What's In This $300 Cat Food?
Green Pantry serves up “the world’s most expensive cat food.”
Would you ever feed your cat arenkha caviar? How about organic asparagus? If you’re nodding along, Green Pantry’s British Banquet cat food might be for you or your store. But for a price. “The world’s most expensive cat food”—a company-dubbed “feat”—goes for more than $300 for a 4.5-pound bag. Some folks spend less on cat food in an entire year.
Green Pantry is a rural British dog and cat food company that boasts all natural luxury products. Interested parties must email Green Pantry about the food; it can’t be purchased online.
If you’re buying just three bags of British Banquet a month—which might be skimping, depending on the cat—you’re already spending almost $11,000 a year on cat food alone.
British Banquet was birthed from a demand from the wealthy that Simon Booth, co-founder and managing director of Green Pantry, noticed, according to the Daily Mail.
“[It’s] for those few insanely rich pet owners to whom money is no object,” he says, naming celebrities and CEOs as some of British Banquet’s target demographics.
Other ingredients in British Banquet include line-caught Scottish salmon, hand-caught Norfolk lobster, locally-sourced Devon crab, quinoa and saffron for that “extra touch of luxury and refinement.”
The rest of Green Pantry’s products are more reasonable—around $16 for a 3 pound bag of turkey, grain free cat food, around $30 for a 13 pound bag of turkey and rice dog food, etc.
Green Pantry stocks their food around northern England, but presumably keeps their golden product at bay.
There’s no sign of a partnering luxury dog food yet.
