PURINA® History

We believe that when people and pets come together, life is better. It’s a sentiment that has been part of our businesses through time and really brought to life through the PURINA® brand that William H. Danforth created in 1904. This belief is now placed at the heart of everything we do and the products we make across the globe

The PURINA® we know today is the coming-together of three established pet care businesses: PURINA®, SPILLERS® and FRISKIES®. Each has its own rich heritage, and has played a vital role in establishing PURINA® as a global leader in pet nutrition. Want to find out more?
