Our Story

Play Video

The seeds that grew into Nestlé Purina were planted around the world a long time ago. From the banks of the muddy Mississippi River in St. Louis, Missouri, came Ralston Purina – our former name. From the shadow of Mount Rainier in Kent, Washington, came Carnation®. From the shores of Lake Geneva in Vevey, Switzerland, came our parent company, Nestlé. These companies all traveled different roads, weathering the storms and challenges of time, including World Wars, economic crises, competitive pressures, and enormous technological shifts. Our paths crossed in 2001 and changed our lives forever.

These are the very roots of our story.

Where Purina Meets Nestlé

In 2001, Nestlé acquired Ralston Purina to form Nestlé Purina PetCare Company. Nestlé's rich history in pet care, with brands such as Friskies®, Fancy Feast®, Mighty Dog® and Alpo®, combined with Purina's strong heritage and pet care expertise, created a globally competitive leader. We're consistently No. 1 in sales, volume and market share – year over year. Joining our Purina Family means more than striving to be the undisputed experts of pets and serving as the voice of the larger pet care category. You'll become an integral part of the world's largest food and beverage company – a global network of people and opportunities that we hope will exceed your expectations.
