Sourcing and Manufacturing
We didn’t find a FAQ section on the Life’s Abundance web site. Nor did we find any current information about who makes their cat foods or where they are made.
Since Life’s Abundance is a marketing company and doesn’t specialize in pet foods, they do appear to use another company (or companies) to make their pet foods (called “co-packing”). According to information from 2019, their dry foods were manufactured at that time by Ohio Pet Foods, located in Ohio, and their sister company, Southern Tier, located in New York. Both of these companies have outstanding reputations for making quality premium pet foods.
Since that time, both Ohio Pet Foods and Southern Tier have become part of BrightPet Nutrition Group. Other brands manufactured for companies by BrightPet include Blackwood, Adirondack, By Nature, and Stewart. Other foods manufactured by BrightPet may be private label and undisclosed.
According to Life’s Abundance, they routinely monitor the production of their foods to ensure that they meet their exacting standards.

What Do Customers Think of Life’s Abundance Cat Food?
There are many positive reviews for Life’s Abundance cat foods online. It’s hard to tell how many of them are from customers that are unaffiliated with the company.
We feel reassured that with Life’s Abundance (which came to us highly recommended) our two cats receive good tasting and healthy nutrition. For reasons best known to them, neither cat seems to like wet food (!), so Life’s Abundance is their primary, no, only source of good, grain free, nutrition. – Steve Bulb Buyer, reviewing Life’s Abundance Cat Food
4 out of 5 of my cats think this is the best dry food in the house now, and the 5th thinks it’s the second best. Quality ingredients I can feel good about feeding. I started with just a 2 pound bag, but I’m back for the 15 pound bag now. Good thing shipping is quick! – Jeanna Champion, reviewing Life’s Abundance Cat Food
My two boys like this sometimes, sometimes not. – Dana Radell, reviewing Life’s Abundance Cat Food
