Our History

PURINA® History


We believe that when people and pets come together, life becomes richer. It’s a sentiment that has been present in all 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 in the Middle East 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?
