Sourcing And Manufacturing
Part of Anifit’s web site with detailed information is not available in English. From what we can tell, the company uses 100 percent human grade meat ingredients. They strictly ban animal meals, vegetable flours, preservatives, colorants, flavor enhancers, added flavors, sugar and any other harmful chemical substances. They use no bulking agents and no added fat; no meat and bone meal; no soya; no maize. They only use gluten-free ingredients.
Along with premium quality ingredients, the brand has strict quality controls. Anifit is certified under IFS (International Food Standard) – Bavaria; ISO 22000 (Management of food safety) – Sweden; and ISO 9001 (Quality Management) and organic regulations. Food is inspected by auditors of TÜV and BCS ÖKÖ Garantie GmbH (DE-ÖKO-001).
Anifit meals contain a high percentage of fresh meat (90-95 percent), supplemented with vegetables and other natural ingredients. They only use raw ingredients. The meat is fit for human consumption.
Meals are gently prepared using the cold filling method. They are preserved only by gentle heat treatment. The products are made in Sweden, a country where animal welfare is a high priority and animal disease is rare. We are not able to ascertain where all of the ingredients are obtained but it sounds like the meats are raised in Sweden.
Meals are complete diets. Some reviewers have rated Anifit as the best dog food in Europe though we didn’t find cat food reviews.

What Do Customers Think of Anifit Cat Food?
The only place we could find any customer reviews for Anifit was on the brand web site. That’s not ideal since it’s possible the company could delete negative comments. Most of the comments are also in German. Here are some of the comments we found.
We didn’t find any negative reviews on the Anifit web site. We couldn’t find other Anifit reviews online.
How Much Does Anifit Cat Food Cost?
Anifit is expensive. They use animal proteins that are fit for human consumption and all of their foods have more than 95 percent meat and fish protein. These are the most expensive ingredients in any pet foods. Some of their foods are freeze-dried so the packaging can appear small or lightweight but that’s because most of the moisture has been removed. When the food is rehydrated, it will provide plenty of food for your cat.
On the Anifit web site, most of the wet foods are sold in packages of six. A pack of six 200-gram tins costs €16.62; six 400-gram tins costs €21.66; and six 810-gram tins costs €28.02. It is cost effective to buy more if possible.
There is more of a range in price for the BARF foods. The Easy BARF Lamb Hearts (one package, 350 grams) costs €25.40. Other freeze-dried BARF supplemental foods come in slightly different sizes and prices.
Most of the treats and snacks range between 25-50 grams for one package. One package of the freeze-dried shrimp treats (15 grams) costs €5.70.
Overall, Is Anifit Cat Food A Good Choice?
We are happy to recommend Anifit’s wet foods, supplemental BARF foods, and treats. The ingredients appear to be first rate. Anifit even provides a nutritionist to speak to you, if you wish, when you order your cat’s food to make sure you are getting exactly the food you need for your cat.
Anifit invites you to arrange a free trial meal for your cat (or dog) to see if your pet likes the food. They will call you personally to get your cat’s details and set it up.
We do wish we had been able to find a wider variety of customer reviews, including any negative reviews.
