Made by Nacho offers flavorful and nutritious cat food created by Nacho Flay, who grew up knowing exactly what a gourmet meal looks like, thanks to his dad, Chef Bobby Flay.
PHOENIX, April 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — PetSmart is serving up a delicious new brand of cat food, Made by Nacho, that offers chef-inspired flavors with premium ingredients, exclusively for felines, from the kitchen of Bobby and Nacho Flay.
Starting today, PetSmart is the only retail home of Made by Nacho. Chef Bobby Flay developed the premium cat food with the help of his Maine Coon cat, Nacho – who taste-tested every bite. The duo’s ultimate goal: to create a tasty and nutritious menu of dry food, wet food and freeze-dried treats for Nacho and all his feline friends. The premium cat-crafted cat food features thoughtfully sourced ingredients, paw-selected by Nacho to please cats’ unique palates and support their overall health.
“As the exclusive retail partner for Made by Nacho, we are thrilled to bring the new line to cat-lovers everywhere,” said Kristin Shane, senior vice president of merchandising for PetSmart. “It’s clear that Bobby’s love of cats was influential in creating this line of premium cat food, and as fellow cat-lovers, we knew this partnership was a natural fit.”
When developing Made by Nacho, Nacho enlisted the help of his very own veterinarian, Dr. Katja Lang, to provide insights on the flavors and ingredients that benefit the unique nutritional needs of cats. All recipes feature real animal protein as their primary ingredient, from sustainably-caught salmon to cage-free chicken and grass-fed beef. One standout ingredient in Made by Nacho’s recipes is bone broth, which provides flavorful nutrients and collagens in all recipes, while also bringing extra hydration in the wet foods. Fruits and vegetables like pumpkin, cranberries, blueberries and kale are added to support immune health, alongside millet and oats for fiber to support digestive health.
“It’s no secret that I’m incredibly passionate about my cats and how they get nourished,” Bobby Flay said. “That’s why I helped Nacho create new recipes with premium, high quality ingredients that focus on taste and nutrition. We’re thrilled and excited to partner with PetSmart to bring Made by Nacho to life.”
Made by Nacho is now available at PetSmart stores and on petsmart.com, plus pet parents can get same day delivery of Made by Nacho from PetSmart on petsmart.com, powered by DoorDash.
