Meet Mark, Purina Sustainability

How We’re Keeping the Future in Mind, Today

Nurturing a Better Environment

At Purina, we've been making high-quality and nutritious pet products for more than 80 years. We're passionate about pets and the people who love them. That’s why we’re continuously working to use the earth's resources more efficiently and to further improve our impact on the environment.

We believe that the essence of sustainability is learning to live within the boundaries of nature. By finding new ways to do so, we can supply high-quality and nutritious products while improving our impact on the Earth.

Now, we want to share some of the positive steps we are taking to improve our environmental performance, although we acknowledge there is still much left to do.
