FRESH & RAW, THE ACANA WAY
In an industry known for liberal ingredient descriptions, they believe it’s important to be clear with pet lovers on what an ingredient is or isn’t. When they say fresh they mean it. They define fresh or raw as:
FRESH: Fresh ingredients meet the AAFCO standard: REFRIGERATION AS THE SOLE METHOD OF PRESERVATION.
RAW: AAFCO offers a variety of raw definitions, they use only one. RAW INGREDIENTS ARE AS THEIR FRESH, THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THEY ARE FROZEN.
