Re: wainwrights dog food
I dont believe what the shop assistant told you JWB is owned by the Mars company I Dont think they would market a product and not put a copywright on it.Why not e-mail the companys customer services department and ask them.Would be interested to know the answer.

Customer service at JWB is very good. I had a query and they got straight back to me. And good samples too!:)

I'm guessing that the member of staff at PAH was being a bit too enthusiastic, and economical with the truth. The Pets at Home and Wainwrights brands are excellent foods, and cheaper than James Wellbeloved, and so they shoule be because PAH don't have the distribution chain that JW have (see this link for explanation of what I mean)

The recipes are different, but that doesn't mean one is necessarily any better than the other - personally I'd go for the cheaper option which is Wainwrights!

Most natural premium foods use similar ingredients, and to make a recipe to broadly similar protein and fat content, the recipes are going to look not a lot different - but no, PAH haven't stolen JW's recipe!

I've been moving my boy from Hills puppy to James Wellbeloved, but have just seen this thread!!

What on earth does 'JWB Special Ingredients' mean???
