Two pet food manufacturers have announced they are leaving, a US online pet retailer which is being acquired by US pet chain PetSmart.

Champion Petfoods (home to the Orijen and Acana brands) and Fromm Family Foods have told independent retailers that they are pulling their products from, reports the Petfood Industry.

On July 10, Champion said on its Facebook page: “Unfortunately, it’s true – our foods are no longer available through Chewy… For more than 25 years, we’ve been committed to the pet specialty channel. We choose to work exclusively with pet specialists who have intimate knowledge of our foods and are committed to providing expert advice to Pet Lovers.

“Chewy has been a longtime retail partner and we’ve enjoyed our association with them. However, due to their recent acquisition, Chewy no longer meets our pet specialty requirement to be an approved Acana and Orijen retailer.”
