern walleye, freshwater cod and pacific herring - delivered to Orijen's fresh (never frozen, no preservatives and passed fit for human consumption).
Infused with fresh (not rendered) marine-source Omega-3 essential fatty acids, Orijen 6 Fish is especially rich in EPA and DHA to support peak conditioning and a vibrant skin and hair coat - your cat’s outer symbol of health and vitality.
Grain-free and low-carbohydrate, Orijen contains a full compliment of regional fruits and vegetables including sweet and russet potatoes, sun-cured alfalfa, black currants and sunflower from local farms, and apples and cranberries from the interior orchards.
Sea vegetables, hand-harvested from Canada’s North Pacific tidal range - including kelp, Irish moss, dulse and bladder wrack - are a rich, natural source of essential B vitamins, trace elements and important phytonutrients.
Mirroring the instinct to forage for medicinal grasses and weeds, Orijen's botanicals include chicory and licorice root, sweet fennel, calendula flowers and peppermint leaf - all of which replicate the natural diet, helping nourish the digestive tract and strengthen the liver.
Available in 5.5 lb. and 15.4 lb. bags.
About Champion Petfoods, maker of ORIJEN
Unlike the marketing and multinational companies that sell (but don't actually make) today's commercial pet foods, Champion Petfoods stands apart as a family-owned and -operated pet food maker with a 25 year tradition of quality.

As each cat and kitten is different, and so feeding requirements always vary with size, environment, age and activity. Feed twice daily and always keep fresh, clean water available.
