Why INABA

INABA is deeply rooted in a family tradition of excellence that has continued for generations. Since 1958, pet parents have entrusted us with the privilege of providing food that is human grade, nutrient rich, and guarantees feline fun. We are committed to the future of feline health while recognizing that food is one of life’s greatest joys for people and pets.

The Inaba CIAOTM brand

is rooted in our family tradition of delivering the best ingredients and products to our customers. In 1805, Mr. Yoshizo Inaba started his business in Japan, harvesting fresh tuna from the sea, while providing high quality food to families throughout Japan. Building on our seafood harvesting heritage, Inaba Foods branched into pet food in 1958 and in 1989, the Inaba CIAOTM brand was born.

Our company continues to thrive in the 21st century. Today, Inaba CIAOTM is the most popular brand of premium canned cat dinners and treats in Japan, with our products available throughout the United States.

The Inaba family

is committed to giving pet parents healthy options for their beloved cats. Our treats are low calorie, grain- free, moisture-filled, and prepared without preservatives or artificial colors. Our meat is derived from cage-free chicken, naturally raised on closely supervised farms, with our deep-sea tuna sustainably harvested and certified dolphin-safe.

Every Inaba CIAOTM product

is carefully made in our own state-of-the-art, FDA-registered facilities, which means we follow the same quality assurance procedures as a U.S. human food plant. Our packaging materials also have special oxygen-blocking properties to protect the health of your cat!

We know

that your cat is an important member of your family. Inaba Foods takes great pride in knowing we provide delightfully tasty and healthy treats that make both cats and their humans happy.
