I agree with everyone else that the food is great and I have 6 cats that absolutely love it....BUT....the packaging is overkill. Maybe you could cut the cost if you saved time and money in the packaging of this product. Also bigger cans. I admit I can't buy it all the time because of the price. PLEASE find a way to make it more affordable.

My kitties loved Simply Nourish canned food. My pickiest one rejected it initially, but after I put a little gravy on her lips and she licked it she decided she would try it, and, by the second day, she was enthusiastic about it.
The product inside the can deserves 5 stars. However, the product as a whole only gets four stars for reasons many people have already mentioned. Incredibly wasteful packaging. No one needs a plastic lid with every can. The product designers need to consider their niche market better. People who care about high quality and gluten free also are not into just wasting the worlds resources for the sake of looking spiffy. The cardboard sleeve also seems a waste.
Like others have mentioned, please make this product in larger sizes for people with multiple cats. I really dislike opening several tiny cans, (also a waste issue) when one larger one would have sufficed. I would love to see this product in 5.5 and 12 ounce cans.
Also, please make this product available online. I live an hour away from the nearest Petsmart, and although I LOVE the product and would love to become a regular buyer, realistically, I am not going to drive an hour just to get it when it is already pretty expensive and not really packaged ideally for me.
I do want to give a serious thumbs up, though, for the product inside the can. Low fat, high protein, moderate carbs, highly palatable, gluten free, kitties with digestive issues all over are thanking you. Mine included.
My cat is a very, very picky eater. We went through a host of different foods trying to get that elusive high quality + not horribly expensive + tasty, and since she has kidney issues we also had to get a canned food with low protein. This brand is it - my picky cat will eat nearly all the can varieties and the dry (which is a miracle, trust me!) Even better, we have two other cats who prefer this food to theirs, and once their food is gone we'll be switching them to this.
The problems are the excessive packaging, which some people talked about, the fact that I can't buy these online, and the fact that the cans are small. Considering how many cans my cat can eat, I would love to be able to buy bigger cans, or at least order them in bulk! Instead I have to walk out of PetSmart with a bunch of cans and no pride.
But my cat will eat them and her kidneys are stable so I love this product overall! It's just not as convenient as I would like.
I had a coupon and decided to try this cat food. I don't normally give my cats wet cat food. They get it for an occasional treat. I opened the can of this stuff and was impressed. It didn't stink like normal canned cat food and it actually looked good enough for people to eat. The cats seemed to hoover the stuff up. Although I do wish that they would have saved themselves (and us) the cost of the plastic lid/cardboard sleeve that comes with every can. It's wasteful and not very environmentally friendly.
We're loving this texture and content and the cats (ages 16, 5, and 3) are doing great on it. However, we don't need a plastic "storage" lid on every single can. Waste, and probably more $ for production. Ditto: the cardboard "sleeve" which replaces a can label. Waste, takes up more space, and when removed leaves us with an unlabeled can (which flavor was this again?). Content, though, is excellent.
Everything Simply Nourish makes is of outstanding quality at an affordable price. The canned food is made of real deboned chicken/fish and human-grade ingredients.
The first time I bought it, I was amazed to open the can and see real shredded meat and vegetables. There are no fillers, by-products, or mystery ingredients in this food, which is almost impossible to come by in canned food.
All of my cats eat the turkey formula of the dry Simply Nourish food and get some of the canned as a treat in the evening. They inhale every bit of it.
And since we made the switch, all of the cats have super soft shiny coats and look amazing! A+
I discovered this food a couple of weeks ago and thought it looked pretty good. My cat is big into chicken more than fish so I haven't tried the tuna variety so far. When you open it, it's just about as nice to look at as some sort of human food, you could imagine putting it on crackers or something! As for the cat, she snarfs it. In fact yesterday she kept asking for more and more until she'd eaten the entire can. She then went into fat snake mode (really full and sleepy) and went to bed! If your cat is into chicken, you can't go wrong with this. It also comes with a little lid on each can (which from a packaging perspective seems a bit wasteful) but if your cat doesn't eat an entire can it's useful for keeping it fresh.
