Champion, through its Orijen and Acana brands, makes “biologically-appropriate” pet foods that are intended to be as close as possible to what animals would eat in the wild. From humble beginnings, they now have approximately 500 employees in Alberta, Ontario and Kentucky.
Apparently Nestle is negotiating to buy a controlling stake in the company, so they may not be Canadian-owned for long.
