Simple fact – cats are carnivores. Meat eaters.

So why is the main ingredient in this product corn meal? If that isn’t ominous enough, the next ingredient is rice, and then tapioca. Does that sound completely wrong to you, because it does to me.

ALDI Cachet Cat Food Review

Cats eat to satiate their need for meat and meat proteins, so they’ll consume hard to digest ingredients to extract what they really need. We find meat ingredients in the 4th and 5th spot, but given ingredients are listed in order of percentage it’s likely a small quantity.

The product contains food colourings. That’s a red flag. It also contains ambiguous “preservatives” which we can assume are cheaper, chemical inclusions.

Cachet is a French word, suggesting a prestigious product. This product is far from prestigious.

Products such as this are appealing on price tag. They’re not formulated for the health and well being of your cat.


Corn meal, Rice, Tapioca, Chicken Meal, Meat & Bone Meal, Tallow, Digested Animal Protein, Vegetable Oil, Lamb Meal, Salt, Vitamins, Minerals, Choline Chloride, Cheese Powder, Salmon Oil, Potassium Chloride, Dried Green Pea, Methionine, Taurine, Preservatives, Colours, Rosemary Extract.

Poo if you’re lucky. All bets are off when you’re talking about a food for carnivores made of corn meal.

My cats used to go crazy for Aldi’s Cachet cat food. I used to buy a box (24 cans) of wet food, a packet of dry food and fresh mince every week. They all looked good, smelled good and my cats used to love eating them. One day I saw that the packaging of ALL Cachet products have changed. I thought maybe it’s just the packaging and didn’t think twice about it. As soon as I opened a can of wet food, my cats took one sniff and walked away. Even by the end of the day when they were starving, they wouldn’t go near it. The biscuits and the fresh mince the same. I ended up returning everything. So disappointed! Why take a perfectly good product and turn it into shit? Is it greed? Well, you’ve lost a lot of customers Aldi. You thought you could fool cats, but they’re smarter than you. Every now and then you take a perfectly good product and turn it into something sub standard whilst keeping the price the same. What’s next? Chocolate? Shame on you Aldi !!!
