I saw this e-mail from Champion on another forum:

Quote:
We are coming out with some new ACANA formulas, the first is Duck & Bartlett Pear, it is a single source protein consisting of duck meat, duck fat and duck liver. The protein level is 25%. The other formula is Lamb & Apple which again is a single source protein consisting of lamb and the protein percentage is also 25%.

These new formulas will be available for purchase by the end of November.

By "new" I assume they mean to the states, since Lamb & Apple isn't new here. But if you guys get the LIDs, that would be spiffy!

As far as I know, AAFCO has NOT changed their labeling of Milk Thistle, meaning this food will NOT be in stores in the US. Plus, if we were getting them, I'm pretty sure our rep would have mentioned it, since he is in our store a lot and was basically beating down the door to get Ranchlands on our shelves.

The guy from Zeus was at our store yesterday, and he said that we would most likely be getting the THREE new formulas. It's a completely seperate, brand-new line, different from the Classic and the Grain-Free.

Way to drop the ball on Blaine Tom.
That is AWESOME though. Any ideas what protein sources they will be or what makes them different from the GF (other than being GF?)

It was duck, lamb, and...something else. I can't remember. They're going to be grain-inclusive, single source protein, and a different ratio then the 60/40.

And he came for our store meeting, so I'm sure he didn't forget about you.

I've been told that they are coming out with Duck & Bartlett Pear, are changing the Lamb & Apple's name to Lamb & Okanagan Apple, and are replacing Adult with Chicken & Burbank Potato.

^ Beat me to it.

Here in Canada, the Lamb & Apple isn't new, and the Chicken & Burbank Potato is a slightly modified version of the Acana Classic Adult formula. The Duck & Bartlett Pear is the only true new formula for both regions,a nd it's coming out in December IIRC. All three are being re-packaged under the Acana Singles line.

I'm assuming they're removing the milk thistle that was originally in these formulas which allows them to be sold in the States! It's about time.
