NEW YORK – Bobby Flay and his cat companion Nacho from Maine Coon unveiled their cat food portfolio on April 6th.
The new line Made by Nacho is the result of two years of recipe development, testing and tasting. The products were inspired by both cooking and cat experts. Bobby Flay, an American celebrity chef, worked with Katja Lang, DVM and veterinary advisor at Made by Nacho to develop a complete and balanced line of tasty and nutritious cat diets.
“While many know that I’m passionate about cooking, I’m just as passionate about the cats in my life,” said Flay. “Made by Nacho fuses these passions and with Nacho by my side, I am proud to share what we have created. As I influence the recipes, Nacho does the hard work creating the menu and choosing each ingredient.”
Made by Nacho offers wet cat food formulas, dry snack diets and freeze-dried protein treats. The formulas include cage-free chicken, grass-fed beef, and sustainably grown salmon, balanced with pumpkin, cranberries, blueberries, and kale to provide antioxidants and other essential nutrients. The formulas also include millet and oats for extra fiber, as well as prebiotics and probiotics to aid digestive health.
Nachos Moist Cat Food is also formulated with bone broth and provides additional moisture, protein, nutrients and collagen to the diet. All dry cat food formulas contain freeze-dried inclusions from raw chicken.
“Dogs have led research and development at pet food companies long enough, and I look forward to working with Nacho and educating the wider cat community about cat health,” said Lang. “I worked with Nacho to find out what was best for a cat’s diet, from nutritional levels to taste – palatability is critical to cat food.”
Wet cat food formulas include cage-free chicken recipe cuts in sauce, sustainably caught salmon recipe cuts in sauce, and grass-fed, grain-ready beef cuts in sauce. Dry snack diets include cage-free chicken, duck and quail recipes, sustainably caught salmon, white fish and pumpkin recipes, and grass-fed beef, rabbit and pumpkin recipes. The 100% pure freeze-dried protein treats are available in the formulas of Chicken Breast, Alaskan Wild Salmon, Ahi Tuna, Duck Liver and Turkey Offal.
In addition, through the New York Community Trust, Flay and Nacho founded the charitable fund Made by Nacho, which provides grants to the EveryCat Health Foundation and the Best Friends Animal Society.
Made by Nacho products are available for purchase on the brand’s website at www.madebynacho.com and will be available exclusively in PetSmart stores in the US starting April 19th.
