Diversity Careers at Nestle Purina

Nestle Purina - Employer Profile



In 2001, Nestlé acquired Ralston Purina Company forming 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, has created a leading, globally competitive business. We earn trust every day through unparalleled knowledge of our consumers and their pets, expertise in nutrition, ownership of a comprehensive range of high-quality established brands, and dedicated associates who passionately push pet nutrition forward.



Our ability to deliver consistent, strong performance year after year, regardless of the challenges we face, underscores the importance of Nestlé Purina to the greater Nestlé organization. Nestlé Purina is the number one U.S. pet care company in sales, volume and market share and, as of December 2012, has achieved nine consecutive years of improved market share growth and 19 consecutive years of revenue growth. Purina represents approximately 59 percent of global pet care sales and nearly 70 percent of total global pet care profitability.



Purina’s belief that pets and people are better together drives us to build the strongest teams who enable us to produce the highest quality products. We recognize that, in order to have the best products, we must openly embrace diversity of all types. And it's the diversity of thought that sparks our most innovative ideas and fosters our most strategic partnerships. We value our individual differences that, ultimately, bring us closer together to empower, inspire and impact the lives of others.



As an organization, we're committed to cultivating a culturally diverse and inclusive environment to maintain a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Nestlé Purina is continuously in pursuit of attracting and retaining great talent that comes to us from a variety of backgrounds. While we're proud to house a uniquely diverse body of associates within the halls of Nestlé Purina, there's one commonality we all share: the passion to enrich the lives of pets and the people who love them.
