How Much Does Brit Cat Food Cost?
If you are in the U.S., you can order Brit cat foods from Vivapets.com (in Portugal). The prices for the food are reasonable but the shipping costs tend to be high.
We found Brit Blue Cat Adult Chicken, 8 kg, on the site for $5.96. This food has chicken meal and poultry protein along with maize, rice, corn gluten, and poultry fat so it appears to be a lower quality food than the foods sold in Europe.
In Italy we found 7 kg bags of super premium dry Brit cat food currently selling for around € 51.74. It appears that prices have almost doubled for the super premium foods in the last four years, perhaps due to supply chain issues.
If you live in one of the countries where Brit cat foods are sold, you may find better prices locally.
Overall, Is Brit Cat Food A Good Choice?
Yes, we do think that Brit cat foods are good foods, in general. Brit Care and Brit Premium foods, in particular, look like they have very good formulas. That includes their wet and dry foods.
We do note that Brit is made by a very large company in Europe so they seem to have a range of foods. The Brit Blue Cat food we found with some lower quality ingredients would not be considered a high quality product.
Nutritionally, we would compare Brit dry foods to recipes from popular brands like Purina One or Blue Buffalo. Some of their wet foods are similar to those from Tiki Cat.
